Get a free taste of what Woodbury has to offer at this year's Woodbury Community Expo.

A variety of local food vendors will flaunt what they bring to the table at this year's Woodbury Community Expo inside the Bielenberg dome.

The food booths are both selling and sampling their wares at the event, offering attendees a little taste of Woodbury.

Confirmed participants include: Acapulco, Green Mill, Great Harvest Bread Co., Brix Coffee - Crepes - Custard, Zantigo Mexican Restaurant, Joey's Pizza, The Tavern Grill and Angelina's Kitchen.

"We have a lot of variety this year," said Heidi Hickey, Woodbury Chamber of Commerce member services director. "We encourage the public to come hungry and try something they may have never had before."

The Expo provides a good venue for Woodbury residents to try something new, because there will be a lot of free samples, Hickey said.

At the Expo, Joey's Pizza will be selling and sampling pizza and pizza fries in addition to selling Chicago dogs. Angelina's Kitchen is offering samples of banana pudding and selling chicken Caesar wraps, a Thai chicken Salad with greens and veggies and Thai peanut sauce, a spinach feta salad and a beef chop salad. The Tavern Grill will offer bruschetta, chicken fondue, a tuna roll and chop salad.

Zantigo is serving burritos, chilitos, tacos and nachos in addition to free samples of chips and salsa. Brix Coffee - Crepes - Custard is offering frozen custard sundaes, shakes, cones and floats, smoothies, iced tea and coffee. Great Harvest Bread will sample its delicious breads and cookies and the Green Mill will serve up spinach tortelloni and homestyle macaroni and cheese.

"I hope people challenge themselves to try something they haven't tried before," Hickey said. "This is a great opportunity to do it."

In addition to the tasty eatables, many of the vendors will be offering coupons, so nobody should go away empty-handed.

"Even if you don't come hungry you can still pick up some very good offers," Hickey said.
