Previous Taste of Crossville

A threat of rain lingered over Cumberland County Thursday evening about 6:00 pm just as the Taste of Crossville was getting under way. The few sprinkles during the evening were short lived and allowed the event to continue as planned.

Hosted by Downtown Crossville, Inc. and sponsored by the City of Crossville and Dr. Kendall & Lou Morrison.

Nearly 1,000 people anxiously awaited the opening and enjoyed the samples of many of Cumberland County’s finest restaurants and caterers while listening to the fabulous sounds of Valley Grass, traditional bluegrass band.

Money raised from the 2015 event supports Downtown Crossville Inc. programs, such as the FREE walking tours of downtown, the annual 4th grade walking tours, and Thursdays at the Amp (free summer concerts at the Spirit Broadband Amphitheater) just to name a few.
