The 2014 Taste of Culver will be held Saturday, June 14 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Downtown Jefferson Street will be closed to traffic as the food booths line the street, spilling over into Heritage Park, where tree shaded ta­bles and chairs will allow participants to enjoy a variety of foods and the melodious sounds of Ken Arnsbarger’s steel drums.

This year's event will also include the grand opening of the new Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee Visitor Center at 102 W. Jefferson St. Suite A (in the southwest wing of the First Farmers Bank building, facing Jefferson Street), and the Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee Museum of History (formerly the Center for Culver History) at 102 W. Jefferson St. Suite B (adjacent to the Visitor Center).
