Plumas Arts invites the public to savor the ‘Taste of Plumas’
The sixth annual Taste of Plumas is one of the most anticipated events of the season, says Plumas Arts. The tastings begin at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds.
The staff at Plumas Arts reports that there are more restaurants, caterers and food business participating this year than ever before. Event organizers report that many favorites will return and they are also pleased to welcome several that are new to the event.
The Taste of Plumas will include sumptuous samplings from all parts of Plumas.
Returning favorites are: Alley Cat Cafe, American Valley Baking, Bella Luna Catering, Cafe Le Coq, The Drunk Brush, Evergreen Market, Feather River College Culinary, Greenhorn Guest Ranch, Longboards Bar & Grill, Mt. Tomba Inn, Pangaea Cafe and Pub, Quincy Natural Foods and Southern Accent.
New and back again are: AIW Catering, Beckwith Tavern, Cakes Unleashed, Courthouse Cafe, The Grille at the Chalet View Lodge, Nakoma, Smile Dog Catering, Sterling Sage, Traci’s Sweet Surprises and Under Cover Ale Works.
There are still a very few spaces left. Other culinary establishments that are interested in participating should contact Plumas Arts at 283-3402 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is one of the primary fundraisers for Plumas Arts, the region’s most active cultural programming organization.
Plumas Arts brings art programs to county schools and events and performances to local audiences; coordinates a regional cultural events calendar in print and online at plumasarts.org; works collaboratively with local organizations, businesses and groups; hosts Words & Music in three county locations and a gallery of regional artists in Quincy; and manages the Townhall Theatre.
The organization is organizing a largely volunteer effort to reoccupy the former historic Capitol Saloon as an arts center with plans of opening this spring.
Plumas Arts reports that Taste of Plumas has sold out every year. Because attendees offer rave reviews to their friends and neighbors, ticket sales are already very impressive. Organizers recommend buying tickets as soon as possible.
The presale price of admission, $30 for members of Plumas Arts or $35 for nonmembers, includes a souvenir wine glass and the opportunity to savor samplings from 20-plus restaurants and culinary businesses. Plumas Arts invites nonmembers to take this opportunity to become members with their benefit ticket purchase and commence support and savings with this initial investment.
Tickets are available at Quincy Natural Foods, and at the Plumas Arts Gallery at 372 Main St. in Quincy. Purchases may also be made with credit cards online at plumasarts.org or by calling Plumas Arts at 283-3402. After April 6, if the event is not sold out, all tickets will be $40 each.
