If necessity is the mother of invention, the Oakdale Chamber of Commerce, along with local businesses, have proven that if there’s a will, there’s a way.
Especially with the upcoming Taste of Oakdale event, scheduled for Thursday, May 27 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., which will be a traveling food event.
Pre-COVID-19, the Taste of Oakdale brought local restaurants into one space as a way to reintroduce or introduce local eateries to the community. With COVID-19 restrictions, the Chamber staff had to think of a new way to achieve the same benefit and came up with a traveling option.
Nine businesses are listed as participating in this year’s event, including:
· Cocina Michoacana
· Cottonwood Café
· Firenze Ristorante
· Kona Ice Ripon
· Oakdale Fit Nutrition
· Roberts Ferry Gourmet
· Stevie’s Pizzeria
· VIP nutrition
Ticket holders will meet at the Oakdale Chamber of Commerce office building, receive their wristband and start their food tasting with Kona Ice, which is a traveling truck, and Firenze, which is a short walk from the Chamber offices.
Tickets are $15 in advance and can be purchased online ($25 at the door) or at the Oakdale Chamber of Commerce office, 590 N. Yosemite Ave., Oakdale.
