Annual Event Celebrates Local Food, Drinks, Arts, and Education

The 6th Annual Taste of Our Towne brought the community together for a festive summer evening of local food, beverages, and entertainment. Over 275 locals attended the event at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts, which benefited Poway OnStage.

The event kicked off with a proclamation by Poway Mayor Steve Vaus, declaring Saturday, June 17, 2017 to be Poway OnStage Day. Poway OnStage President and CEO Michael Rennie expressed his appreciation for the honor. “We have strived over our 27-year history to bring to Poway the best in performing arts as well as providing much-needed arts education programs to our youth,” he said. “We are deeply thankful to the City for its continued support on so many levels.”
