Creating Lemonade
When it was clear that the COVID-19 pandemic would prevent us from holding our outdoor 2021 Taste of Lakewood festival, The Lakewood Chamber of Commerce and our sponsors were determined to find a new (and safe) way to promote Lakewood’s amazing restaurants and merchants. Working together, we were ready to do something incredible, to make lemonade, out of the lemons that had been thrown at us.
 
We hope that the outdoor Taste of Lakewood Food Festival will be back in 2022. This year though, please MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR JUNE 13-20 and join us as we celebrate our restaurants, merchants, and the community that we all thrive in.
The Lakewood Chamber of Commerce welcomes you and your business to join us and participate in the Taste of Lakewood Restaurant Week which will take place from June 13 through June 20th, 2021. Participating Lakewood restaurants will partner with the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce to offer their Restaurant Week lunch and/or dinner specials.
