Sample the fare of a variety of Julian’s top restaurants, wineries and breweries at the annual Taste of Julian, presented April 9 by the Julian Chamber of Commerce.

Every establishment on the tour will prepare tasty bites or sips of their specialties, just for tour guests. Each paid participant gets a wristband and a map of locations on the self-guided tour, which takes place from 1 to 5 p.m. Be warned that it is so popular that last year, tickets sold out.

This year’s participating businesses are set to include Apple Alley Bakery, Buffalo Bill’s, California Mountain Bakery, Candied Apple Pastry Company, Cuyamaca Lake Restaurant, Granny’s Kitchen, Jeremy’s on the Hill, Julian Candy Basket, The Julian Grille, Julian Hard Cider, Julian Pie Company, Julian Tea & Cottage Arts, Menghini Winery, Miner’s Diner, Mom’s Pies (Julian and Wynola), Nickel Beer Co., Volcan Mountain Winery, Witch Creek Winery and Wynola Flats Produce.

Diana Garrett, Chamber vice president and chair for the event, said, "One of my friends moved to Julian, and she said, ‘The Taste got us here! It was so fabulous, we got a house up here and retired here.’”

Garrett added, "It is a way to introduce you to new places.”

Free parking is available at the corner of Fourth and B streets.
