2019 A Taste of Nelson

A Taste of Nelson is a local favourite: an evening where Nelson food lovers can enjoy tastings from local restaurants, wineries, and breweries, while raising funds and awareness for MS. There are also entertainment and activities throughout the evening including a guest speaker, silent auction, toonie auction, and raffle. Volunteer with us on Monday September 16th at the Prestige Resort! This is a sell-out event with over 110 guests.
