Last year in 2020 we saw cancellations of events on a scale we never thought possible. Thanks COVID. However, when the annual Taste of Greater Waterville was cancelled, organizers promised the public that the event would return in 2021 and would be 'bigger and better' than ever. It looks like they plan on keeping that promise.

According to WABI TV 5, the event will happen on Wednesday, August 4th from 11 AM to 9 PM. There will also be a 'venue change' too. Instead of the event happening on Main and Silver Streets and along the concourse, it will be happening at the Head of Falls area in the park.

Organizers are also attempting to make this year's event more 'focused on adults'. Children will still be welcome to attend with their parents of course, however there will be fewer kids activities this year.

According to Shawn Michaud, chair of the Taste of Waterville,

“There will be beer gardens set up throughout, so you’ll be able to walk around, visit the vendor booths, and enjoy the different music and entertainment from all the various backgrounds with a beer in your hand. There will be lots of room so people can be socially distanced, and again, following all the guidelines and adjusting as we need to”
