Virtual Taste of Downtown, May 29-30

Each summer, DLBA hosts Taste of Downtown, a multi-event series that invites residents and visitors to different neighborhoods in Downtown to sample and sip offerings from local eateries, enjoy live entertainment, and peruse shops. To adapt to the public health crisis and continue to support Downtown businesses by connecting them with the community, DLBA presented its first-ever Virtual Taste of Downtown: Takeout Together event on Friday, May 29 and Saturday, May 30. The free community event streamed live on Facebook, featuring cooking and cocktail-making demonstrations, shop tours, live music, and more.

By transitioning from its traditional and in-person Taste of Downtown event to a virtual in-home culinary experience and encouraging local takeout, Downtown restaurants and businesses were able to promote their offerings, connect with behind-the-scenes tours and demos, and ultimately continue to socially engage with patrons and the community.

Thank you to our sponsors, Long Beach Post, the Hi-lo, and Intertrend Communications for helping to make this event possible.
