Taste of Temescal returns in 2021 as a socially distanced and COVID-safe culinary crawl, on Tuesday, May 18th, 5 – 9pm! Scintillate your palates with this culinary crawl (like farm-to-table trick or treat), one of Temescal’s most delectable annual events, and fundraiser for local schools and nonprofits: Oakland Tech, Emerson Elementary, Claremont Middle School, Sankofa United Elementary and La Clinica de La Raza! Enjoy an evening of food, drink, and live music, along Telegraph Avenue from 40th to 51st Streets, and in Temescal Alley.
Each of our 20+ participating restaurants offers a bite or small plate to each ticket holder, with 22 bites in total if you visit all the restaurants! Tickets are timed this year with two options: 5-7pm or 7-9pm, in order to limit the number of attendees at any one time. New this year, restaurants will be reimbursed for some of their food costs (normally donated) in order to help support our struggling restaurants. Purchasing additional food and drinks from participating restaurants at Taste of Temescal is also encouraged!
We are currently seeking volunteers for this year’s event. Sign up HERE to volunteer.
