Home Loan Taste of the Grand Valley is United Way of Mesa County’s signature annual fundraiser that has raised more than $400,000 over the years. A family favorite for 17 years, it is the biggest and tastiest food festival in town. Exhibitors provide samples of their food and beverage, and participants enjoy an evening of tasting and fun, all while supporting United Way of Mesa County.
Exhibitors compete for “Best of Taste” awards. Attendees vote for their favorites in categories like: main dish, appetizer, drink, dessert and more! If you'd like to see who's taking part this year, go to: http://www.unitedwaymesacounty.org/taste-grand-valley/.
Parking info: Attendees can park for free on the 2nd level and above in the University Center parking garage, on a first come, first served basis. There will also be a free shuttle available from 3:30-8:00 p.m. running from Lincoln Park to campus, provided by Townsquare Media. We will have a golf cart shuttle from the drop off at CMU to the Event for those who need it. (The drop off on campus is about a two block walk to the University Center, with no street crossing necessary.) Alternatively, here's a map of other paid parking locations on campus: http://www.coloradomesa.edu/campus-info/documents/parkingmap.pdf.
