The Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce began to host an annual basket auction in 1998 as a Chamber fundraiser. Since then, the annual basket auction grew into the largest Chamber fundraising event. The Taste of Pulaski County originated as its own event in 2005 where area restaurants provided samples of their menus. The Taste provided a venue for restaurants to show off their most popular as well as new menu items and gave area residents an opportunity to try something new. The two events combined in 2006 for the first Taste of Pulaski County & Basket Auction. Each year has a new theme which constantly provides new opportunities for creativity. The Taste of Pulaski County & Basket Auction remains the Chamber's biggest fundraiser but also provides a day of family fun and entertainment. Below are pictures from the 2012 Hollywood Red Carpet Taste of Pulaski County & Basket Auction.
