The Yorba Linda Chamber of Commerce is proud to present the 22nd annual Taste of Yorba Linda on Friday, July 27, 2012 from 6:00 to 10:30 p.m. at the Yorba Linda Community Center located at 4501 Casa Loma Avenue, Yorba Linda. This year the Taste goes back to the 60’s with a retro theme “A Long Daze Night” which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Beatles with a performance by Britain’s Finest, The Complete Beatles Experience.
The Taste of Yorba Linda is one of the city’s most highly anticipated events with over 50 restaurants participating. This year many of the area’s delicious gourmet food trucks are scheduled to be on hand which is sure to become a tradition at this annual event. In addition to all the great food, there will be the traditional silent auction filled with a vast array of items donated by local merchants and an opportunity drawing both with the proceeds going to support other chamber of commerce functions. Also, enjoy live music and a DJ.
Don’t miss this once a year event when the Land of Gracious Living becomes the city of good eating and fun. As always, the dress code is casual or if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, period clothing is welcome. There will be something for the most discerning of taste buds. Hope to see you there!
