Taste Trenton 2023, scheduled for this weekend (June 9th through June 11th), has been postponed due to the air quality emergency engulfing Trenton and New Jersey, which is expected to continue for several days.
Bernard McMullan, the coordinator of Taste Trenton, announced this morning that considering the projected continuation of the air quality health emergency throughout the upcoming weekend, Taste Trenton—a self-guided restaurant tour of nearly three dozen Trenton-based restaurants—will be postponed in the summer.
“The newest projections for the continuation of smoke in the air in the region indicate that the air quality emergency will continue through the weekend. Those of us who have spent any time outside in the past few days know that the Taste Trenton experience will be greatly diminished if we attempt to carry on with the tour this weekend. Our guests won’t want to be out in this, having more cars on the road won’t help, and I fear that the taste of our restaurants’ wonderful food will be compromised.”, he said.
Taste Trenton will be rescheduled for later this summer after reviewing local community calendars. New weekend dates will be announced shortly.
Restaurants unable to participate during the rescheduled Taste Trenton weekend will have their registration fees refunded. Similarly, tour guests who have already reserved and purchased tour wristbands will also be contacted to determine if they can attend the rescheduled event or wish to obtain a refund.
