Taste of the Chesapeake

THANK YOU for making the 2018 Taste a great success! Thanks to guests, sponsors, and vendors, we raised over $135,000 to continue our work improving rivers and streams in the Chesapeake Bay!

See photos from the event!

At our Taste of the Chesapeake, the Alliance recognizes our environmental leadership award winners and showcases our programs and our progress toward Chesapeake restoration. The Taste also helps raise critical funds to support our vital mission and increase the impact of our work across the Chesapeake watershed.

Join us at the Taste for an evening of unique Chesapeake-inspired food and drink, live music, raffles, and a silent auction! Items from last year’s silent auction included a weeklong Vermont vacation, Chesapeake waterway trips, sports event tickets, themed baskets, gift certificates, and much more!

For sponsorship information, visit the Sponsorship page.
