The Taste of the World, which represents countries across five continents, takes guests on an enchanting expedition of the locally owned ethnic restaurants throughout the International District of east Charlotte. The evening begins at The VanLandingham Estate with a reception featuring tours of the Estate & Gardens, music, drinks and more. Guests then board coach tour buses and are escorted to three of the over 26 participating restaurants. Community Guides provide fun facts about the east Charlotte route along which each bus will be traveling. At each restaurant, guests enjoy a special selection of food samplings from that restaurant's culture, as well as hear the owner's stories and history about that culture and cuisine. Guests return to The VanLandingham Estate for a huge dessert reception, music, prizes and festivities. Tickets are $45 per person. Purchase your tickets today!
