Harford to host Fourth Annual Restaurant Week

April 15, 2013

Harford County's Fourth Annual Restaurant Week will be held June 3 to 15.

Restaurants interested in participating in the annual event should contact Wini Roche, tourism and marketing manager, wjroche@harfordcountymd.gov or 410-638-3059, for details. Participating restaurants are required to be a Tourism Partner, plus provide a $25 gift card to be used as prizes for the contest.

Changes will be implemented for the 2013 Restaurant Week including more flexibility on the price point. Restaurants may offer three course prix fixe (price fixed) menus at a higher price point as long as two of those meals start at $20.13 (or less), plus tax, gratuity and beverage. Limited service restaurants may also participate by offering a special value.

Also new this year is a social media contest based qualifying diners to win gift cards from each participating restaurant. Contest cards will not be distributed at restaurants this year. More than 40 restaurants throughout Harford County have participated in past years. This year, as in 2012, the promotion time was extended at the request of the restaurants.

"By joining this promotion, Harford County's participating restaurants have seen an increase in business 10 to 15% for the week while expanding their customer base," Roche said.

The Office of Tourism will promote the week through radio, print, social media and on-line advertising. A list of the 2013 participating restaurants and their menu selections will be available on the tourism website at http://www.harfordmd.com by the middle of May.
