This year’s Taste of Wheaton event has been cancelled. Taste of Wheaton is an annual event that takes place in June at Marian Fryer Plaza (2424 Reedie Plaza) in Downtown Wheaton that features food, music and dance, rides, and children’s activities. In a message to vendors and exhibitors, a representative from the Wheaton Urban District wrote, “we regret to inform you we are canceling the Taste of Wheaton this year scheduled for Sunday, June 4 due to unforeseen circumstances out of our department’s control” and “we look forward to bringing it back bigger and better in 2024.”
Update: According to County Councilmember for District 6 Natali Fani-González, restaurant recruitment was a factor with the decision.
Last year’s participating restaurants included Frank’s Burger Place, Green Plate Catering, Hollywood East Café, IHOP, Los Cobanos, Methi Indian Restaurant, Nando’s Peri Peri, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Nut House Pizza and Terra Mare Restaurant.
