Taste of Pelham set for March 7

PELHAM – The Pelham Library Guild is preparing to host its fourth annual Taste of Pelham event at the Pelham Civic Complex on Tuesday, March 7, from 6-8 p.m.

The event will feature 27 restaurants, caterers and beverage providers from Shelby County and abroad showcasing two to three of their signature dishes, library director Mary Campbell said.

Patrons will be able to sample food and beverages from various vendors while a live band entertains them.

“It’s way more food than you can actually eat,” Campbell said. “It’s a great event for a date night, and you certainly get you money’s worth.”

The event serves as a fundraiser for the library guild. The money raised will go toward offsetting construction costs for the city’s new library.

The guild has set a goal to raise a total of $300,000. More fundraisers are in the works to help raise the money, Campbell said.

Tickets for Taste of Pelham are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at the Pelham Public Library, Iberia Bank in Pelham and online at Eventbrite.com/e/2017-4th-annual-taste-of-pelham-tickets-31978505571?aff=es2.
