Claremore Elks Catering gives out samples to attendees inside Sailor Antiques during the 2015 Sip, Savor & Shop: Taste of Claremore.
The always-popular Sip, Savor & Shop: Taste of Claremore returns to downtown Claremore on April 30, offering an opportunity to sample local fare while enjoying the shopping offered in the downtown district.
The three-hour food and shopping stroll begins at 6 p.m. and spans the three blocks of downtown along Will Rogers Boulevard.
Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 on the day-of while children five years and younger sampling off an adult’s plate are free. Tickets will go on sale in the participating downtown stores mid-April.
In addition to the food and shopping, the evening will feature a variety of sidewalk entertainment by talented local musicians.
“We are really excited about the Taste of Claremore this year,” said Jessica Jackson, Claremore Main Street Executive Director. “It is a perfect event to showcase the great shopping opportunities downtown as well as the wonderful dining options and local talent we have here in Claremore. It’s truly an event for all the senses!”
In 2015, more than 25 local restaurants and wineries set up inside various downtown stores and businesses, showcasing samples to the hundreds of people sipping, savoring and shopping.
Jeannie Smith, owner of The Grapevine in downtown Claremore, is a member of the event’s planning committee and said this event is one of her favorites downtown has to offer.
“It brings the community together in a fun and relaxing family atmosphere, all while discovering what our downtown has to offer,” Smith said.
Sip, Savor & Shop: Taste of Claremore is family-friendly, but also a great date night option or a fun girls’ night activity, said Dell Davis, President and CEO of the Claremore Area Chamber of Commerce.
“We love any occasion to bring the musicians from the area out to show off the talent we have right here in Rogers County,” Davis said. “This is just a great event for families, couples or anyone who loves Claremore and all it has to offer.”
Sip, Savor & Shop: Taste of Claremore is hosted by Claremore Main Street and the Claremore Area Chamber of Commerce, both of which are non-profit organizations in town. Proceeds of the event go to support the organization’s individual missions.
It is sponsored by the City of Claremore, moreClaremore.com and RCB Bank.
