The Slice of Saugatuck Festival in Westport takes place from 2 to 5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 7, with over four dozen of Saugatuck restaurants, shops and galleries inviting the community to come and sample their offerings.
The event in the Saugatuck section of Westport also features live music, fire trucks for kids to touch, an auction, a Belt Tae Kwon Do demonstration and a chance to learn about 3D printing.

After highly successful events starting in 2011 the Slice returns for the eighth year. Come and see what’s happening in Saugatuck — it’s a renaissance of food, drink and activity.
Walk the streets of Saugatuck Center and taste your way from restaurant to restaurant, to liquor store, to retail merchant and back.
There is so much to do for the whole family.
Watch a Black Belt Tae Kwon Do demonstration by Westport’s award winning martial artists or check out the auction house items. Listen to bands and stroll along the boardwalk at the plaza overlooking the river or get grooving alongside the dance demonstrations.
Bring the kids and check out the Fire Department’s antique fire engine, the fire safety trailer and jump in a super bouncy house and learn about Maker Space and 3D printing in Luciano Park.
Grab a map and see if you can taste everything being offered. [Darienite.com editorial note: Don’t.] Your stomach will be full before you get to the end. Get your passport stamped and enter in the lottery for gift certificates to many of these fine venues.
Beer, wine and drinks are available from inside most of the participating restaurants or stop by our two outside beer gardens.
