Stately Oaks Plantation will once again host its annual Taste of Clayton event for the 18th straight year. Restaurants from both Clayton and Henry counties will provide the eats.
“The good thing is we have franchise restaurants but also a lot of local mom and pop places,” says Jan Turner, a member of the Taste of Clayton committee. “This is such a good way for them to get their product out to the community.”
Participating eateries include: Chick-fil-A , Frontera Mex-Mex Grill, Louisiana Catfish Kitchen, Blue Bell Ice Cream, Oakwood Café, Cracker Barrel, Honey Baked Hams, Butch’s Chicken House, Costco, Simply Southern Tourism, and Anderson Diner. New restaurants featured this year are: O’Charleys, Sam’s Wholesale Club, Gezzo’s Surf & Grill, Incredible Southern Poundcakes, Da Dancing Pig Hickory BBQ, and caterer Let’s Do Lunch.
Celebrity Chefs include Commission Chair Eldrin Bell and Chuck Ware, who will serve up their own dishes. In addition, this year the City of Jonesboro will celebrate its 150 year anniversary with attendees by serving birthday cake.
This event will be held Friday, June 12 from 6 PM to 9 PM at the historical Stately Oaks plantation, 100 Carriage Lane in Jonesboro. Admission is $15 per adult, $12 for seniors 60+ and $5 for children aged 4-12. Tickets can be purchased at Stately Oaks, the Road to Tara Museum (Jonesboro Train Depot, 104 North Main Street), and at Swint’s Feed and Supply (252 North Main Street).
