34th Annual Taste of the Town Santa Barbara


Taste of the Town Santa Barbara

Taste of the Town Santa Barbara is the perfect way to experience the best food and drink the city has to offer. Taste of the Town is a culinary event that showcases over 80 restaurants and wineries. It’s a great opportunity to enjoy your favorite Santa Barbara foods, discover new favorites or simply enjoy the live entertainment and socializing that accompanies the afternoon.


This year’s Taste of the Town will take place on Sunday, September 13  from noon – 3pm at Riviera Park Gardens in Santa Barbara. Tickets are $125 per guest online ($140 at the door) or available for groups (10-pack at a discount of $25/ticket). Tickets are available for purchase online or by calling 805-563-4685. 2015 marks the 34th Santa Barbara epicurean adventure, with over 1000 guests expected to attend.


Taste for a Good Cause

Besides entertainment that the event itself provides, perhaps the best feature of Taste of the Town is that the proceeds go toward a good cause. Taste of the Town benefits the local programs and services of the Arthritis Foundation, the largest non-profit organization that specializes in the disease. Their goal is to reduce the number of people affected by 20% by 2030. Unfortunately, for many people, Arthritis is easily overlooked as a major disease but over 50 million people in the U.S. including 300,000 children are affected by it.
