Eat Local, Give Local: Junior League of Wichita Announces ‘Taste of Wichita’ October 2nd-11th


This article is sponsored by Junior League of Wichita.

Junior League of Wichita was heartbroken after announcing the cancellation of its annual upscale shopping event, Holiday Galleria 2020. This event is a tradition for many women in Wichita who start their holiday shopping each year by perusing the many unique merchant vendors from across the country.

“Holiday Galleria is not only our signature fundraiser, it’s an annual tradition for many,” said Junior League President Rachel Banning. Since the League’s inception, it has contributed more than $5.8 million to the Wichita community in the form of community projects. More than $44 million in-kind services in the form of volunteer hours have been donated to improve the quality of life in the Wichita area.

Despite the setback from COVID-19, Junior League Wichita is thrilled to extend an invitation to you for dinner—or lunch. 

Taste of Wichita will showcase a variety of local eateries who will put their best foot forward with special menu offerings. When you visit an old favorite or venture to a new locale, you will not only enjoy a truly unique dining experience but also be delighted in knowing you are supporting our community.

“Now, more than ever, it is important to be united in community and remain in service to each other,” said Banning. “Taste of Wichita offers opportunities to experience the different subcultures of our city, engage with friends, support our local restaurants, and our mission.”

How It Works

More than a dozen restaurant are participating in this year’s Taste of Wichita. Whether you’re dining in or picking up curbside, each participating restaurant will offer a special Taste of Wichita Menu during the 10 days.
