Taste of Arcadia draws about 1,000 guests who enjoy the many different foods and tastes from more than 40 of the most exciting local restaurants, caterers and wine-and-beer vendors at no additional charge beyond the admission ticket. 

The face of Taste of Arcadia is Talk Radio KABC 790 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 Chef David Flood of Flooded with Flavor Catering Company, and others.

Pictures will be posted on the Chamber’s Facebook and available on the Chamber web site to those who provide e-mail for notification.

  • The Arcadia High School drum line serenading attendees as they arrive.

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.
