For years, the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce has sponsored and hosted the Flavors of Fall Festival.
But this year, the organization will drop the one-day flavors event, which gives attendees the chance to savor the flavor of autumn brews and food from area restaurants.
Low turnout over the last several years, as well as new priorities for the organization, pushed the chamber to drop the event this year.
GRCC’s Board of Directors and staff issued the following statement earlier today (July 18):
The very popular and successful Taste of Reston is not affected by this announcement and will go on as scheduled next June.
A sincere thank you to the chamber membership for the countless volunteers and support of Flavors of Fall. Thank you to Boston Properties for providing the Reston Town Center venue for the past ten years. We would also like to thank all of the sponsors and participants who made this event a part of their autumn schedules.
The change of plans will not affect the Pumpkin 5K and Kids Dash, which has seen increases in turnout. That event is set for October 13 at Reston Town Center.
