Fine local food and beverage vendors will offer their cuisine in a festive family atmosphere at the Taste of the North Shore and Family Festival, set for Saturday and Sunday, August 4 and 5 at the Ascension Lutheran Church in Northfield, says event planner Candice Kuhnen, president of ABC Communications.
“This festival will provide an opportunity for families to have a taste from some of the North Shore's finest restaurants and have family fun on a prime summer weekend, while also supporting local charities,” says
