¡Latin Food Fest!
Latin Food Fest returns to San Diego for another star-studded Latin culinary extravaganza and its signature event, Northgate Markets Grand Tasting Village.
The largest Latin culinary festival in California will transform the Embarcadero Marina Park North into a showcase for 100 restaurants, chefs, artisanal foods makers, and renowned wine, beer, and spirit purveyors.
Featuring many new thematic tasting tents throughout the Grand Tasting Village, dedicated pavilions will focus on specific topics ranging from Wine Tasting & Pairing to a Beer Garden, a ¡Taste TJ! Street Food Pavilion, and a Spirits & Craft Cocktail party where mixologists and distillers will hold tastings of bacanora, mezcal, pisco, pulque, rum, sotol, and tequila.
A VIP ticket grants early admission and access to the “VIP Playa” where each guest will enjoy special gifts, full pours of reserve wine, premium spirits and craft beer, gourmet bites, and hand-rolled cigars.
World-renowned chefs, authors, and culinary personalities will conduct 45-minute segments on the Culinary Demonstration stage, including chef Richard Sandoval, who is one of the top restaurateurs with over 35 concepts spanning the globe, including Venga Venga in Chula Vista. Afterward, attendees will have a chance to exchange words and receive a signature with the rock stars of the culinary world at the Book Signing.
In addition to the tastings, the festival also delights other senses with live music by Latin jazz/classical/Latin-pop sensations QUATTRO, an art show, and a silent auction of culinary supplies and memorabilia which will benefit our non-profit partner Feeding America.
