A Taste of Murphysboro has become one of our most popular events, with tickets selling out within hours of going on sale. Featuring a large menu of items from locally-owned restaurants, guests will be able to sample some of the best food and drinks that Murphysboro has to offer! Beautifully decorated tables will be set up along Chestnut Street, behind the Jackson County Courthouse, where guests will be able to sample, mingle, and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Murphysboro Apple Festival.
Proceeds from this event fund the Taste of Murphysboro Scholarship, which will be awarded to the winning Murphysboro High School Seniors at the end of the evening.
