Yes! Taste of Chico is a loved and popular event and we are anticipating that this year the event will sell out prior to the event day. Do not be disappointed- get your tickets early. If we do have tickets available on the day they will be $10 more for each ticket.

Are tickets required for entry?

If you want to taste and experience all that Taste of Chico has to offer then yes, buy a ticket!

Technically, there is no "entry". The event is held outdoors on the streets of Downtown Chico so if you just want to roam the event and enjoy the sights and sounds, go for it. Guests wishing to enjoy food & beverage samples as well as headlining band Mojo Green will need to purchase tickets.

How big is a “Taste”

Taste of Chico is a sampling event, tastes will be just that, a taste. Think “bite sized” and “More is better than bigger”. Alcohol tastes will be between .5oz and 3oz, depending on the beverage.

Can I share my ticket?

If you want, but we don’t recommend it! Vendors will be doing one punch per visit so sharing will be limited to sharing each taste and remember taste are bite sized! Go on, you only live once! Get a ticket and savor each taste!

Are there ID requirements?

Yes. Taste of Chico is open to attendees of all ages. However, access to the Coors Light Cold Zone is restricted to guests 21 years of age or older. No children are allowed. No exceptions- including babies- sorry, it’s the law. You will also need your ID to clear up any ticketing issues you might run into so please bring it along regardless of the ticket type.

Are tickets available on site?

Maybe. If we have any left they will be available to purchase on site at a premium. 2017 sold out so we don’t recommend waiting. Do not be disappointed- get your tickets early, tickets purchased on the day will incur a $10 premium.

Are tickets refundable?

Unfortunately, refunds will not be processed. If you purchase a ticket and find you are unable to attend, you may forward your ticket confirmation email to a friend if you wish.

Yes. Print out your ticket confirmation with bar code and bring it WITH YOUR ID to the beginning at 11:30am on the day of the event. Event Staff will collect it and issue your official Taste of Chico punch card ticket.
