Taste of Carlsbad Village 2019 - generously sponsored by Mission Federal Credit Union - is a fantastic way to be introduced to the exquisite dining scene in downtown Carlsbad. From the essential culinary must to the hottest new eats, Taste of Carlsbad Village allows you to experience first-hand the best restaurants, chefs, wineries, and craft brew the Carlsbad food scene has to offer. CVA limits the number of tickets sold to ensure a quality experience for all involved and we sell out every year in advance of the event.

How Does Taste of Carlsbad Village Work?

Taste of Carlsbad Village is a self-guided tour of the Carlsbad Village food scene. Tasters are issued a Passport with a map of all participating businesses so that you can savor the food and company at your own pace in this “only in Carlsbad Village” experience.
