Truly an Evening to Remember!

Thank you to all of our amazing restaraunts and vendors for an epic 2022 event!

Carlsbad's most inspired food and drink event, hosted by Carlsbad Village Association. Last year's self-guided culinary event had 31 restaurants and 17 beverage sip stops confirmed!

From the essential culinary must-haves to the hottest new eateries, Taste of Carlsbad Village presents the best restaurants, chefs, wineries, craft brew, and specialty drinks the Carlsbad food scene has to offer. Carlsbad Village Association limits the number of tickets sold to ensure a quality experience for all involved. Mark your calendar for next year because this year tickets sold out in under 36 hours!

The Real Stars of the Night

The real stars of the night are the restaurants, sip stop beverage providers, and the sip stop hosts who make Carlsbad Village shine. Below is the list of all participating restaurants (including seven new ones) and beverage vendors who brought their A-Game in 2022 and made the 5th Annual Taste of Carlsbad Village a night to remember. The combination of savory and sweet, meat centric and vegetarian, there is definitely something for everyone! And with craft beer, wine, hard seltzers, cocktails, hard Kombucha, and even a specialty rum shaved ice, the drink list is fun and creative. 

An All New VIP Experience!

The VIP Experience is limited to just 100 people! 2023 will offer a whole new VIP experience ........ stay tuned!
