The Alpine County Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with local businesses, is offering a new type of visitor adventure - Taste of Alpine. The week-long event is an opportunity for customers to visit communities throughout the county and take in all that the local restaurants have to offer, from full-course dining to appetizers and drink specials. Taste of Alpine will run from Oct. 18-24 and includes several eateries and food and beverage retailers throughout the county.

“Many people know Alpine County for its world-class outdoor recreation,” said Alpine County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Becky DeForest, “what they don’t know is that we also have world-class dining.”

DeForest added that between COVID-19, the Tamarack and Caldor fires, and forest closures, the past two years have been a struggle for local businesses. “The businesses in Alpine County need our support more than ever,” she says. “We’d like to invite people in with open arms and show them that even during our shoulder season there is still much to explore, taste, and experience.”

Customers can participate by visiting in person, ordering takeout, or purchasing gift cards. Visitors and residents alike are invited to support the event while continuing to observe COVID-19 safety precautions.

A full list of participating restaurants can be found at www.alpinecounty.com/taste-of-alpine. The list is being updated regularly as locations and menus are added.
