Day-of tickets are $30 or $40 with sip stops and are available online at tasteofcardiff.com or at the Cardiff 101 office located at 2139B Newcastle Ave. in Cardiff-by-the-Sea.
New this year, eight sip stops have been added which will give participants a chance to enjoy a sample of North County beer and wine. Each sip stop will be hosted by a local business, giving sippers a chance to check out local business as well.
The music lineup includes Bucket Ruckus playing at Bull Taco, The Red Fox Tails at Seaside Market, Adrienne Nims at Ki’s Restaurant and The Shantyannes in the Rimel’s courtyard. Also, Cardiff’s own Ada Harris Chamber Ensemble will get the festivities started in the Rimel’s Courtyard from 5 to 5:30 p.m.
