Taste of Oceanside

Taste of Oceanside is happening October 5, 2019! Join Mainstreet Oceanside for Downtown Oceanside’s premier culinary experience. Come taste your way through Oceanside’s exciting food and brew scene — one bite and sip at a time. Walk or ride your bike to each participating venue — or take a trolley — to sample local handcrafted cuisine and, optionally, beverages by the restaurants, brewers, and wineries that have made Oceanside one of the leading foodie destinations in North County San Diego County. Explore downtown restaurants and retail businesses while enjoying musical performances throughout the district.

In all, enjoy over 35 food and beverage tastings this year, including offerings by new restaurants and tasting rooms like Coomber Craft Wines, Sancho’s Tacos, Exhale Oceanside and Rosewood Kitchen. Returning this year to the corner of North Tremont Street and Pier View Way is Taste of South Oceanside, which will include pop-up tastes from the following South O restaurants: Panca Peruvian Cuisine, The Whet Noodle, Beach Break Cafe, Anita’s Mexican Restaurant & Cantina and Privateer Coal Fire Pizza.

Taste of Oceanside tickets are limited to 1,000 for this rain-or-shine event.

Available on their website below and in their Main Street Oceanside office. Advance food tasting tickets are $30, and food and beverage tasting tickets, $40, for attendees who are 21 and over.

Save $5 per ticket online through Aug. 31 with the code EARLYBIRD.

If any tickets remain the day of, they can be purchased for $35 and $45 at the attendee check-in booth at Civic Center Plaza, 300 N. Coast Highway.

Two dollars from every ticket sold will be donated to the North County Food Bank, which will provide 10 meals to North County residents in need. Based in San Marcos, the North County Food Bank provides food assistance to working-poor families, fixed-income seniors, low-income military families and children living in poverty in communities throughout North County.

Taste of Oceanside will continue to promote zero waste in Oceanside by giving a commemorative spork to each attendee. Provided by event sponsor Green Oceanside, the uniquely embossed Taste of Oceanside spork will eliminate the addition of over 20,000 plastic utensils to the landfill.
