Taste of DeLand - 10th Anniversary

What a great turnout we had for the 10th Anniversary Taste of DeLand.  Committee Chairs Janet Dixon and Melisa Reed did an amazing job organizing the event.  We had 26 restaurants participate.  Thanks to everyone who came out to make the event successful.

February kicks off Volusia Beer Week.  All across DeLand and Volusia County, craft beer enthusiasts will sample artisan beers from local pubs, enjoy a historic mural walk, and enjoy beer and food pairings.  On Saturday February 11th, over a thousand connoisseurs from across the state will converge on East Indiana Ave for the DeLand Craft Beer Festival.  Tickets and information for all the Beer Week activities are available at: www.VolusiaBeerWeek.com.

If Beer isn’t your thing check out the Krewe of Amalee’s Mardi Gras on Main Street Dog Parade in February 25th.  Thousands of our two and four legged friends will parade down Woodland Blvd. dressed in Mardi Gras fashions.  Information including registration forms are available at www.DeLandDogParade.com.
