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.
