Welcome to the Taste of Eden Prairie!
The Taste of Eden Prairie is FEPS's signature fundraising event.
This year over 700 people will come together to enjoy the tastes of 20+ local restaurants, enjoy activities & games like our fabulous silent auction
and Cork Pull, and test their knowledge with Trivia Challenge: a fun new engaging game for you and your friends to play!
We are grateful for the great support we receive every year from local restaurants, businesses, volunteers, and corporate and personal financial sponsors. Taste would not be possible without the generosity of our community.
Funds raised from the Taste of EP are used to further FEPS's mission to support and enhance the legacy of excellence in Eden Prairie public schools. Proceeds from Taste go back to our schools in the form of teacher & staff grants. The money is used for programs that wouldn't otherwise be funded by school budgets and benefits all students who attend our public schools.
The 14th annual Taste of Eden Prairie will be held:
Saturday, February 27th, 2016
6:00 - 10:00 pm
Minnesota Vikings Winter Park, Eden Prairie

New this year - Donate a Book!
If you aren’t able to make it to the Taste of Eden Prairie this year, please consider buying a book for two first graders (equivalent to the cost of a ticket).
Each year FEPS partners with the Eden Prairie Noon Rotary on an event called "My Book Day". My Book Day gives a brand new hard cover book to each first grader in Eden Prairie schools. The goal of this special day for the first graders is to encourage the love of reading for a lifetime.
This program supports classroom curriculum but more importantly it provides the tools and inspiration to bridge the gap into the home for continued learning and development. This year, first graders will choose a book from the following collection of books they’ve been reading during the year: Number One Sam by Greg Pizzoli, One Family by George Shannon, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julie Sarcone-Roach, The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle,
and Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
Please support My Book Day by purchasing a book for $20. Your name will be on a placard in a book presented to every first grader on April 20, 2016.
You can purchase your donation:
Thank you for your support!
