The annual Warrior Taste Fest is back and better than ever this year. I don't know anyone who doesn't love great art, unlimited food and drink samples, PLUS a live auction with money that goes right back into the organization.

The first time I attended the event I was impressed, especially with the talented artists completing their works of art live, right in front of you.

Think about how often you have walked past a painting and thought, "How did they create that?" Well, this is your chance to find out, and you'll have the opportunity to ask the artist what inspired the piece as well.

Warriors & Quiet Waters (WQW) is a nonprofit organization that works with post-9/11 veterans.

After years of paying service to our country, post-9/11 combat veterans have a new critical mission: finding their purpose in civilian life. Through outdoor experiences and a community that feels like family, Warriors & Quiet Waters guides veterans and their loved ones to thrive and find peace, meaning, and purpose. - WQW

WQW gives warriors a quiet and safe environment to help transition our veterans into civilian life. This event is one of the most significant events they hold and it is also the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded people.

The Warrior Taste Fest is on August 12th, at the Haynes Pavillion at the Gallatin County Fair Grounds. Tickets are on sale NOW and will sell out quickly.
