Great Taste Friday at the Inland Empire Auto Show

The Inland Empire Auto Show is this weekend (August 27 to 29) at the Ontario Convention Center.

One of the events-within-an-event is Great Taste Friday, where you’ll be able to taste free food samples from over 30 of the Inland Empire’s best restaurants.

The organizers say you’ll be able to sample from “Argentina to Zimbabwe.”

A flier for the event says the first 1,000 attendees will receive a free wine glass.

The good news is that the food fest is included with your admission ($7; $5 for seniors and military; kids under 12 are free) to the auto show.

Even better, a limited number of complementary tickets are available at the following Ontario Auto Center dealers:

Savage BMW
Jeep-Chrysler-Dodge of Ontario
Citrus Motors
Romero Hyundai
Romero Mazda
Crown Lexus
Mini of Ontario
Empire Nissan
Ontario Mitsubishi
Crown Scion
Subaru of Ontario
Crown Toyota
Ontario VW
Ontario Volvo

So, if you play your cards right, you could check out the latest in new cars, get a free wine glass and sample some of the finest food the I.E. has to offer…all for free!

The Ontario Convention Center is at 2000 E. Convention Center Way. Friday’s hours for the Inland Empire Auto Show are noon to 9 p.m.
