Tour de Fork fundraiser returns to Victoria Gardens next week

Tour de Fork 2015The Tour de Fork is returning for a third “tine” to Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga. The fundraising event is set for 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday (June 11) along the center’s South Mainstreet.

I’ve been able to attend both previous events and have enjoyed myself immensely. The 21-and-older event showcases restaurants located both at Victoria Gardens and in the surrounding area.

Past events have also offered sneak peeks at soon-to-open eateries, with Slater’s 50/50, [N7] Creamery and No Clue Craft Brewery all having previewed at the event.

New this year is Blaze Pizza, which happens to be opening at Victoria Gardens the same day.

Tickets, which include unlimited restaurant tastings and five beverage samples, are available now.

Stop by the Rancho Cucamonga Cultural Center box office, 12505 Cultural Center Drive, to pick up tickets for $40, or purchase online for $42 from the Victoria Gardens website.

Tickets will go up to $50 next week.

One of my favorite things about this event is that 100% of ticket sales benefit charity. This year’s charity partners are the Rancho Cucamonga Community and Arts Foundation and the Rancho Cucamonga Library Foundation.
