Local food lovers can now purchase tickets online for the 17th annual Taste of Madison, the Rose City’s annual fundraising food extravaganza, held Monday, March 19 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Brooklake Country Club, 139 Brooklake Road in Florham Park. 

Chefs from at least 30 local restaurants will serve up samples of their finest cuisine throughout the evening, while longtime event sponsor Gary’s Wine & Marketplace provides some liquid sustenance with a variety of fine wine, beer and spirits. 

Taste of Madison is a “must-attend party for food lovers and a celebration of the best of Madison,” said event organizers. “Always held in the first quarter of the year, the Taste of Madison was established in 2002 as a fun, town-wide fundraiser that is a cure for the winter blues.”

The event will also feature a silent auction and tricky tray, which event organizers said “are among the best in Northern New Jersey,” and a 50/50 raffle. 

Monies collected will benefit several non-profit, community-based initiatives, including a number of charitable causes, civic improvements and business development projects in Madison. To date, Taste of Madison has raised at least $500,000 and entertained more than 7,000 guests.

General admission tickets are $65 per person, with entry at 7 p.m. VIP admission is available for $100 per head and includes early entry at 6 p.m. 

All tickets must be purchased in advance. All guests must be 21 or older to participate. Recommended attire is business casual, organizers said.

In mid-February, tickets will be available for in-person purchase at Gary’s Wine & Marketplace, 121 Main St., and through members of the Taste of Madison Organizing Committee.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for interested businesses. For more information about rates and plans, advertising opportunities and corporate ticket packages, contact Madison Area Chamber of Commerce executive director Karen Giambra at MadisonChamber@gmail.com or 973-214-7014.
