The Bethesda Urban Partnership (BUP) is looking for 100 volunteers to help set up tents, serve drinks and help drivers park during this year’s Taste of Bethesda, slated for Oct. 6.

The annual event typically draws 40,000 to Bethesda according to BUP, the Montgomery County-sponsored nonprofit that maintains and markets Downtown Bethesda.

BUP will again shut down Norfolk, Fairmont, St. Elmo, Cordell and Del Ray Avenues in Woodmont Triangle for the 23rd annual Taste, which it runs in conjunction with the “Come Back to Bethesda” classic car show and Bethesda Chevy Chase Rescue Squad open house.

Last year’s rainy Taste of Bethesda drew between 15,000 and 18,000 to sample food from about 60 restaurants.
