Taste of Chico

The 30th annual Taste of Chico took place Sunday, September 13, 2015.

It was a beautiful day - full of delicious food and drinks, wonderful musical entertainment, and a wide variety of artists displaying their works.

We wish to thank all of our generous sponsors, media partners, participants and community members for making this a successful fundraiser for the DCBA.

Next year's Taste of Chico is currently scheduled for Sunday, September 11, 2016.  We hope you will join us!


For those of you who may not be familiar with Taste of Chico, it's a food and beverage festival bringing together the finest local and regional restaurants, caterers, breweries, wineries and non-alcoholic beverage distributors.  Food booths are set up on the   streets of downtown Chico and guests are treated to "tastes" of their signature items.  The Coors Light Cold Zone (beer garden) is packed full of the best beer, wine and cider available in our area and while all of this is going on, there are 3 stages with live music, one stage with performance art, a massive art gallery in the city plaza and a newly expanded Kids Zone in the shady Fox20 parking lot.  Chico Velo hosts a FREE bicycle valet to encourage folks to ride and hundreds of volunteers are needed to pull this all together.  It truly is a wonderful community event!

Taste of Chico is the primary single-day fundraiser for the DCBA.  Funds raised through the sales of event tickets directly support the myriad of downtown Chico programs and services that are offered to our members and our community!  We could not do it without our fabulous sponsors, volunteers, and dedicated staff!
