FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 23, 2015) – A limited number of VIP tickets for the 33rd Annual Taste of the Town on Nov. 1 are still available.

Taste of the Town VIP tickets are on sale for $60 each or two for $100 and can be purchased by visiting www.jlfm.org.

The 33rd Annual Taste of the Town, Southwest Florida’s original “taste” event and one of the largest outdoor food and entertainment festivals, will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at JetBlue Park, located at 11500 Fenway South Drive in Fort Myers.

This year’s event will showcase more than 40 restaurants, live music, kid’s activities and more.

VIP tickets include unlimited access to an air-conditioned tent and patio with complimentary catered food by local restaurants, two complimentary beer tickets, unlimited water, shade and relaxed seating in the Family Thrift VIP tent, free parking and access to all areas available to general admission.

“Each year, our VIP tickets sell out and, unfortunately, are not available the day of the event,” said Karen Hutto, co-chair of the 33rd Annual Taste of the Town. “The VIP area is a great value, and the proceeds go to helping the Junior League give back to our community through our volunteer services and donations to programs supporting women and children in the region.”

Regular admittance to Taste of the Town is $5 per person, with children, 12 years old and younger, free. Parking is $5, and food tickets range from $2 to $5. Only cash is accepted at the event.
