The Punta Gorda Rotary Club cordially invites Restaurants from Punta Gorda and Beyond - North Port, Port Charlotte, Cape Coral, North Fort Myers - to participate in the 12th Annual Taste of Punta Gorda and Beyond on Sunday, March 3, 2019, at Laishley Park in Punta Gorda. This is a premier opportunity for restaurants to highlight their distinctive cuisine for full-time residents, snowbirds, and other visitors to Charlotte Harbor. 

  

HOW IT WORKS:  We are featuring only 30 restaurants.  We offer a free listing for 2019 as a premier business partner on SWFL Club Card. You bring your A-Team, cooking/serving equipment, food supplies, booth decor, a menu sign, etc.  You sell $1 to $3 sample size bites (less than 4 oz) of at least one “signature” dish to Taste patrons.  One sample from each restaurant will be judged by our panel of food connoisseurs.
