Taste & Tunes, the annual eating and listening event sponsored by the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce, is back Monday at the Shelby County Fairgrounds.

The event is a fundraiser for the chamber, with gates opening and food ready at 5 p.m. Tickets are $20, with children 10 and under are free with a paying adult.

This is the third time in the 26-year history of the event that is will be held at the fairgrounds after a long run as Taste of Shelby at Claudia Sanders Dinner House.

Johnna Maier, administrative assistant at the chamber, said that there will be about 27 or 28 vendors offering sampling of various dishes.

They range from Science Hill Inn and Bell House to catering companies to fast-food outlets to orchards and farms and even to the culinary arts class at Collins High School.

Featured entertainers this year will be guitarist/keyboard player Thomas Hood, who is familiar for his performances at area venues and events, and the band point1zero, featuring financial advisor Kamron Terry, which plays current and classic rock music.

Chamber Executive Director Shelly Goodwin has said the event has been popular since its move to the fairgrounds, and Maier said officials hope for more of the same.

“We’re expecting a big turnout and great weather,” she said.
