HOLYOKE — Holyoke Community College will hold an open house on Thursday, April 11 at the HCC MGM Culinary Arts Institute for anyone interested in taking classes there as well as members of the general public who want to tour the facility and sample dishes prepared by students and staff. 

The “Taste & Tour” event runs from 5 to 7 p.m. at the 164 Race St. facility and coincides with an open house at the adjacent Freight Farms hydroponic container farm, where visitors can learn about the ongoing urban-farming project there managed by HCC.

Guests at the open house will be able to tour the state-of-the-art, 20,000-square-foot Culinary Arts Institute, view cooking demonstrations, sample appetizers, meet faculty chefs, and learn about HCC’s certificate and associate-degree programs in Culinary Arts, as well as the college’s non-credit culinary and hospitality workforce-training programs.

HCC Admissions counselors will take on-the-spot applications and talk with students about programs and the enrollment process, including applying for financial aid and preparing for the college placement test.
