Last day of April marks Taste of Rhinebeck food festival



The 15th annual Taste of Rhinebeck food festival, fundraiser and culinary competition returns


“Rhinebeck is the perfect setting for a food and beverage crawl,” said Dawn Morrison, executive director of the Northern Dutchess Hospital Foundation. “We are known for having great restaurants and we’re lucky that they are within a short walking distance. It really makes for a fun event.”


Taste raises about $25,000 for the hospital’s patient care services. It draws about 400 people.


It is also a competition.
