Jamey Helgeson: 11th annual Taste of Mower County cancelled

Published 6:30 am Saturday, September 25, 2021

While we were very excited for the return of the Taste of Mower County after it was cancelled in 2020, on Sept. 17, 2021, we made the difficult decision to cancel the event in the interest of community health and safety as we monitor the increasing spread of this new wave of COVID-19 in our community. 

All sponsors and chefs have been notified. While we will not plan to hold a live or virtual event this year, we have already set a date for Oct. 16, 2022 to hopefully bring back the Taste of Mower County as you have come to expect it with great food, great chefs and great people coming together for a good cause.
