First Annual Taste of Madison County Huge Success

First Annual Taste of Madison County Huge Success

This past Saturday, June 19th, we hosted our First Annual “Taste of Madison County” in Downtown Comer at Cliff Yarbrough Park. The main goal for this event was to showcase local, MADICO MADE businesses and student artisans for our community to see and support. We started at 11am Saturday morning and planned to go until 2pm. Due to weather we did have to end an hour early; however, that did not stop the fun that was had at this event.! We originally planned for around 150 guests to be in attendance. That number was exceeded, as we had around 400 attendees support our local vendors. We are thankful that everyone was able to attend, including both local vendors and guests. 

The food vendors that were in attendance included, Boutier Winery, Cake and Candi by Brandi, Comer Coffee Co., GG’s Sweet Magnolias, Honey Pond Farm, Iron Pin Ranch, KART WHEEL, Pig Skins BBQ, The Naked Farmer, and Goober Shack. Comer Lions Club was an organization of focus, and all drink purchases benefitted their Club. MedLink Georgia was on hand to discuss the comprehensive health care services they offer our community. Local student artisans included Joyce’s Floral and Co, and Proverbs 31 Farmstead. We were so pleased to advertise these Chamber members to loyal and future customers in such a public forum. This event would not have been possible without their talent and dedication. 

The executive director quotes, “We want to thank the public for showing immense pride in their community by attending and supporting member businesses who are constantly reinvesting in our community. We host these events to not only provide the public with exciting ways to engage with fellow community members and enjoy all Madison County has to offer, but also to connect them with local businesses that are making enormous contributions to our local economy. We hope that all attendees were reminded of how good it feels to shop locally and to support these businesses that support your schools, your youth sports teams, and so much more all year long. Admission proceeds benefit the Chamber's leadership, community, and economic development programming and initiatives so that we can continue advancing this community we love so much.”

A huge thank you goes out to the City of Comer for being such gracious hosts and to Georgia Metals for supplying us with a dining tent. We look forward to continuing this event and expanding in the future. Be sure to follow our website’s community calendar for more events over the next year!
