Attendees order food from an employee of Pili’s Party Taco truck June 23, 2018, as part of the 36th annual Taste of Bloomington. This year's Taste of Bloomington will be replaced with a week-long “Taste To-Go” event from June 20 to June 26.

Due to COVID-19 the traditional celebration was canceled, according to a release, and replaced with a week-long “Taste To-Go” event from June 20 to June 26. Taste of Bloomington is an annual one-day festival in June celebrating local food, drink and music. Typically, the festival draws thousands downtown to eat from some of Bloomington’s most popular restaurants, drink and socialize.

During this week, people can order to-go food from participating restaurants. The full list of participating restaurants is to be announced soon, according to the festival’s Facebook page.

Taste To-Go, in partnership with German American Bank, is providing Taste To-Go reusable carryout bags to the first 2,000 participants. The first 500 Taste To-Go bags will include $5 gift cards to a local restaurant. Bags can be picked up Monday through Friday at Visit Bloomington, 2855 N. Walnut St., or any day of the week, from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. between Saturday, June 20 through Friday, June 26at the Monroe Convention Center, 302 S. College Ave.

“We stay at home today so that we may celebrate together next summer. Please mark June 19, 2021 on your calendar,” Taste of Bloomington director Talisha Coppock said in a release.
