Taste of San Marcos

x-tastemarcos2The San Marcos Chamber of Commerce is hard at work preparing an incredible afternoon of food and fun for community members to enjoy. The 3rd Annual Taste of San Marcos on Sunday, Aug. 15 will bring together the city’s finest local restaurants and beverage establishments for a celebration of our city’s unique flavors and flare.

Taste of San Marcos began as the vision of Margie Future. The 24-year San Marcos resident joined the Chamber’s Board of Directors in 2013 and created the Restaurant Roundtable, a group of dedicated local restauranteurs. The City of San Marcos is home to over 200 licensed restaurants, and Margie realized that a tasting festival would be the perfect opportunity to introduce North County community members to all the delicious possibilities right in their backyard. The first Taste of San Marcos in 2013 was a tremendous success, and Margie and the rest of the Chamber team are excited for an even bigger and better event this year.

x-tastemarcos3Taste of San Marcos 2015 will last from 1 to 5 p.m. on Aug. 15, welcoming over a thousand estimated attendees behind Old California Restaurant Row. Live music by Steal Dawn will provide a lively soundtrack to guests’ exploration of tastes from a wide variety of restaurants, vendors, and caterers, as well as libations from celebrated local micro-breweries, wineries, and beer-and-wine shops.

Presale tickets are available for $25 from the San Marcos Chamber and participating restaurants, and tickets at the gate are $30. All guests must be 21 or older. Restaurant owners who are interested in showcasing their business have until July 1 to reserve a booth or purchase discounted tickets through the Chamber’s events calendar. Businesses and community members can learn more by calling 760-744-1270 or contacting info@sanmarcoschamber.com.
