Get “A Taste of OC” in Costa Mesa At The First-Ever OC Tastefest!

Posted on March 9, 2012 | 3:01pm | Travel Costa Mesa

Costa Mesa is a city for foodies, and is now featuring a top Orange County food and wine event to back up that claim!

The first-ever OC Tastefest will be held on May 4-5 in conjunction with the 2012 OC Marathon. The event will feature food and wine tastings (similar to the Taste of Newport), along with live music, cooking demonstrations, and a VIP tent.

With restaurants including Cucina Alessa, Marrakesh, Port Restaurant, Salt Creek Grille, Slater’s 50/50, Ten Asian Bistro, Wahoo’s, Wingstop and Zov’s Bistro, among others being added daily, the OC Tastefest offers the chance to sample foods from some of the best Orange County restaurants. Over 20 OC cities will be represented at the festival.

The OC Tastefest will not be held on Sunday, May 6, as the OC Marathon will be the main event at the OC Fairgrounds. All registered participants for the marathon will receive one free entry into the OC Tastefest.  The price of admission is $12 for a one-day advance purchase online ticket, and $18 for both days.

Here’s where you can buy tickets!
