Taste of Union City debuts in September

Submitted By Sheryl Knudson

Celebrate good music, good food and good fun Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the signature event "Taste Of Union City Food Blues & World Music Festival".

"Taste of Union City Food Blues & World Music Festival" will offer much more than a blues music festival. The event will not only offer three stages of entertainment featuring musical headliners and a world music stage, cultural dancing and family oriented entertainment, but also a job fair for Veterans sponsored by the Blues in Motion Foundation as a way of giving back to the community.

The Blues in Motion Foundation demonstrates that Blues music and its large array of artists have the powerful ability to help others and make a significant change in the world. Festival producer E.C. Scott states, "No longer will we just keep the blues alive but we will disconnect it from life support so it can do what it was meant to do, be upright and in motion and giving comfort food to the soul."

"Taste of Union City Food Blues & World Music Festival" will also host a municipal cooking challenge that will bring out numerous local leaders in a spirited competition among friendly rivals. The dignitaries will show off their skills and fight to win the coveted Golden Skillet Award. Cooking classes sure to inspire chefs of today and tomorrow, a family world area with games and rides for children, a car show, and a chance to win a new 2013 Chevy Volt round out the day's activities.

For those who want to get a jump on the fun, famed Blues guitarist Deborah Coleman and local bluesman Chris Cobb and his band will perform Friday Night at the Kickoff Party at the Crown Plaza Hotel (32083 Alvarado-Niles Rd.) in Union City, one of the festival's sponsors. Showtime is 8 p.m. and the $15 admission includes a buffet.

Buy tickets and learn more by visiting or contacting ECS Productions/ Blues in Motion Foundation at (510) 487-5692. There are still a few limited opportunities for food vendors, merchants, sponsors and employers to get on board and participate in this feel-good event.

Advance ticket sales are $15 for adults and $10 for kids seventeen years of age and under. Tickets at the gate are $20 for adults and $12 for children.
