As downtown Oceanside gains new restaurants, wineries, and breweries, Oceanside restaurants are becoming popular culinary destinations for foodies, travelers, and North County locals. Because of the incredible impact of the culinary industry on Oceanside, MainStreet Oceanside is launching the 1st Annual Taste of Oceanside!
1st Annual Taste of Oceanside
The Taste of Oceanside will take place on Saturday, September 13th, from 12-4 p.m. The event will take place from Nevada Street to Pacific Street, and Civic Center Drive to Seagaze Drive. Taste of Oceanside will also kick off Oceanside’s own Restaurant Week starting Monday, September 15th, and ending on Sunday, September 21st. The event is a great way for local restaurants to showcase their menu and for Oceanside residents and North County locals to celebrate the impact of Oceanside CA restaurants.
A Call to Restaurants
The MainStreet Oceanside Promotion Committee is looking for restaurants, wineries, breweries, and store fronts to host tastings and participate in the 1st Annual Taste of Oceanside. Restaurants will prepare 3-ounce tastes of your best dish or beverage to attract locals to downtown Oceanside restaurants, wineries, and breweries. The event is a way for restaurants to gain exposure and attract new guests to their restaurants.
Restaurants located in the footprint of the venue will be given the first opportunity to participate; restaurants outside the footprint venue will set up at Artist Alley and lot 35. Restaurants will commit to serving a minimum of 750 ticket holders and will donate their food in trade for exposure.
For more information or application, please contact MainStreet Oceanside.
