The annual Taste of Jackson and Business Showcase will be held on Thursday, Oct. 7, from 5-8 p.m. at the Commerce Civic Center in Commerce.
The event will include the business expo booths, along with local food vendor booths. A children’s cooking area and a dessert cooking contest are also included in this year’s program. Vendors will be giving away specialty items and a “taste” of their cuisine.
There will also be many door prizes to be given away with a grand prize being a $1,000 gift card to Real Deals in Jefferson.
There is a $15 charge per admission ticket ($10 for children under 12 and Seniors 55 and over) and the tickets are for sale at the chamber in Jefferson and will also be available at the door the evening of the event.
A ticket buys entry into the showcase, a chance for door prizes, a taste from all the food vendors, access to the children’s section, an event tote bag and a chance at the grand prize.

This event is sponsored by the Jackson County Area Chamber of Commerce and area businesses.
