Taste of Five Points is back by popular demand!
Vulcan Park and Museum and the Five Points Alliance are working together to host the second annual “Taste of Five Points” presented by Spire – a celebration of the neighborhood’s 131st anniversary. Attendees will experience all the elements that exemplify the best of Five Points South, from culinary hot-spots to trendy retail to lively entertainment options.
Over 26 merchants – including retail, restaurants and churches from Five Points South – will set up at Vulcan Park beginning at 5:30 p.m. on May 8 to spotlight the goods and services they have available to their community.
“The gathering at Vulcan Park overlooking all of Southside (last year) was like a reunion of old friends mixed with a diverse group of locals who are drawn to the character and slightly bohemian nature of our beloved community. Great food and drink and a chance to meet some more of our neighbors—a good time to exchange ideas and ways we can make Five Points an even better place to work, live and celebrate life,” said Chef Frank Stitt of Highlands Bar and Grill.
