Taste of Local - 21 & Over

The Epicurean Event of the Year

Celebrating our Local Farmers and Ranchers

What better way to learn about local food then to experience it firsthand. The Third Annual Taste of Local brings together farmers, chefs and community to celebrate our local harvest and the diversity of great food we have right here in Ventura County. It’s sure to be the epicurean event of the year. Over 60 area chefs, wineries, brewers and farmers will showcase their culinary expertise.

Meet the Chefs

Ventura County has an amazing group of top-line chefs, many of whom have helped pioneer the locally sourced movement. Meet the chefs and purveyors as you taste their wares and learn from these field-to-fork specialists about the bounty that is Ventura County.

Homebrew Challenge

The Taste of Local Festival is teaming up with the Ventura Independent Beer Enthusiasts (VIBE) beer club to showcase The Homebrew Challenge. Guests will vote for their favorite as local brewers compete for top awards for the best home brews in the county.

Strawberry Short Cake Bar

In addition to building your very own strawberry short cake compliments of the California Strawberry Commission, Totally Local VC will provide a locally sourced grazing station to make sure you get enough to eat.
