Some of the best local chefs and restaurants will come together this weekend in Innsbrook as the Innsbrook Pavilion hosts the second annual Taste of Virginia.

Local restaurants will showcase their best dishes and compete for the honorary “Taste of Virginia” title. Judging will take place before the event. This year’s judges include Whole Foods Market Chef Adrian Chapman, Matt Simmons of Capital Ale House, Henry Salmo of the Hilton Garden Inn, and Nick Lattanzio, a local food blogger. The top prize is a $2,500 radio advertising package from Summit Media.

In addition to great local food, the festival will also feature 20 different craft beer selections and Virginia wines.

As a family-friendly event, there will be a Kid’s Zone with moon bounces, cornhole, and other fun activities.

Bands such as The Whiskey Rebellion, Soul Expressions, and The Silver Bullets will provide the soundtrack throughout the day. It all concludes with a fireworks show–the only one in Richmond that night.

Proceeds will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

General admission is $10; VIP tickets including a private area with catered food and a cash bar are $70. Kids under 10 get in free.

It all takes place Saturday, July 1st from 3:30 – 9:30 PM. The Innsbrook Pavilion is located at 4901 Lake Brook Drive in Glen Allen.
