Major sponsor for the 2016 Taste of Davis is Pacific Gas & Electric Co. Super sponsors supporting the event are the Davis Enterprise, Davis Downtown (formerly know as DDBA), and A Grand Affair.
Long-time Co-Chair of the event, Lea Rosenberg, said: “This is a fun and popular event in Davis. Folks love to sample the variety of foods, wines and beers, but it’s also one of the great social events of the season. Folks enjoy the opportunity to chat with friends and neighbors, and to see and be seen.”
Every year the Davis Odd Fellows designate a beneficiary for some of the proceeds of this event. The Elderly Nutrition Program will be the beneficiary this year.
