First Town Downtown’s signature event, the Taste of Windsor, has gone hybrid as an exciting online auction and Restaurant Week February 4 - 11. The public is encouraged to bid on auction items and go to or order from select restaurants during Restaurant week to support the mission of First Town Downtown and help Windsor center thrive.

This year, the organization will hold its online auction and has organized a coordinating Restaurant Week to heavily promote local restaurants. "We think people will really enjoy ordering out from their hometown restaurants," says Ken Fredette, Executive Director, "especially when they can support their community at the same time. We're giving everyone a great excuse to go out!"

Each day of Restaurant Week features a different local restaurant or food truck. People who dine in or takeout just have to mention that they are there for First Town Downtown or Taste of Windsor, and the restaurant will donate a percentage of the order to the cause.

Diners can enter all week long for prizes by posting selfies on Facebook or Instagram from restaurant week with their restaurant receipt and hashtag #FTDTRestaurantWeek to be entered to win $50 Windsor center gift card.

The Restaurant Week line up is being scheduled now for dine in or take out. Make sure to tell them you are there for First Town Downtown! See the website for specific hours and other details.

The online auction features restaurant gift certificates, gift baskets, handmade woodwork items, wine, entertainment, travel opportunities and much more. The auction also runs from Sunday February 4th 8:00 am to Sunday February 11th at 8:00 pm. Register for the online auction at or call for assistance 860-247-8982.

"The annual Taste of Windsor is First Town Downtown’s most important fundraiser of the year," said President, Scott Hoffman. "By bidding on items and ordering food during this fundraiser, you will support First Town Downtown’s mission to support Windsor center development and provide free well-loved events in Windsor Center that attract residents from all over the region to our beautiful and historic town green."
