Unique Aspects of the Event:

Slice of Wheaton

Last year, The Wheaton Park District and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce brought local pizza vendors to the Taste of Wheaton on Thursday night. It was a huge success and a great way to kick off the event.

Business and Art & Craft Vendors

In 2015, we welcomed over 50 business vendors and 30 Art & Craft Vendors. These vendors get to showcase their products and services to the community.
