Vienna and the surrounding communities came out on April 29 for the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department’s all-day 6th Annual Taste of Vienna Food Festival. From “B” to “V,” the area’s most popular restaurants teased hundreds of festival-goers as they sampled their way through dozens of tents selling their signature dishes. Strolling through the grounds of the VVFD festival with food in-hand or taking a respite from the sweltering heat under the big tent, teens, families, and mature adults sampled the ethnic foods, iconic American, upscale emerging trends, and beer and wine of more than 20 vendors.
Musicians performed on-stage throughout the day and a bounce house kept lots of children happy for a few minutes. Some food purchasers wandered across the street to watch the baseball games at Waters Field. By 6 p.m., the supplies of the foods at the festival were dwindling although crowds were not.
Taste of Vienna is both a community fun outreach and a fundraiser for the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department.
