WEST ORANGE COUNTY  After years of Best Fest being in MetroWest, Ocoee officials decided to take on the 14th rendition, which will welcome to Starke Lake about 20 vendors who were not part of last year's Best Fest.

Here are three local businesses to look for April 14 at Best Fest 2016.


The tasting store philosophy of VOM FASS will fit perfectly with Best Fest.

One new vendor that will set up shop near Starke Lake is VOM FASS, a Winter Garden store for oils, vinegar, liqueurs, spirits and wines.

“Our store is a tasting store where you are encouraged to taste almost everything we sell,” proprietor Charlie O'Brien said of how VOM FASS fits right in with Best Fest's “The Taste of West Orange” slogan. “We have fine vinegars and oils and 13 Scotch whiskeys, as well as cognacs and bourbon. At the Best Fest, we will be focusing on our colorful and delicious fine liqueurs, such as latte macchiato, sour cherry and nut chocolate, to name a few.”

Press'd Juice Bar and Kitchen

The staff at Press'd is sure to have something flavorful and healthful in store.

Another addition to this year's West Orange Chamber of Commerce Best Fest is Press'd Juice Bar and Kitchen, a Winter Garden healthy food business, which will have samples of healthy snacks.

“We make everything from scratch in our kitchen,” Press'd said. “We use organic and local produce when possible and available. Our mission is to make healthy food available to every person, whether just starting on the journey or a health nut to the core. We are excited for people to try healthy alternatives!”

Hagan O'Reilly's

One of a select pool of returning vendors will be Hagan O'Reilly's, an authentic Irish pub in Winter Garden ready to welcome consumers to its new covered patio with eight added big-screen televisions, Hagan O'Reilly's Candice Vandervliet said.

“We offer 35 different draft beers and an extensive scotch list,” she said. “We will be offering shepherd's pie at Best Fest.”
