The face of Taste of Arcadia is KLAA 830 AM radio star Peter “King of Cuisine” Dills, who will walk the red carpet, sign autographs in his booth, and be one of the judges of the annual Culinary Contest along with Food Network stars Jyll Everman and Cassandra Pugh, as well as Chef David Flood of Flooded with Flavor Catering Company.

  • The T.G. Metzger State Farm Insurance Monday Night Football Lounge returns with live viewing of the game on a big-scren HDTV that will be raffled off just before 9 p.m.

Other attractions include:

  • A classic car show presented by Wayne Williams of Professional Advisory Services.

(Click here to see videos of other years of Taste.) As always, a percentage of proceeds from Taste of Arcadia are donated to local non-profit organizations — $5 per ticket for every ticket sold by a pre-approved organization. Taste of Arcadia began as a much smaller event nearly 40 years ago to raise money for the Arcadia Tournament of Roses Association float. Known as both The Wines Shed Mixer and A Taste of Arcadia was held on the infield at Santa Anita Park for a period of time. When the AToR dissolved in 1999, all assets, including the annual fund-raiser, were transferred to the Chamber. The Chamber continued the food and wine event at Santa Anita for a few years under various names, including the Festival of Food, before moving it to the L.A. County Arboretum several years later and adopting the name of Taste of Arcadia.
