Attention Foodies! 3 Food Festivals Coming Up
Taste of Collier
April 27, 2014
436 Bayfront Place, Naples, FL 34102
Taste Of Collier, a long-standing Naples tradition, is an afternoon of family fun featuring live performances by area musicians, the crowd-pleasing ice-carving contest, chef’s competition and of course, savory samples from over 30 of the best local restaurants in Collier County!
Taste Of Collier is a way for area restaurants to say "Thank You" to the year-round residents for their patronage, while also raising monies for local charitable organizations.
Join us for the fifth year at Bayfront Naples, located at Goodlette Frank and Fifth Avenue South in Naples, Florida.
