You need to save the date for the 18th Annual Taste of Huntington Beach – This is a short little vlog about the last Taste of Huntington Beach event I attended. Thank you to Surf City Family for inviting me to cover this as media!
From the official Taste of Huntington Beach website:
Featuring delectable tastes from local restaurants and catering companies. Add in unlimited sips from your favorite wineries and breweries, along with live entertainment by The Ramsey Brothers Band for your listening and dancing enjoyment – and you have the perfect mix for a great day of food, fun, and friends!
All proceeds go to the Children's library of Huntington Beach.
Taste of Huntington Beach is a fun event. I think you should go to if you're in Southern California and especially in Huntington Beach and surrounding cities. I know people come all the way from Riverside County, Santa Barbara, and even San Diego.
It is a single day event. I wish it were a 2-day event, and I think many people feel the same way. The primary reason I wish it were two days is that you simply don't have the time or a big enough stomach to try everything. There's so much food!
Every time I go, I come out stuffed like if I had gone to an all you can eat buffet in Las Vegas after a 20 day fast. I had a chance to talk to the organizer and one of the requirements is that each vendor that participates must have at least 2000 servings. If memory serves me right, there were over 50 food vendors last time so there is tons of food to go around.
As you'll see in the video, these aren't tiny samples either. Many servings are big enough to be considered appetizer size and in some cases, you get a huge portion. Not to mention, the tastings are unlimited so you can come back for seconds, thirds, or more.
Another fun thing about it is that they also serve alcohol. You'll find local wineries, breweries, and distilleries serving their best. I highly recommend you check them out. I believe they still have their early bird tickets available right now. So go get some!
Taste of Huntington Beach will take place on April 28 from noon to 4:00 pm.
