About TOTE:

Taste of the Eastside is an annual, one day, outdoor food and drink festival hosted at the historic Los Angeles River Center and Gardens. Set in this lush historic architectural gem, the event is a celebration of the evolving and diverse cuisine of one of Los Angeles’ most distinct and compelling regions. Through tastings, demonstrations and family events, Taste of the Eastside highlights not only the great food available at the many diverse eateries in this region, but also a drive toward sustainable practices and healthy lifestyles for families and communities. Absolutely all proceeds from the event go to benefit LA’s first cooperative nursery school, Rose Scharlin Cooperative Nursery School, as well as other local non-profit organizations like the Pablove Foundation, SEE-LA, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the Hollyhock House.

"What a great day of Food & Beverage! Thank you for truly organizing a smashing event had by both the vendors and the visitors! Congratulations to all and we can't wait to see you all again next year!" - Tricia La Belle, Proprietor, Bon Vivant Market & Café

"Taste of the Eastside surpassed my expectations in a profound way.
We expect this to be an Eastside fixture for years to come."
— Kyle Glanville, G&B Coffee
