2023 Taste of Carlsbad Village

Things to Do in Carlsbad Village

The 6th Annual Taste of Carlsbad Village returns to the Village on October 12th.


First, the Taste of Carlsbad Village is historically very popular, selling out quickly each year. Second, tickets go on sale September 4 at 9 am so you will want to put that on your calendar.

Carlsbad food lovers will spend 3 hours on a self-guided tour with map and Passport (the ticket), tasting their way around charming Carlsbad Village. You’ll receive a reusable stainless steel “spork” (and sip cup for those with Sip Stop tickets).

What’s the appeal? The opportunity to enjoy bite-sized samples from dozens of local popular restaurants.

Taste of Carlsbad Village

This is a tasty opportunity to check out eateries you don’t know or haven’t tried, plus enjoy your favorites, too! Here’s a list of last year’s 30+ participating restaurants and more may be added. The 2023 list of participating businesses will be finalized on August 23rd.

Food Only tickets are $45; Food Plus Adult Sip Stop tickets are $60. There are VIP Experience tickets at $100 (only 100). A total of 1000 tickets will be sold.

Adult Sip Stops around the Village will offer tastings of craft beer, wine, kombucha and more (21 and over).

Parking is free in Carlsbad Village. Given the popularity of this event you’ll want to arrive early for the best parking. You can expect plenty of people in town for this popular event!

The #TasteOfCarlsbadVillage sells out each year, and likely will again in 2023. You don’t want to miss this terrific food lovers event!
