Let Your Taste Buds Step Back in Time | Taste of the Past Comes To Old Town On July 11

June 29, 2015

On Saturday, July 11, the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park will host ‘Taste of the Past’ - a culinary walking tour with a focus on foods of early San Diego during the mid-1800s and how they reflected the many cultural influences of that time. We have a bunch of tickets to give away to this fun and delicious event. Read on for details and be sure to enter!

At Taste of the Past, there will be demonstrations of various historical food preparations, including early American and Californio cooking, that will take place in the plaza. Additionally, there will be a Taste of Old Town tour featuring historically-based foods from a number of food purveyors in the park.

The event will take place from noon to 4pm. Tickets for the tasting tour are only $10, and can be purchased online or on the day of the event at the Robinson-Rose Visitor Center. Because of the limited number of tickets, it is recommended attendees purchase passes in advance. The price will increase to $15 the day of the event.
Proceeds from the sale of the tickets will go to continuing to support living history in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.
