Celebrate Dorchester County W/ Dorchester Chamber - June 18th

2019 Will be the 10th Anniversary for Celebrate Dorchester and the event will be held on June 18, 2019 at Governors Hall at Sailwinds Park 5:30-9pm. The event is designed to allow Dorchester County residents to celebrate all we have to offer related to food and our heritage. Each year we gather local ingredients from purveyors in the County: Fresh seafood, meat, poultry, grains, fruit and vegetables, all grown and raised in the region. We then give those ingredients to local chefs to use to produce a dish to serve attendees at the event. The chefs do not know what they will get and are competing with other local chefs to produce a dish worthy of the People Choice Award.

Celebrate the freshness of Dorchester-produced foods, the artistry of our local chefs, the excellence of our County's businesses, and the camaraderie of our friends and neighbors! To be a vendor or tickets call the chamber (410) 228-3575.
