One event on May 11, 2023 at 5:30pm

Taste of Downtown features live music and DJs, bite-size food samples, beer, wine, and cocktails from Downtown’s rich community of creatives, chefs, brewers, and mixologists, along with activities and experiences highlighting each neighborhood. The event is a three-part food and beverage tasting series, hosted by Downtown Long Beach Alliance, where guests can sample portions of signature dishes provided Downtown. Best of all, event admission is free!

Kicking off the Taste of Downtown series on May 10 and 11 is Taste of Downtown: East Village. Join us along 1st Street between Elm and Linden for two consecutive nights of indulging in delicious offerings while enjoying all our distinct Downtown neighborhoods have to offer. Our largest event in the series, Pine and Promenade, will follow in June, with the Taste series concluding at the Waterfront in August for some epic oceanside bites and breezes.
