The annual Taste of Huntington Beach is coming back once again with all proceeds going to support the children’s library! The Taste of Huntington Beach event showcases the best of HB’s culinary talents and the region’s top wineries and breweries each and every year. I love how all of the money made for this event goes to benefit a great cause! For one all-inclusive price, attendees have the opportunity to enjoy unlimited samples and sips from some of the finest restaurants in the community.
I have been to this event in the past and it was so much fun! There is so much great food and so many fabulous wineries and breweries and you will go home very full! This event is awesome in that you can take breaks to watch the live music and socialize with friends in the grassy area while your tummy digests and then you can head back to stuff your face once again! See my personal photos throughout this article from my past experience at this event! 🙂
