Two Food Festivals You Won’t Want to Miss in September

Two mid-month food festivals to take in much of what these foodie neighborhoods have to offer


Published:

The Daily Scoop is among the participating locations in Taste of South Park

The list of eateries to check out and revisit in this city grows less manageable by the minute. These two half-day food festivals make it easier to stop in to try new things and revisit old favorites in a couple of San Diego’s hottest food neighborhoods.  

 

Taste of Downtown

Where: East Village, City Center, and the Gaslamp Quarter
When: Sept. 13, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Downtown San Diego has far too many eateries to explore at once. The next closest thing to doing that is the Taste of Downtown, a four-hour extravaganza of sample bites from 40 restaurants. Tickets ($40, day of) include free shuttle service around the participating areas. Among the eateries are names like McFadden’s, Gaslamp BBQ, Ciros Pizza, Café Sevilla, Monzu Fresh Pasta, Gaslamp Fish House, Gourmet India and plenty more.

 

Taste of South Park

Where: South Park at Fern St.
When: Sept. 15, noon to 4 p.m.

Take yourself on a tasting tour of some of South Park’s—and San Diego’s—most notable eateries. Ticketholders will be given a map to 20 participating restaurants, including Buona Forchetta, Kindred, The Rose Wine Bar, Cafe Madeleine, Communal Coffee, and Mariscos Nine Seas. The event is for all ages and limited to 400 people. Purchase tickets here.
