Also, a description of each vendor will be featured in the Taste of Middlesex Program Book. Please note that a portion of the proceeds from the Taste of Middlesex will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

A great way to reinforce your brand and heighten your visibility to the Middlesex region is to be a sponsor of the Taste of Middlesex. Sponsorships include substantial benefits. Or you should consider advertising in the Program Book so people take extra notice. Please refer to the Sponsorship and Advertising page.

We encourage you to donate a Raffle item as it is a great way to raise your business’ visibility at this spectacular event. Please mail or drop off your raffle item to the Chamber Office by Tuesday, November 1.
