Taste of Temecula Valley - It's "For the Kids"
HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Taste of Temecula Valley (TOTV) is a showcase of participating restaurants, wineries, craft and microbreweries, as well as specialty (craft/service) vendors, from across the Temecula Valley and southern California. Held the last weekend in April (Friday night and all day Saturday), TOTV is held outdoors, in front of the Temecula City Hall Conference Center in Old Town Temecula. Attendees stroll from booth to booth to sample tastes while enjoying live music and entertainment. General Admission Tickets can be purchased in advance, online at http://tasteoftemeculavalley.com/, or at the gate.

WHAT ARE OPTIONS FOR TICKET PURCHASES?
GENERAL ADMISSION PASSES are $10 for each day for adults. Children 12 and under receive free admission. Taste and activity tickets are a separate purchase. No money is used at TOTV booths (except for specialty vendors). Each taste ticket is $2 each and may be purchased in sheets of 10 online or at the gate. Each TOTV food or beverage vendor is required to offer a minimum $2 taste. Additional/larger servings are offered in $2 increments (4 tickets, 6 tickets, etc). VIP DINNER & CONCERT ADMISSION is offered on TOTV Opening Night only. Tickets for the VIP Dinner & Concert must be purchased in advance; they are not available at the event.
IS ON-SITE TICKET PURCHASE AN OPTION?

To expedite check in, we advise purchasing admission online; however, admission tickets will be available at the gate. Taste tickets (for food/beverage/activities) also will be available at the gate and inside the venue.

WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH MY G.A. TICKET?
Your general admission (G.A.) ticket grants you admission to the TOTV venue and access to live entertainment. Taste/activity tickets are sold separately.
HOW DOES PRINT-AT-HOME / WILL CALL WORK?

It only takes a moment to exchange your print-at-home confirmation at any of the 3 main gates on Friday night or Saturday. Friday event hours are 6:00-10:00 PM. Saturday’s TOTV is 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM.

WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
On-street parking in Old Town Temecula or parking in the City Hall Parking Garage is advised. Streets immediately surrounding TOTV are closed and you must walk to the event venue, which is accessible via three main entrances (please see map below):
  1. Mercedes St. South / Temecula City Hall Parking Lot entry gate, parking lot accessible via Mercedes St. & 3rd St.
  2. Mercedes St. North entry gate, located at Mercedes St. & 4th St. (street parking only)
  3. Main St. entry gate, located east of Old Town Front St. / Main St. intersection (street parking only)
CAN I BRING LAWN CHAIRS TO THE EVENT?

We’re very sorry, but due to insurance regulations and space constraints, lawn chairs are not permitted. There will be a limited number of rental chairs for your use; we encourage patrons to use any available seating (park benches, planters, etc.).

CAN CHILDREN ATTEND THE EVENT?

TOTV Opening Night on Friday has no children’s activities; it is billed as “date night” or 21+. Saturday is the TOTV family-friendly day. It features special Fun Zones with activities to entertain kids of all ages, and children 12 and under receive free admission. Activity tickets (same as taste tickets) are $2 each. To purchase alcohol, guests must be 21+, show proof of ID to purchase alcohol, and wear a designated wristband at all times during their time at the event.

MAY I BRING MY DOG?

Per health department regulations pets are not allowed, only certified service animals are permitted at the event.

WHY IS THIS EVENT BEING HELD?

Hosted by the nonprofit Temecula Education Foundation, the Taste of Temecula Valley event is an annual community fundraiser. All proceeds from this event benefit the students of Temecula Valley Unified School District in the form of grants and curriculum support in the areas of arts and sciences.
