MUSKEGON, MICH. — Taste of Muskegon is celebrating it’s 14th year a little differently.

To follow social distancing guidelines the festival will be virtual and will be utilizing takeout services from restaurants along with food trucks.

The restaurants will still be coming up with creative menus featuring up to four items where you can then choose to order a full portion or a taste flight with bite-sized options.

Organizers say it was most important that they keep this festival going as so many restaurants have been impacted during the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Who knows what the landscape is gonna look like June 19 through the 28th. We may be able to dine in at that point but even if you don't feel comfortable you will absolutely be able to get everything to go. We've got a few more tricks up our sleeve taste is not just food we usually have concerts we have things for kids, we've got all sorts of things going on. So, we will have a few more things to announce as we go along here. I know music is definitely going to be a big part of this as well,” says Lisa Kraus, Director of Marketing.

This year the festival will be extended by 10 days and run June 19th-28th so you have a chance to check out all the restaurants.
