Get a “Taste of the Wisconsin Dells 2011″ and see what’s in store for 2012!
The Taste of Wisconsin Dells Annual Event was held on June 11th & 12th, 2011 in Downtown WI Dells.
The Taste of the Dells festival featured over 20 local Dells Restaurants serving some of their most popular menu selections.
In addition to a taste of the Dells cuisine the event also featured a beer tent which served a variety of Wisconsin micro brews from local breweries. (One of our favorites was a new summer beer from The Point Brewery in Stevens Point named, “the Nude Beach”)
Activities for visitors included a live variety entertainment stage, an expanded craft show, classic Corvette parade, family fun area with inflatable rides, 3 on 3 basketball tournament, book sale, antique tractor show and a classic car corral.
Our family had a great time! We sampled quite a bit of the food and everyone had their favorites. The Cannelloni from Carvelli’s were a hit, as were Marley’s Shark Bites and Taste of New Orleans Gator Bites. Everyone loved Famous Dave’s BBQ Pork and the Firehouse Pizza but most of all High Rock Cafe got top billing for their Pot Stickers! We all hope Justin or Wade will share their amazing secret dipping sauce recipe with us.
Also want to give mention to Monk’s Bar and Grill for the awesome sliders, Brat House Grill for a taste of their famous brats and Po Boy’s Catering for a great burger basket. The kids really enjoyed Hot Dog Avenue too!
Good Job and a Special Thanks to all the restaurants, vendors and entertainers who contributed to this year’s Taste of the Dells Event!
