On Thursday, September 29th the Old Town North Community Partnership is hosting the Annual Taste of Old Town North in Montgomery Park. The Taste is a celebration of all the charms of Old Town North and the Parker- Gray Historic District.

As a restaurant in Old Town North and the surrounding neighborhood, we invite you to present to the community a taste of what you do best. You will be asked to offer sample tastings of food that is fully prepared on your own premises and that requires no refrigeration, cooking at the event or electricity; all parts of your offering must meet Alexandria Health Department Regulations, should be able to withstand warm weather and be easy to handle in a small portion. We will not be charging the community to enjoy any of the events of the day, nor will we be charging you!  

We do encourage participating restaurants to join the Old Town North Business Community. Learn more about the benefits of membership here.

Participants will be provided table space with tent cover. As this part of the Celebration is only from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm, we ask that you be completely set up by the 5 o’clock start time.

We hope that you will be able to join us. The residents and business people who frequent our sidewalks need to know you and what you do.

Please let us know soon as possible about your interest in supporting this great neighborhood event and the work of the Old Town North Community Partnership so we can make sure to list you on all of the marketing, social media materials and our media release. 

An opportunity not to be missed!

As an added bonus, participating restaurants will receive a $25 discount off the price of a listing in the
2022 – 2023 Old Town North Community Business Member Directory, both print and online versions.
2022 Listing Cost $75
2022 Participant Cost $50

You will be provided an eight-foot table. We will provide a cover for the table and overhead tenting. All items must be prepared offsite, require no heating, no refrigeration and no electricity. Also, you must provide Alexandria Health Department Certification; please attach a copy of that Certificate when returning this form.

Please keep in mind that the purpose of this event is to showcase what we have in Old Town North and to encourage people to live, work and play here!

"Hilco Redevelopment Partners (HRP) is proud to support the Old Town North Community Partnership and looks forward to helping showcase what this area has to offer with the Taste of Old Town North. We are honored to work with OTNCP and its initiatives that enrich the Old Town community and reflect our work prioritizing sustainability and strengthening communities.

Working with partners like OTNCP that share the same values and mission to create an area where people can live, work, and play is critical as we continue our transformation of the Potomac River Generating Station site. We are excited to reintegrate the once underutilized lot into a vibrant and walkable hub with businesses, housing, thousands of jobs, and open waterfront access that all community members can enjoy.”
