Now’s your chance to taste the Pomona Valley


It’s two, two, two events in one as the Taste of the Pomona Valley and Pomona Mayor Elliott Rothman’s State of the City address have been combined into one event.

The combined event is set for Monday, April 9, with the State of the City address beginning at 4:30 p.m., followed by the Taste of the Pomona Valley from 5 to 8 p.m., at the Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center, 601 W. McKinley Ave.

The Taste offers a variety of food and wines from local restaurants, exhibitors from around the Inland Valley, live entertainment, and opportunity drawings for gift packages. Tickets for the drawings will be $5 each, or $20 for an arm’s length of tickets.

Tickets for the event are $40 in advance (or $45 at the door) and available from the Pomona Chamber of Commerce.

For more information about tickets, booth opportunities or sponsorships, contact the Chamber office at 909-622-1256, or any Chamber of Commerce board member or Ambassador.
