On Thursday, October 14th, the 4th Annual Taste of Carlsbad Village took over downtown Carlsbad Village in a grand celebration of its dining and beverage scene. Thanks to the generosity and support of First Team Real Estate, this culinary event of the year was a tremendous success.
With 30 restaurants, 13 sip stop host locations hosting 13 beverage providers, as well as a VIP Experience offering three locations with three additional beverage providers, and six bands, it was quite a night for the senses all the way around.
For a complete list of participants from food to beverage to retail host locations and our first VIP Experience participating vendors and host location, please visit the Taste of Carlsbad Village page and see who made this such an amazing night. These are the small businesses in Carlsbad Village (with a few beverage providers from surrounding areas) that made this happen. Please visit them and show them your appreciation for sampling the night away to 750 lucky ticket holders in this year's big event.
We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to the City of Carlsbad's Sustainable Materials Division for helping continue our "Green Initiative" for 2021 and making it stronger than ever. As an extension of their Carlsbad for a Waste and Disposable Free Future pilot program, each ticket holder received a reusable spork made from 100% recycled plastic in order to eliminate the need for nearly 23,000 single-use plastic utensils. They also helped us with a grant to offset the costs of eco-friendly serve ware so that restaurants and sip stop locations would not have to resort to using plastic or Styrofoam. We are proud to continue our efforts to reduce the impact this event has on our environment and cannot thank the team at the City of Carlsbad Sustainable Materials Division enough for their ongoing support.
The 5th Annual Taste of Carlsbad Village is slated for Thursday, October 13, 2022. This event sells out every year, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media to learn, in advance, when tickets are going on sale.
Thank you again to all involved. This is a very special event to the Carlsbad Village Association and we cannot thank you enough for making it shine year after year!
