Taste of Waterville has been held annually every August since 1992. Each summer one can find a line-up of food trucks and restaurants offering their most popular dishes in the downtown. This foodie event is loved by locals and it is a tasteful family-friendly event showcasing the regions culinary flavors with a little bit of something for everyone.

This year Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce is encouraging community engagement by inviting area agency nonprofits to plan a family-friendly event or activity, preferably around food or physical activity, to attract people to the downtown area as well as support their nonprofit.
