Nissan to present 2017 Taste of Williamson

Sept. 29, 2016


Plans are underway for the 2017 Taste of Williamson, set for March 5.

Nissan will be the presenting sponsor, in partnership with CoolSprings Galleria, to benefit United Way and its partner agencies.

“We’re proud to continue our partnership with United Way of Williamson County in presenting the annual Taste of Williamson,” said Rebecca Vest, Vice President, Corporate Development and Social Responsibility for Nissan North America. “We are committed to enriching the quality of life in the communities where our employees live and work, and United Way provides valuable programs related to education, financial stability and family health.”

Taste of Williamson, approaching its 15th year, raises money for programs aimed at improving lives and strengthening communities by focusing on removing barriers to learning, reducing burdens of financial need and supporting the community’s most vulnerable. CoolSprings Galleria has been a partner for the event every year.

“This event raises much-needed dollars for programs in our community,” said Mike Johnson, General Manager of CoolSprings Galleria. “We’re honored to be able to again host, sponsor and support such a worthwhile event.”

“We are grateful to work with Nissan, CoolSprings Galleria, our partner merchants, other sponsors and all those who help make Taste of Williamson such a premiere event,” said Pam Bryant, President/CEO of United Way of Williamson County. “Over the past 14 years, Taste has raised more than $346,810 to support local programs that are helping local people improve their lives.”

More than 1,500 people attended the 2016 Taste of Williamson, with dozens of restaurants offering everything from gelato to barbecued ribs.

The 2016 Taste of Williamson will be held March 5 from 7 to 9 p.m. at CoolSprings Galleria. Tickets are $35 in advance and will go on sale in December. For information about participating restaurants and ticket sale locations, visit
