QUICK BITES: A Taste of Simply Sumter


Take a stroll through some of Sumter County’s favorite eateries at the Fifth Annual Taste of Simply Sumter Food and Spirits Festival.

“For the first time, we’ll be golf-cart accessible,” said Jessica Kelly from the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce. “Last year’s event had 20 vendors, and this year, our goal is 40. The good news is we’re in a larger location than we’ve had in the past.”

The event takes place at Sumter Place in The Villages at 1550 Killingsworth Way, just off Highway 466-A near Buena Vista Boulevard, from 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24.

In addition to a variety of unique dishes prepared by Sumter County restaurants, there will be wine and beer tastings.

Visitors also will vote for the winner of the “Taster’s Choice Award.” Admission is $20 and includes the tastings, entertainment, and a Chinese auction with prizes valued at $50 or more.
