Taste of Summer
First Town Downtown hosted its Taste of Summer fundraiser on Tuesday, August 7. Despite the postponement and a downpour, the event was well attended. Thank you to Union Street Tavern, Barts’ Drive-In, Jim’s Pizza, Buffalo Wild Wings, Menchies, One Song Biscotti, Get Baked and Siam Corner Thai Kitchen for providing delicious fare for everyone’s tastes!

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who worked hard to make this event a success!

During the Taste of Summer, attendees enjoyed the Motown sounds of Personal Touch as they performed for the Summer Concert Series on the Green. The concert was sponsored by Berkshire Hathaway and Bart’s Drive-In.
Proceeds from this event benefited First Town Downtown, Windsor’s Main Street program that works to promote and enhance Windsor Center. First Town Downtown is Windsor’s chapter of the Connecticut Main Street Center, which advocates for the development and promotion of downtown areas in communities across the state.

Additional First Town Downtown programs include the Farmers’ Market, Summer Concert Series, Nightmare on Broad Street, and the Carol Sing.
