MADISON, NJ – The 17th annual Taste of Madison will welcome spring to the Rose City on Monday, March 19, 7-9:30 p.m., at Brooklake Country Club, 139 Brookdale Road in Florham Park, according to the Taste of Madison Organizing Committee.

This year’s slogan is “What Are You Doing March 19?” Meet Me @ The Taste.”

As guests sip on drinks and munch down local chow, they can also enter to win tricky tray prizes or take part in a silent auction, deemed by organizers as “some of the best (events) in northern New Jersey.” The event also features a 50/50 raffle.

Established in 2002 as “a fun, townwide cure for the winter blues,” Taste of Madison raised more than $500,000 for local nonprofits and entertained at least 7,000 guests since birth, organizers said.

Tickets must be purchased in advance and will be available in early 2018 at Gary’s Wine & Marketplace on 121 Main St. and at VIP admission is $100 with early entry at 6 p.m. General admission is $65 with entry at 7 p.m.
