Imagine this: a romantic night under the stars tasting gourmet cuisine from more than 30 East Valley restaurants and sipping a wide variety of fine wines, craft beers and spirits. Sounds like the perfect date night, right? That’s what Chandler’s 6th Annual TASTE. Culinary Festival is offering Valley residents 21 and older on Saturday, October 25, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Downtown Ocotillo.
Admission to the delectable event includes unlimited food tasting, 12 drink tickets and live entertainment. If you’re looking to truly make it the perfect date night, buy your couple’s ticket ahead of time and your admission will also include a gift bag with a bottle of wine, two souvenir glasses and gifts from local restaurants.
A recent relocation to Downtown Ocotillo was the perfect move for this culinary festival. The beautiful waterfront location provides the ideal setting for the guests to sip, savor and indulge. In addition, this event allows guests to support local businesses and charities through the silent auction.
Not only a delicious culinary experience for guests, TASTE. is also a fun competition for restaurants. Each year, event patrons cast their votes for their favorite participants in eleven “best” categories: Steakhouse, American, Asian- Inspired, BBQ, Booth Décor, Desserts, Italian, Mexican, Sushi, Wine Bar and Best of TASTE. Festival.
Featured (and competing!) restaurants include Boubon Jacks, Chao Chandler, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Otaku Sushi, Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion, SanTan Brewing Company, The Keg Steakhouse, The Living Room and many more. Get your tickets now!
