Taste of Durant presented by Leadership Durant 2016-2017


Under the Durant Area Chamber of Commerce, the 2016-2017 class of Leadership Durant will be hosting the 7th Annual Taste of Durant. The event will be held at the Visual Performing Arts Center (VPAC) on the campus of Southeastern Oklahoma State University on the evening of February 25, 2017 from 7-9 p.m. 

“Taste of Durant is an incredibly popular event, giving restaurants and small businesses the platform to showcase their culinary offerings. It’s an event Durantites will not want to miss!” –Class member Mike Delloro
The evening will consist of local Texoma restaurants set up around the venue ready to serve members of the community tastes of their delicious cuisines. Accompanying the restaurants will be a wine tasting, live entertainment, and a silent auction. “V.I.P.” tables are available for purchase for special early access to the event. These tables consist of eight seats, a complimentary bottle of wine, and an hour of early access to the event that is unavailable for regular ticket holders. 

The purpose of this event is to raise money for the Crisis Control Center in Durant. The Crisis Control Center is an emergency shelter located in an anonymous place in town. They provide a residential facility for victims of domestic abuse to live temporarily in safety. They help feed, clothe, and counsel individuals who have suffered (or are currently suffering) from domestic violence. A portion of the proceeds from the Taste of Durant will go directly to the local Crisis Control Center.

The 2016-2017 class of Leadership Durant is happy to carry on this wonderful and unique event this year. Tickets are available for $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Durant Area Chamber of Commerce - 215 N 4th Avenue.
