About TASTE of Laramie

The goal of TASTE of Laramie is to create a positive financial impact for businesses in our community.

CRUX, a cooperative marketplace, is hosting this event with the mission to promote awareness of local Laramie businesses and boost local economics.  The TASTE of Laramie (ToL) Event is designed to encourage the community to engage in what Laramie has to offer in a day filled with raffles, prizes, samples and promotions!

Last year’s event hosted over 200 attendees and resulted in over $37,750 spent by attendees in Laramie businesses. We also donated over $8000 to charitable organizations in the Albany County Community!

Our goals this year are to increase awareness of and promote local businesses, raise funds for local charitable organizations, drive foot traffic to local downtown businesses, and provide a fun event that can be enjoyed in our festive downtown atmosphere.

This year’s proceeds will be donated to:

    • Laramie Connections, a collaborative ‘gap servicing’ non-profit that connects those in need with those who can serve through CompassionCommunityConnections.
    • Love, Laramie, an event-planning nonprofit organization dedicated to Recognizing Needs in Albany County, Raising Awareness, and Rallying Support.

The funds will be used by these non-profits to fulfill compassionate community outreach in Laramie and the surrounding area.

The Laramie High School Softball Booster Club will be actively involved throughout this years’ event and will also receive proceeds from this year’s Pancake Breakfast.
