Taste of San Joaquin

Sweet sounds and spicy flavors permeate the annual Taste of San Joaquin, which attracts local merchants and bands for a cook-off under the summer sun. During the fest, the Way Out West BBQ Championship features smoky creations from stars of TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters and Stockton’s Smokin’ Yankees, three-time winners of the Taste’s People’s Choice award. Patrons can sample pork ribs, baked potatoes, and beef brisket off the grill, or pair their samples with 2-ounce portions of savory and scorching chili from the new chili cook-off. Check out the gourmet food trucks, wine tastings, and activities like a classic car show. Kids can play in the activity area with face paint and crafts, while live bands cover classics that range from Beatles hits to John Cage’s 4’33”. Proceeds from the event go to stimulate the local economy and support nonprofits.
