A Taste of Santa Cruz, the first “Taste of” event in Santa Cruz County, has traditionally been held in November for the past 13 years. The new date for 2018 is October 18th from 5-8 pm, an earlier start and end time. For the second year the event will be held at the Museum of Art and History in downtown Santa Cruz. This local culinary extravaganza offering “all-you-can-enjoy” tantalizing tastes from local Santa Cruz County restaurants, wineries and local craft breweries has helped the Santa Cruz County Association of REALTORS® Housing Foundation raise almost $400,000 since the inception of the popular fundraising event in 2004 to benefit its grant program to help first time home buyers in Santa Cruz County.
Tickets are $50 in advance and $55 at the door. Tickets can be purchased online at ATOSC.com beginning on September 4th.
“Last year, we sold out for the first time and we know it will again be a sell out with the level of incredible chefs, vintners and brewers bringing the best Santa Cruz County has to offer to the event this year”, said David DeTeso, the SCCAR Housing Foundation Chairman. “The Santa Cruz County Association of Realtors Housing Foundation is proud to once again offer this incredible event to the community to help more teachers, care workers and other vital members of our community purchase homes in the County.”
