For the 38th year, the Taste of Yorba Linda event will be returning on July 29 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Yorba Linda Community Center.
Around 75 food, beverage, and sponsor vendors will be on site, with local restaurants, breweries, and wineries showcasing their unique flavors. Meanwhile, guests can dance and enjoy live music from the bands King Salmon and the Funkyard Horns.
The event is hosted each year by the Yorba Linda Chamber of Commerce. CEO Susan Wan-Ross told The Epoch Times this year they are expecting around 1,000 people.
The Taste of Yorba Linda event is meant to help boost economic development in the community, said Wan-Ross. Another event coming up in two weeks, Restaurant Week, will also help generate interest in local businesses.
Spokesperson Alex Hernandez from the Chamber of Commerce told The Epoch Times a ticket to Taste of Yorba Linda “allows individuals to have unlimited food and drinks from all of the vendors at the event ranging from pizza and beer to ice cream and cookies.”
Some sponsors include the Orange County District Attorney's Office, the OC Local Tap Room, Toll Roads of OC, 11th Marine Expedition Unit, and Veteran Air.
One unique aspect of this event is the opportunity for community members to sponsor a Marine to attend. The Yorba Linda Chamber of Commerce and the 11th MEU Adoption Committee have teamed up to create this opportunity to thank Marines for their service and provide them with a fun evening.
There will be 40 Marines visiting the event from Camp Pendleton Marine Base in San Diego. Tickets to sponsor a marine are already sold out.
