Taste of Minnesota to Return to St. Paul in July 2014

Taste of MinnesotaST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A Taste of Minnesota will return to St. Paul’s Harriet Island Park next summer after a three-year hiatus.

Festival organizers made the announcement Thursday.

A Taste of Minnesota will be under new ownership but using the same team that ran it successfully before the Fourth of July festival fell into bankruptcy in 2010.

Linda Maddox, widow of co-founder Ron Maddox, will be general manager of the 2014 festival. The couple managed Taste before it was purchased by International Event Management in 2009.
 
That firm had promised an upgrade in food and band lineups, but was forced to bow out after two years.

Reports say the new owner is 10K Lakes Inc., a group of metro-area investors.

The 2014 festival is scheduled for July 3-6.
