“The Taste of Westmont is one of Westmont’s wonderful summer events and we invite everyone to come to downtown Westmont July 13th through 16th to enjoy this festival that offers something for everyone,” said Steve Golembiewski, President of Westmont Special Events Corporation.  “Our volunteers work hard to put together an exciting entertainment schedule and we think we have another winning line-up.”  Golembiewski added, “I want to thank all of our sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and community partners including the Village of Westmont for all their support in making this event a reality.”


The 2023 Taste of Westmont is a 4-day festival that will feature local restaurant food vendors, two stages for live music, an all-ages carnival with wristband specials scheduled throughout the weekend, crafters, vendors, and more.
