Taste of Tusc

Next Taste of Tusc: March 16, 2018

Enjoy a night of local foods, brews, and wines at the annual Taste of Tusc fundraiser. Held each March at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State Tuscarawas, Taste of Tusc gathers more than 20 vendors from across Tuscarawas County and the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area to share samples of food, dessert, wine, and beer with guests. The fundraiser, which attracts around 400 people annually, has raised well over $50,000 for the continued development of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, connector trails, and National Heritage Area.

Please check back soon for more information on the 2018 Taste of Tusc.
