Lakewood is one of northeast Ohio’s foodiest cities with a great restaurant on almost every block and virtually any kind of food you might crave readily available. So if any suburb can do a “taste of” event the way it should be done without reaching outside its own borders, it’s Lakewood.
This year’s Taste of Lakewood, taking place in Madison Park, features 25 food vendors, all based in Lakewood, serving everything from strictly vegan to hearty meat-based dishes, Italian to Mexican to Middle Eastern, with beer and wine vendors, dining tents and live music to add to the festive atmosphere. There’s even a kids garden where kids can learn all about growing their own veggies.
Admission is free, and food is pay-as-you-go — no annoying food tickets required. VIP tickets are available for $50 which provide VIP parking, special seating, a VIP bar and two drink tickets, staff to bring your food to you so you don’t have to wait in line and two items of your choosing from participating restaurants, also delivered to you in the VIP tent.
And yes, the event is dog-friendly, on leash please.
