Local restaurants, caterers, and wineries will be showcasing their signature dishes for everyone to sample. All the vendors are very excited to be able to show-off their hard work. Guests will be able to tour the Will Rogers Memorial Museum and enjoy music provided by JT and the Big Band throughout the evening.


“I have heard rave reviews from both vendors and guests that attended the Taste of Claremore last year. With the added entertainment from JT and the Big Band, it is going to be the perfect night out on the town for couples or friends,” said Lisa Dennis, Claremore Convention and Visitors Bureau intern.
