Cave Creek, Arizona (August, 2018) – The 2018 Taste of Cave Creek event takes place Wednesday, October 17 & Thursday October 18 at Stagecoach Village in downtown Cave Creek. It promises to be a night like no other and the Town’s largest “Taste of Cave Creek” event ever.

More than 30 restaurants will descend upon Stagecoach Village for a two-day taste fest, Bryan’s Black Mountain BBQ, Buffalo Chip Saloon & Steakhouse, Cartwright’s Modern Cuisine, Indigo Crow, El Encanto, Harold’s Corral, Grilled Addiction and Wandering Donkey, It’s a Divine Bakery, Le Sans Souci, The Horny Toad, The City Creamery, just to name a few.

“Every year we look forward to this great event,” says Marshal Adam Stein, event chairman. “Honestly, I think my favorite part is seeing all our friends and neighbors coming out and enjoying our awesome local restaurants. We are also looking forward to over 21 breweries participating.”

This years’ Taste of Cave Creek will feature a new element to the food, participating chefs and butchers will face off in a Head to Tail cook off. Cave Creek is home to some of Arizona’s most talented chefs and high quality meat markets. Our local chefs and butchers take pride in the relationships they share with their ranchers and fishermen and each will be choosing an animal to feature. At the Taste of Cave Creek our chefs will be cooking and serving up plates inspired by their selection. Come out and see how the chefs prepare their dishes right before your eyes! Our winner will be judged by top local food celebrities. The goal of this year’s added feature is to highlight and honor our local ranches and fishermen and utilize the whole animal. From Lamb to salmon and pigs to deer, this year’s Taste of Cave Creek is an event you will not want to miss!
