South Routt Organizers of the Taste of South Routt in Oak Creek promise variety at the food and craft festival today.
"We've got something for the kids and something for the adults and something for everyone in between," event organizer David Bonfiglio said.
The annual event, which begins at noon, features the best food and crafts that south Routt County has to offer in a day-long festival-like event.
A local band, Worried Men, will play music during the festival, covering a range of tastes from country to rock to even heavy metal for the younger crowd. The band is led by Soroco High School English teacher George King, and Bonfiglio urges teen-agers to come check it out.
Activities for the children include a face-painting booth, a treasure hunt and a fishing booth.
A beer garden will be set up featuring a variety of brews from south Routt restaurants and taverns to cool off the adults.
Though only in its third year, the Taste of South Routt is an old-time, small-town community event that local residents want to share with the whole county.
"It's a great chance to have some old-fashioned community fun," Bonfiglio said.
Volunteers are still needed to clean up and tear down, Bonfiglio said. Anyone interested in helping should flag down an organizer at the event.
The Taste of South Routt begins at noon and ends at 8 p.m. today at Decker Park in Oak Creek. Worried Men will play from 4 to 7 p.m., weather permitting.
