Taste of Barrhaven

May 25th

The 9th annual Taste of Barrhaven, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Barrhaven, will take place at Longfields on May 25th, from 6:00-9:00 p.m.

The Culinary Arts program at Longfields will join over twenty-five restaurants from Barrhaven and Manotick, all of whom offer samples of their favourite dishes. For the price of admission you can sample as many as you like, and they promise that nobody goes home hungry!

The Rotary Club has been a huge supporter of LDHSS, providing many scholarships to students, and donations to school programs. Longfields is proud to be a part of the Taste of Barrhaven, and we hope you will join us that evening.
