15th Annual Taste of Cambridge

Today marks the 15th Annual Taste of Cambridge, a yearly event with food from over 100 fabulous Cambridge restaurants. 

Taste of Cambridge

The Taste of Cambridge transforms Charles River Reservation into a lush haven for foodies to   Taste of Cambridge gourge on creative, healthy and delicious cuisine.

Not only is the event a great way to spend time with family or friends, it also is for a good cause. Tickets provide support to local Cambridge non-profits doing work in alcohol and drug prevention and treatment.

The event includes a special Mocktail contest where Cambridge bartenders compete to make the best tasting “mocktail,” decided by local celebrity judges.
