Devour the Taste of Pismo
You don’t have to be a James Beard devotee to appreciate the fare that will be up for grabs at the 9th Annual Taste of Pismo. Presented by the Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce from April 26-28, the Taste of Pismo gathers together the Central Coast’s finest food, wine, music, and more, at the scenic Dinosaur Caves Park.
Better Than Home-Cooking
Kicking off this epic weekend celebration of foodstuffs and drink, “Farmfest on the Coast” brings together Central Coast farmers, winemakers, and chefs to showcase sustainability and locally grown, harvested, and handmade foods and vintages for unmatched farm-to-fork pairings.
This event highlights San Luis Obispo Wine Country while offering a platform to champion the hard work of local ranchers, farmers, and fisheries to present fresh, local produce. Those in attendance at Farmfest will know exactly where their food comes from – and literally be able to shake the hands that feed them.
Sample savory bites from twenty featured farmers, chefs, and restaurants, including Talley Farms, Splash Café, Rooster Creek, Tiber Canyon Ranch, Gardens of Avila, and Robbins Family Farms. Taste test pours from over 30 different Central Coast wineries, from Ancient Peaks to Zocker. Sustainable showcasing partners include Evo, Cal Poly Food and Wine Business, Central Coast Vineyard Team, Farm Supply, and more. Flapper-era jazz and French gypsy music provide the perfect backdrop.
The Tastiest Town on the Central Coast
The main event of Taste of Pismo takes place on Saturday, April 27, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Over 20 Pismo Beach restaurants and more than 20 wineries will be on display, offering up the tastes that have made Pismo Beach so famous for its food and drink.
This is the premier culinary and wine event of the Central Coast; locals flock to Taste of Pismo to support the eateries and vineyards they know and love, while visitors are lucky enough to be introduced to the finest flavors of Pismo Beach. It’s easy to hitch a ride to Taste of Pismo too – just hop on the beach trolley on Price Street and Shell Beach Road to get to and from this food-lover’s destination.
Eat, Sleep, Then Eat Some More
Wrap up the Taste of Pismo weekend with a delectable Sunday pancake breakfast and BBQ lunch, sponsored by the Pismo Beach Cities Lions Club with support from the local area Boy Scouts. The proceeds will benefit the revitalization of Camp Mabel French and the Joe Rose Memorial Center.
