The 30th annual Taste of Charleston runs October 8-10, 2010. The three-day celebration of Lowcountry cuisine is being hosted once again by the Greater Charleston Restaurant Association and will feature some of Charleston’s finest, nationally-renowned chefs. For more than 20 years, this charity fund-raising event has been named one of the “Top 20 events in the Southeast” by Southeastern Tourism Society. More than 10,000 guests are expected and there will be something for people of all ages to enjoy. In addition to a few new surprises this year, there will be three events returning to the weekend, including:

Taste – Iron Chef Competition will be held Friday, October 8, at the Culinary Institute of Charleston’s Palmer Campus in downtown Charleston and will showcase some of the best local chefs in a heated head-to-head battle in the Institute’s state-of-the-art amphitheater kitchen.

Taste of the Arts on Gallery Row will be held Saturday evening, October 9, at various art galleries in downtown Charleston. The art walk combines Lowcountry art with the culinary arts and will showcase the talents of local artists while offering guests a sampling of appetizers from a variety of Charleston’s favorite restaurants.

Taste of Charleston (Main Event) will be held on Sunday, October 10, at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant. The event will showcase a sampling of culinary treats from more than 50 of Charleston’s finest restaurants.
