Grab Your Passport and Let’s Go to Rahway’s Taste of Spring!

Rahway, NJ  — Rahway’s Taste of Spring, New Jersey’s premiere, wine, food and aperitif tasting is ready to help get you out of the house! While it  is not quite safe to gather in large numbers, we will still be giving our foodies a chance to get their tasting “fix” . 

This year, purchase a $5 Taste of Spring Passport from the Rahway Recreation Center located at 3 City Hall Plaza, Rahway. During four weekends in April, Taste of Spring “tourists” visit participating establishments during their scheduled times. Tourists present their passport and pay only $5 for a special Taste of Spring sample! Tasters will be treated to many of the same delectable desserts and enticing cuisine that is a signature part of Rahway’s annual event. You will even be able to vote for your favorites!

Just like at the larger Taste event, samples are meant to be enjoyed “on the go”. This year, we encourage Taste Tourists to be thoughtful of the indoor dining limitations brought on by the pandemic and head out with your sample. However, if the fare tickles your palette, feel free to head back in and order a full meal! 

The schedule runs Thursday through Sunday on the following weekends: April 8-11; April 15-18; April 22-25; April 29-May 2.  Details of when your favorite establishments are participating and where they are located will be available at and in your passport so you can plan your adventure!  

Many of our award winning restaurants will be joining us again this year so make sure you don’t miss out! From Rahway: Beana’s Para Siempre; Cook’s Kitch’n; Il Forna a Legna; La Malinche; Melao Cafe and Creamery; Rahway Bagels; Rahway Fried Chicken; The Coffee Box; Watt Hotel Lounge; Sabor Peruano; Gyro’s Corner; and Mr. Subs 3.  From the surrounding areas: Bahama Breeze (Woodbridge); and La Bon Bakery (Woodbridge); Climax Brewing Company (Roselle Park) Chevys Fresh Mex (Linden); and more are signing up every day! 

Passports for this year’s event are scheduled to go on sale early March 2021.

We are excited to have you participate in our Rahway Taste of Spring 2021.  Make sure you save the date for Rahway’s Taste of Spring 2022 on April 8th back at the Rahway Recreation Center!
