2020 Taste of Wilson County Celebration Week
Join us for an entire week through videos and social media to reflect on our annual Taste of Wilson County. Please like the Lebanon Wilson County Chamber of Commerce Facebook page to help us celebrate our event. During the week of December 7th- 11th, the Lebanon Wilson County Chamber of Commerce and the Wilson County Business & Education Coalition are asking our communities to continue to support all local restaurants and retail stores who have given so much to education in Wilson County. The Taste of Wilson County began in 2009 to benefit Teacher Grants, Wilson Books from Birth, Tennessee Scholars and student scholarships throughout Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Watertown.
For twenty - one years, the Wilson County Business & Education Coalition has funded 571 Teacher Grants totaling over $243,000.00, more than 19,000 children have benefited from the Wilson Books from Birth program and 5,871 high school seniors in Wilson County graduated as Tennessee Scholars and were awarded over $120,000.00 in scholarships.
We want to take this time to express our sincere appreciation to all of our past food and marketplace vendors, our Lebanon High School and Wilson Central High School culinary departments, our dignitaries, our emcee Mac Griffith, Hawk Specialty and others. All of our friends have made this a fun event every year.
A special thanks to our community partners, ticket purchasers, education systems and volunteers for always making Taste of Wilson County a successful event.
“During these unprecedented times, we are very thankful for our continued sponsors in 2020. Without you, our educational gifts would not have been possible this year,” said President & CEO Melanie Minter. “The Lebanon Wilson County Chamber of Commerce and our Business & Education Coalition are grateful for your passion and your dedication to education in Wilson County.”
