The Taste of Downtown, Elmira's premier event in March, serves as the primary fundraiser for the Annual Elmira Street Painting Festival. In 2020, the Festival is celebrating 13 years with a new location. The festival will move to East Water Street and Lake Street for 2020 with existing and new partners. We are excited to add new ideas to this family friendly event.
As the Taste of Downtown has grown in unison with the Elmira Street Painting Festival, so has Elmira's commitment to transform what began as a humble hope, into a regional celebration of Art, Music, Food and good times which is not to be missed. The Taste of Downtown and the Elmira Street Painting Festival brings awareness of the restaurants, services, and retail in the downtown district while supporting the art community.
Entry Tickets: Prepay online or via check by March 13th - $25.00 each. Tickets will be available at the door. However, early purchase helps us inform our restaurants with number of attendees.
