​​Setting a new standard for development and growth!  

Starting a new business or looking for ways to promote your business in the Best Southwest Area? The Taste of DeSoto was created to not only help small business grow but to push the "Shop Local" Initiatives that the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce is all about!

The Taste of DeSoto: Sweet & Savory sponsored by Methodist Charlton Medical Center, returns for its third year with plans for a bigger and sweeter event. The Taste will be Thursday, September 28th between 4 to 8 pm at the DeSoto Civic Center.

Sweet and Savory: A Celebration of Dining South of the Trinity is an annual event to promote local businesses and to encourage residents of DeSoto and surrounding communities in the Best Southwest to Live, Eat and Shop Local! The event will provide an opportunity for restaurants, food trucks, and caterers to offer samples of signature dishes. It will also feature family-friendly entertainment, live music performances and an array of retailers and service providers located in and around the southern Dallas County.

With over 400+ in attendance last year, we expect more families, entertainers, food and fun than ever before! Early bird registration will begin August 1st with booth fees starting at just $125 for food vendors and $150 for non-food vendors until September 15th. Booth prices will be slightly higher starting September 18th subject to availability. All food vendors will be required to get a $25 food permit from the City of DeSoto 2 weeks prior to the event.

Admission for adults will be $10 while admission for youth ages 6-11 and Senior citizens will be $5 per person. Admission include one FREE sample from each food vendor and larger portions will be available for purchase. You can purchase your tickets on EventBrite or at the door on the day of the event.
