This past Friday night Haynes Pavilion was the place to be in Bozeman.

The Annual Warrior Taste Fest to benefit the Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation was a great time with amazing food and drink. Guests were able to walk around the Haynes Pavilion and sample some of the very best food, beers, and cocktail the state of Montana has to offer.

This was my first Warrior Taste Fest and I have to tell you, I was extremely impressed.  It was the perfect blend of fun and information.  Not to mention all of the amazing artists that were on-site finishing their paintings and sculptures as guests watched and often cheered them on as a fantastic band played in the background.

Live music, Live art, and food and drink?  What more could you ask for?  Plus, 100 percent of all the proceeds go to benefit the Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation.

WQW was created with the goal of helping post 9/11 combat veterans and their families at no cost to them.  The vets have the opportunity to come to Montana, learn to fly fish, and have an incredible experience.  After, they return home with the fishing equipment so that they can continue to heal through the therapeutic activity.
