Join Us October 12th for the Q Williams Taste of Middletown

The Connection and its community partners are excited to announce the inaugural Q Williams Taste of Middletown, celebrating the vibrant culinary scene of our beloved city and memory of our esteemed community leader, Quentin “Q” Williams.

“The Taste of Middletown is more than just a culinary event; it’s a celebration of community and togetherness. Q Williams left an indelible mark on our city, and this event is a heartfelt tribute to his memory and his dedication to the people that make this city great,” said Brian Thomas, Director of Development at The Connection.

As the visionary founder of the Taste of Middletown, Q Williams cherished the diverse flavors that our city has to offer, and his legacy lives on through this extraordinary event. In his honor, we are bringing together Middletown’s most renowned restaurants, food trucks, bakeries, and breweries, live entertainment, and a silent auction. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit The Connection and The Q Fund at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County, which supports the causes Q cared about most: education, housing, and racial justice.

Sponsoring the Q Williams Taste of Middletown is a great way to give back, while associating your brand with an amazing event. We are offering sponsorship options starting at just $250, with increased branding benefits at every level.
