5pm–9pm on the Historic Oxford Square
Square Toast for Scholarships is a walking food + wine tasting event which is spread across restaurants and retail businesses on the Historic Oxford Square. On the night of the event, the area around the Square transforms into one large, varied restaurant. Event goers check in at the Lyric Theatre to receive their wine glass and a map of participating venues.
Square Toast for Scholarships is an event produced by the Department of Nutrition and Hospitality Management at the School of Applied Sciences of the University of Mississippi.
The Square Toast is one of the most creative and ambitious fundraising events I’ve experienced, and by far, one of my favorites. It’s the perfect opportunity for the public to try food from restaurants throughout the area, socialize while meandering around the Square, and help the Hospitality Management students in the process. I’d never miss it!
