“Join us for the best Taste of Garrett ever,” stated Theresa Mac-
Lennan, executive director of Garrett Trails. “Come support trails in Garrett County and have a great time doing it.”
The fundraiser’s 20 participating restaurants plan to provide samples of their new dishes and classic favorites which are prepared, produced, and served locally.

The year’s event will feature a “Fender Blender” competition and food prep demonstrations, including a cake decorating and a pineapple cheese ball carving lesson.
There will also be number of items auctioned, including a Kindle Fire. Entertainment will be provided by Jonny Rock.
“There is no easier way to support local business, as well as the construction and maintenance of the outstanding network of quality hiking and biking trails in Garrett County,” a Garrett Trails press release stated.
“If nothing else, come support and cheer your friends on the Fender Blender team. The red and blue teams are squaring off against each other to see which can pedal the fastest, blend the most fruit smoothies to sell, and collect the most cash.”
The red team will consist of Titus Beitzel, Bob Gatto, Mike Getty, Peggy Jamison, Judi Prather, and Dorothy Andreas Tuel. Blue team members will be David Cotton, Tom Johnson, Rick MacLennan, Rob Michael, Andie Meyers, and Laura Stamm.
Starting at 5 p.m., entry wristbands will be sold at the door. Entry for adults will be $30 each, while the price for children (12 and under) is set at $15 each.
In addition to the Taste of Garrett County, Garrett Trails is also organizing the third annual Race Up the Face. This competition pits its contestants in a foot race up the black diamond ski trail at the Wisp Resort. In its press release, Garrett Trails dubbed the race “the world’s hardest 400 meter run” and states that “participants may also walk the distance.”
