Every year, Taste of Chico spotlights local and north-state area businesses. Restaurants, apparel and boutiques, breweries, caterers and more set up booths to introduce the community to a sample of their business.

The Open Air Art gallery and three live music stages provided more entertainment while goers enjoying the food offerings, and offered a stage for local bands to be heard and seen.
