Taste of Lawrence

Taste of Lawrence
4-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013

For more than 30 years, the Taste of Lawrence has been held annually to showcase our community to new educators and celebrate the start of the new school year. Always a great time, the event is aptly named as the wide variety of local food and beverage vendors truly offer those in attendance a ‘taste’ of the Lawrence community.

The Taste of Lawrence is a private event, open only to Lawrence Chamber members and Douglas County educators. The mixer is by far the Chamber’s largest, and one of its most enjoyable, social engagements of the year. Typically an outdoor event, the mixer is held rain or shine with a predetermined, indoor, backup site in the event of rain (

Tickets for the Taste of Lawrence will cost $25 for Chamber members and $12.50 for educators.

Tickets will be available soon both online, by phone and in person at the Chamber offices. Contact Adam Handshy at
