The Eighth Annual Taste of the Eastside returns on April 29th to the charming Los Angeles River Center and Gardens, its home for the past three years.

TOTE, as the event is affectionately known, celebrates good food and music at a stunning venue - a mission-style villa with tiled patios, fountains, and lush landscaping with meandering pathways.

The event showcases the culinary evolution of the Eastside that has been part of the recent development of the hip neighborhoods of Silverlake, Los Feliz, Atwater Village, Echo Park, Downtown, Highland Park, Eagle Rock and eyond.Representing the diversity of the current food scene will be over 30 vendors, both newcomers and returning establishments.

They include Little Dom’s, Diablo Taco, Silverlake’s hidden gem Fat Dragon, French neighborhood newcomer Melody, Eagle Rock’s New American Red Herring, Atwater’s Italian All’Acqua, the savory and fresh Gigi’s Bakery, and for dessert, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream and McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams.

Beverages include flights from boutique wine merchants like Silver Lake Wines, signature cocktails from Mohawk Bend and Greenbar Craft Distillery, and beer pours from Eagle Rock Brewing, El Segundo Brewing Co. and Strand Brewing Co.

Music will be provided by KCRW DJs Raul Campos, Anthony Valadez and Garth Trinidad, and live music by Cousin Junebug, The Morning Yells and others.

Added to this year’s event is a local designer section that includes Dean Leather Accessories, Devon Leigh Jewelry and Sage LA Candles and Oils showcasing their creations and donating 25 percent of their proceeds to TOTE.

TOTE began as an effort by a group of parents to raise money for Rose Scharlin Cooperative Nursery School, LA’s oldest co-op for kids. The school still remains the primary beneficiary and organizer of TOTE, but other non-profits The Pablove Foundation, and FOLAR, Friends of the LA River are now also benecficiaries.
