Do you love food! Do you want to experience international dishes in town without traveling around the world? Then don’t miss the Tastes of the Hill, a multicultural food festival on Sunday October 14th in the Richmond Green Complex located at 1300 Elgin Mills Road East between 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. There will be many local restaurants, bakers and specialty food servers that will tantalize your taste buds with North American, European, Asian, Middle Eastern and specialized cuisine from around the world.

This community event is designed to promote Richmond Hill restaurants and food vendors to the community by offering food samples that represent the rich cultural diversity of our Town and give residents an opportunity to experience foods from different countries. Proceeds from the event will donated to two local charities; the Richmond Hill Food Bank in time for the Christmas holidays and the Mayor’s Endowment Fund for the Arts. Tickets to the event are $10 per person; children under 7 years of age are given free admission.

Last year’s event was a huge success that sold out quickly. Restaurateurs, specialty food vendors and the Richmond Hill Chamber of Commerce asked to expand the event and allow more local businesses an opportunity to participate. In addition the Town of Richmond Hill, Fieldgate Developments, Forest Hill Homes, Madison Homes, Arista Homes and Four-Valley Excavating and Grading Limited are generously sponsoring the event and the venue.

Do you want to expand your restaurant business with free advertising? I invite all restaurant owners to participate in Taste of the Hill 2007. There is no cost for participating other than offering food samples. In turn, your involvement will support local charities and expose residents to the foods that make up the cultural mosaic of our community. Restaurateurs applying for a booth, people looking for tickets or those wanting more information call Vito Spatafora at 905-771-2517 or Michael Grit at 905-737-8985 ext 6007.
