The Taste of Central Pennsylvania provides patrons with samples of the latest signature menu items from approximately 40 of the area’s top restaurants, caterers, wineries and breweries. The menu samples include everything from lunchtime soups and sandwiches to dinner entrees like chicken confit and roast duck, as well as desserts, snacks and beverages. While food and beverage events continue to grow in popularity, few of them are as family-friendly as the Taste of Central Pennsylvania which welcomes guests of all ages to enjoy the food & beverages, live entertainment and opportunity to participate in a raffle and silent auction.

The VIP reception, held prior to the Taste at the adjacent Harrisburg Hilton, provides patrons with complimentary champagne, wine, punch, hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment and more! The private taste offers patrons exclusive access to the Taste event for a chance to beat the crowds and sample the signature items before the doors open for the main taste.

As the Food Bank’s most successful fundraiser, the Taste has raised nearly $2.5 million over the past 27 years to support the Food Bank’s mission of fighting hunger, improving lives and strengthening communities. By participating in the Taste, you will help the Food Bank provide to more than 55,000 people in need every week.
