Taste of SoMo, Springfield’s premiere culinary event, has always celebrated our local restaurants, good food and community. That will not change in 2020. The format, however, will.
This year’s Taste of SoMo will not be a sampling event on a packed Park Central Square. Instead, the Downtown Springfield Association, SGC Foodservice and Ozarks Food Harvest are teaming up for Taste of SoMo: The Virtual Edition, a nine-day celebration of Downtown’s food culture.
Taste of SoMo: The Virtual Edition is scheduled for June 19-27. Foodies can purchase gift cards, in $5 increments, to participating Downtown establishments, with 100% of the proceeds going to the restaurants. Those gift cards can be used that week for dine-in, delivery or takeout service, or they can be saved for future use.
The DSA and Ozarks Food Harvest are also teaming up for a commemorative T-shirt. That special shirt bears the slogan, “Feed It Forward.” 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of Taste of SoMo: The Virtual Edition T-shirts will go to Ozarks Food Harvest. Participants can also donate to OFH while they purchase their gift cards and T-shirts on the Taste of SoMo website.

• Amycakes • Best Of Luck Beer Hall • Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar • BillyNeck Food Station • Black Sheep Burgers & Shakes • Casper’s • Civil Kitchen • Classic Rock Coffee Downtown • Druff’s • European Cafe • Finnegan’s Wake • Flame Steakhouse and Wine Bar • Gailey’s Breakfast Cafe • Greek Belly • Hold Fast Brewing • Hurts Donut Company • Inner Circle Vodka Bar • Kingdom Coffee • Lost Signal Brewing Company • Maes Gelateria • Maria’s Mexican Restaurant • Mo’ Beef • Mother’s Brewing Company • Mudhouse Coffee & Tea • MudLounge Coffee & Cocktails • Nonna’s Italian Cafe • Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe • Queen City Soda & Sweets • Queen City Wine Dive • Riad’s Burgers & Gyros • St. Michael’s Restaurant and Catering • Springfield Brewing Company • Sweet Boy’s Neighborhood Bar • Tequila & Mezcal Mexican Cuisine and Bar • The Coffee Ethic • The Golden Girl Rum Club • The Order • Tinga Tacos • More coming soon!
