Taste of Temecula Valley - Event Overview
Awesome TOTV Concerts
The guys from Safety Orang named their band after one of their surfboards, their music is inspired by awesome artists like Sublime, Bob Marley, Green Day, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, and if you had to attribute them to specific genres it would have to be something like beach/reggae/rock. We listened to some of their music and they sound awesome, they are fun and will make a perfect soundtrack for a day of casual relaxation and of hanging out with friends and family.
The TOTV headliner, Lee Rocker, needs no introduction as he sold more than 10 million records with his band the Stray Cats, being among the pioneers of the MTV generation. Lee and the band were on the cover of the Rolling Stone mag, were invited on SNL, toured with the rock legends the Rolling Stones, and on Friday we will have the pleasure to see him live at Taste of Temecula Valley, where he will rock our socks off.
Delicious Foods and Beverages
As we mentioned before, music is not the only thing that we will find at TOTV, as the organizers promise that we will be delighted by the wide range of delicious foods and beverages. If you are a foodie, like us, you will be happy to learn that among some of the food providers at TOTV you will find Devilicious Eatery, Rustico Ristorante & Pizzeria, Crab Boil Catering, Bluewater Grill, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Hajia's Ghanaian Cuisine, and many others. Additionally, for those of us who enjoy a glass of wine or a pint of beer, we will be served by Karl Strauss Brewing Co., South Coast Winery Resort & Spa, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, Coldcock Whiskey, Wiens Family Cellar, Joya Sangria, and many others.
You are probably thinking that this sounds more like an event dedicated to grown-ups, but don’t worry, Saturday is family day and the youngsters will also have a lot of fun, as they will be entertained by the guys at Jolly Jumps, who will provide bouncy castles, carnival games, face painting, and other activities.
We have to admit that this year’s edition of Taste of Temecula sounds very promising, great music, delicious food, refreshing beverages, not to mention the fact that we love the location of the event, a place surrounded by antique stores and charming boutiques.

“The foundation’s goal is to alleviate the fundraising burden from parents and administrators by planning events that benefit all schools in the Temecula district. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law, and the raised money will support education in the arts, sciences, and technology – areas that otherwise will suffer further decline.” - TVFEE Chairman Mark Katan
