“Every year more and more visitors and media discover the amazing food Montgomery has to offer. EatMGM restaurant week gives us a chance to showcase and energize the local audience and tempt visitors to join us for a meal,” said MCVB Vice President Dawn Hathcock.

EatMGM is a ten day celebration and exploration of the bites, treats and meals that make MGM one of the best places in the south to eat. Organizers aim to deepen and strengthen the food community in Montgomery between restaurants, diners, visitors and the media; raise awareness locally and beyond of the variety and quality of restaurants and food experiences in Montgomery; and increase business for local restaurants during the late summer which can be a slower time for restaurants.
