Organizers of the 15th annual Taste of Downtown Glendale are getting ready to serve up food and fun along Brand Boulevard next week.
From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. next Wednesday, ticket holders can pop into restaurants for samples, have wine or beer at designated locations and enjoy entertainment along Brand.
The event is a fundraiser for Glendale Healthy Kids, which provides no-cost healthcare to children who have no access to insurance or are under-insured.
“The Taste of Downtown Glendale has become a much anticipated annual event which brings our community together for such a great cause,” said Peter Weir, board chair of Glendale Arts, in a statement.
Glendale Arts, which oversees the Alex Theatre, is partnering with Glendale Healthy Kids on the event.
Through Tuesday, presale tickets are $30 for adults with food only, $40 for adults for food and wine, $15 for children 6 to 9 years old and free for children 5 years old and younger.
On the day of the event, adult ticket prices go up $5.
“The Taste of Downtown Glendale not only highlights our evolving downtown scene, but unites the community in one common cause: raising money for the growing youth programs and health services in our city,” said Jason Roach, chairman of Glendale Healthy Kids, in a statement.
