Jann Mirkov, Main Street: Greeneville Executive Director states “We are so pleased to have all these professionals participating in this year’s event. It is a great way for the vendor to connect and introduce their product to the public. Several of them will be offering coupons that only those attending will have access to.”

27 Years and Going Strong

Ann Van Buskirk, chairman of the GFWC Greeneville Woman’s Club International Outreach Committee and one of the event’s co-hosts, said “This idea started many years ago on such a small scale and look where it is today. We along with Main Street: Greeneville couldn’t be more proud of how each year this event is so well received in our community. We hear all the time how much people look forward to the annual Taste of Greeneville. It is a great way to sample an array of food from our area chefs all under one roof or terrace as the case may be. We look forward to a sell out crowd.”
