Taste of Minnesota is making a comeback – far away from its home site of Harriet Island in St. Paul.

Because of flooding at Harriet Island, Taste is being moved to the Carver County Fairgrounds in Waconia, it was announced Wednesday afternoon. The event is set for July 3-6 with two-dozen food vendors and about 30 musical acts, including Soul Asylum, Halestorm, Cowboy Mouth, Starship and Joe Nichols.

A longtime fixture on Harriet Island, Taste of Minnesota is returning after a three-year hiatus. 

Admission to Taste is free until 3 p.m. daily.  After 3 p.m., it cost $10, which includes $5 worth of food-and-beverage tickets.
