Taste of Laguna 2019The Taste of Laguna Food & Music Festival will be returning this Thursday with a variety of delicious foodie favorites from many restaurants throughout Laguna Beach along with some amazing music from 4 live bands!

This event combines two of the community’s favorite events, The Chamber of Commerce’s Taste of Laguna and KX 93.5’s concert, into one mega evening for foodies and live music fans! The event will take place on Thursday, Oct 3, 2019 at The Festival of Arts Laguna Beach.


There will be more than 30 local restaurants participating and award-winning chefs will showcase their most popular menu items, signature recipes, and specialty dishes. The festival stage will include 4 different bands playing four different decades of music (60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s) with a new cover band each hour. I am super excited for this.  2 of our favorite local cover bands will be in attendance, which include Flashback Heart Attack with 80’s music and Sega Genocide with 90’s music.  I look forward to hearing the 60’s band, Woody & the Longboards and the 70’s band, Polyester Express as well!

The event will be from 6:00 pm-10:00 pm on Thursday, October 3rd.  Get your tickets now through link here –> TASTE OF LAGUNA BEACH TICKETS.  All food is included in the price of the ticket.
