The Noblesville Chamber of Commerce’s annual Taste of Business event will once again fill the exhibit halls of the Hamilton Co. 4-H Fairgrounds March 3.

From 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. that evening, businesses from all over the county will set up booths to offer food and freebies to promote their products – from home repair companies to local medical facilities to area hotels and banks. However, the big draw is the food.

Each year, some of the most popular restaurants in Hamilton Co. and beyond bring customer favorites for guests of the event to sample as they make their rounds, but the event also draws newer food businesses trying to get their name out there.

Aside from eating, guests typically enjoy guessing flowers types and making arrangements with Adriene’s Flowers of Noblesville, dancing with mascots of businesses in the middle of the exhibit hall and entering for a chance to win prizes like gift cards or a weekend in a luxury sports car.

Attendance expected to be on par from previous years’ events. Mary Noble, director of business development, said approximately 600 guests throughout the day is expected, visiting more than 80 represented businesses (including Current in Noblesville).

“We’ll have about 10 restaurants, three car dealers, about 10 community organizations,” Noble said. “It will be a good mix.

By the end of the night, businesses will be crowned winners for the year. Last year, Ginger’s Café, 1804 Conner St., Noblesville, won two of three awards – The Bistro Food Award and The Peoplocity People’s Choice Award. The other award, The Silver Spoon Award, was given to Farmers Bank, who offered games of corn hole to the crowd.

Advance sale tickets are available online at noblesvillechamber.com for $5. Tickets at the door are $7. Businesses interested in booth space can download a paper application on the website or contact Mary Noble at mary@noblesvillechamber.com to see if spaces are still available.
