About this Event

- - - UPDATE - - -

Due to all the severity of the news regarding COVID-19 and due to the concerns of some of our boba vendors and non-boba vendors, it is with great regret that we, the venue, Taiwanese American Culture Center, and the organizers, Taiwanese American Professionals – San Diego, and Silk Road Productions are postponing the San Diego Boba Festival on July 11, 2020 to April 10, 2021.

We are respecting the general public concern for the overall public health and well-being of our guests, as well as for our vendors, so we are going to postpone the event. But don’t worry, Boba Festival is still coming!

The highly anticipated festival based on the beloved Asian beverage is coming to Southern California - the San Diego Boba Festival!

Produced by Silk Road Productions, creator of the San Diego Ramen Festival, and presented by the Taiwanese American Professionals of San Diego, look for it this spring 2021, as we celebrate and rejoice in all things boba at the San Diego Boba Festival!

But...just what is boba???

From an article on thrillist.com: "the term boba can refer to the entire drink-plus-toppings, the most popular topping being tapioca pearls (which also happen to be called boba). The drink as a whole is also known as bubble tea, pearl tea, and tapioca tea. The tapioca pearls that are also called “boba” are generally made from cassava starch, a root vegetable from South America that is also referred to as yuca.

Boba -- the drink -- originates from Taiwan, and originally, boba pearls were used in shaved ice desserts and paired with syrups, beans, and delectably chewy rice balls. Milk tea was also consumed regularly and thankfully, someone decided to merge the two, thus creating the genius, beloved drink we now have today.

Boba culture made its way to America through Taiwanese neighborhoods and blossomed near college campuses and high schools, where students would gather for study groups. Most boba shops, even now, are open late and offer affordable snacks and drinks -- which made them the perfect stop for late-night hang outs and crunchtime studying."

More details will be coming out in the coming months - but for now - save the date for this glorious, taste bud satisfying boba event of the year!

We are going to fan the flames of Boba Culture - the next big culture that will quench a thirsty person's craving of all things bobatacular!

Tickets are available now - and at the early boba bird price going on until December, you can get your tickets before they sell out!

Children 3 years and younger do not need a ticket – however, boba sample servings are not free and still need to be purchased for children if they wish to have any - or you can share your samples. For safety reasons, we will only allow ONE child per ticketed adult (for fire safety and capacity reasons).

There is no re-entry for general admission ticket holders.
