The Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick took on the Taste of South Coast in 2017. The annual event is held each year in May on Pier 3 in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The “Taste of SouthCoast” features restaurants, bakeries, and caterers from the SouthCoast area. Participants serve sample sized portions of their signature dishes from noon to 3:15pm. Tasters will be able to keep track of their sampling and cast their votes in the categories of “People’s Choice Award for Food”, “People’s Choice Award for Dessert” and “Best Booth Presentation”. Proceeds of this event support the charitable endeavors of The Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick Inc.
