On Sunday, June 4, hundreds of Ann Arborites gathered downtown for the city’s annual Taste of Ann Arbor’s food. Every year, various local restaurants set up food stands up and down Main St to showcase their cuisine.

The event, put on by the Main Street Area Association, featured upwards of three dozen different restaurants from the Ann Arbor area. From 11 a.m to 5 p.m., people in attendance payed for food with tickets that could be purchased for one dollar at the front of the blocked-off street.

The Community Activity Area on East Liberty St. featured various kid-friendly activities put on by the Ann Arbor District Library and the University of Michigan Exhibit Museum.

Live music was presented throughout the day by Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch. Artists in attendance included Stormy Chromer, Wire in The Wood, Wolfie Complex, Spencer Michaud, Jacob Sigman, and Kate Peterson.

This year, Taste of Ann Arbor partnered with Zero Waste Washtenaw in order to reduce the footprint of the festival. Zero Waste Washtenaw is a program started by The Washtenaw County Solid Waste Division in attempt to put on low-environmental-impact community events and reduce the overall waste reduction and diversion rate of Washtenaw County. Up and down the street, there were special compost waste stations along with volunteers to help people determine what is compostable and what is not.

Taste of Ann Arbor also partnered with Crazy Wisdom Bookstore and Tea Room and Mindful City to offer free mindfulness classes at Crazy Wisdom in the early afternoon.
