We're doing it! On October 14th from 5 pm to 8 pm, come taste your way through Carlsbad Village with us. Taste of Carlsbad Village 2021 - generously sponsored by First Team Real Estate - is a fantastic way to be introduced to and celebrate the exquisite dining scene in downtown Carlsbad. To make this a quality experience, we limit the number of ticket sales. Tickets sell out fast. 

Imagine sampling signature bites from over 30 restaurants along with wine, craft beer, and hard kombucha from 12 local businesses. And listening to music from five local musical acts, all while enjoying a lovely October night in Carlsbad Village. What restaurants can you expect to enjoy at this year's Taste of Carlsbad Village? New Village eateries Le Papagayo, Pure Taco, American Heroes and Brew, Gonzo Ramen, and others will join our favorite bites from Juene et Jolie, Vigilucci's, 264 Fresco's, Bluewater Grill, Park101, Handels and more. Over 30 restaurants will be serving up their tastiest fare.
