On March 5, 2023, the Punta Gorda Rotary Club hosts its 15th Annual Taste of Punta Gorda and Beyond at Laishley Park in Punta Gorda, Florida.
The 15th Annual Taste of Punta Gorda and Beyond is the season’s major culinary event. Hosted by the Punta Gorda Rotary Club Foundation with Presenting “Iron Chef” Sponsor Publix Supermarkets, the Taste features leading restaurants from Punta Gorda and nearby communities serving “tastes” of signature dishes. Additionally, some 60 arts, crafts, and non-profits will participate; there will be a 50-50 drawing and a Rotary Village featuring Rotary’s many humanitarian and charitable projects. There will be a special Fun Kids’ Zone and musical entertainment all day, featuring the Boogie Men and the Charlotte High School Silver King Jazz Band! VIP seating in the shade is available.
All proceeds go to the Punta Gorda Rotary Foundation and support local charities and nonprofit groups and international humanitarian projects.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is free parking at the Laishley Crab House, immediately next to the park, in the County Court House lots on Marion Ave and Nesbit St. Additional parking east of the County Court House on Marion Ave, and on downtown streets and in the downtown parking garage between Hwy 41 North and Taylor St. off Herald Court. Although it is a short walk from downtown, we hope to have a shuttle service.
What can I bring to the event?
Bring a camp chair to sit in and enjoy the music. Dollar bills for the $1 to $4 restaurant tastes. ATMs will be on site.
What does a VIP ticket get?
“Give a lot & get a little extra” by supporting the Punta Gorda Rotary Club Foundation (free beverage, seat in “Rotary Angel” VIP tent right by the stage, additional beverage service, special recognition).
