The Taste of Julian will offer participants the opportunity to sample local specialties such as appetizers, entrees, desserts and libations from the finest establishments in Julian. In between delicious culinary creations and selections from local wineries and breweries, this year again participants will enjoy an Art Walk featuring original artwork by talents, local and regional artists in conjunction with the Julian Art Guild. The artists will be demonstrating their skills and work at most of the participating restaurants/wineries and include woodcarving, quilting, photography, jewelry, weaving, and paintings.

This year we are offering Transit Van Shuttle service. For only $8 a participant can ride around to all the locations up and down Main Street, out to Menghini and Jenkins Winery and down to Wynola.
