Welcome

Welcome to Taste of Carmel, a sampling of the bohemian culture which was first found in and around Carmel-by-the-Sea, California in the early 1900’s and which is very much alive today. Taste of Carmel will be your gateway to exploring a quaint coastal village with world-class dining and top-rated wines while uncovering your own bohemian side.

Over a long weekend, Taste of Carmel features local food and wine; live music; outdoor activities; culinary education and experiences; a silent auction showcasing area restaurants, inns and boutique goods; all set in an ancient forest near a white sand beach.
