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, Murphysboro restaurants, guests will sample some of the best food and drinks that our hometown has to offer! Beautifully decorated tables along Chestnut Street set the scene with lights, handmade table settings and decorations, and personal touches provided by our scholarship applicants. Live acoustic music serenades guests while they eat, mingle, and enjoy the atmosphere that evokes the feeling of an old-fashioned street fair.
To top off the night proceeds from "A Taste of Murphysboro" ticket sales help fund the A Taste of Murphysboro Scholarship, which will be awarded to outstanding Murphysboro High School Seniors at the end of the evening. Find more information about the scholarship and how to apply HERE.
