Plans are underway for the 2021 Taste of White Bear Lake!

The Taste of White Bear Lake has been an annual event on the second Saturday in September, held at Pine Tree Apple Orchard. The goal is straightforward: Let's celebrate our community of people and their businesses and raise money that Rotary flows back toward local and international service projects.

Public-health permitting, we are hoping to present the Taste event on Sept. 11. In recent years, we have had as many as 34 eateries, food vendors, breweries, distilleries, and vintners offering up their specialties.

Last year, of course, the Taste of White Bear Lake was canceled in late summer owing to the pandemic. In its place in advance, we came up with a Passport coupon book to celebrate our restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, and other vendors -- and support them in trying times.

The Passport coupon book will return this year, too, and serve as an individual entry to the Taste of White Bear Lake. There will be some of the same eateries and establishments from 2020, with hopes for new ones this year -- a more robust experience for all.

Please continue to return to this Taste website for updates on coupon sales and event news.

Thanks for your support for the work of Rotary -- serving others -- and the way you lean in to help your neighbors. Truly, we're all in this together.

On behalf of White Bear Lake Rotary and its 90-plus members,

Bob Timmons, Taste of White Bear Lake 2021 Chair
