This year’s 31st Taste of Creede Festival will showcase local art and cuisine on Main Street. This annual event was envisioned by local artist Steven Quiller and the Taste of Creede Festival will delight visitors with inspired local art and great food.
Pick a bench in Basham Park and enjoy listening to live, local music while noshing delectable treats. Then be sure to watch the Silver Chef competition, which pits local chefs against one another in a cook-off to create a winning dish. Each chef is provided with surprise ingredients, provided by Shamrock Foods, and has forty-five minutes to prepare an offering meant to delight the judges. The winning entry earns bragging rights for the ensuing year until next year’s Silver Chef cook-off. Thank you to Shamrock Foods and Monte Vista Co-Op for sponsoring this event.
On Sunday, head north on Main Street after lunch for the annual Quick Draw event. Artists begin with a blank canvas and have one hour to complete their one-of-a-kind works. Afterward, these pieces are offered in the annual art auction. Artists are readily available to offer their expertise to other interested art lovers. Come to the Annual Taste of Creede Festival to experience food and art in abundance!
