Lafayette Chamber Signature Community Events
Please note, due to the pandemic, our signature community events are on hold until further notice.
The Taste of Lafayette Restaurant Stroll
Another SOLD OUT Event! Thank you for joining us on Tuesday, June 22, 2021! Lafayette’s Favorite Dinner Party – The “Taste of Lafayette” Restaurant Stroll! Friends, Food & Entertainment – 20+ Participating Restaurants. The “stroll” begins when ticket holders head out at their own pace with friends to stop at any or all of the participating restaurants for sampling. Evening includes music and a raffle supporting the Lafayette Community Foundation. Learn more about the event here.
We plan to resume our downtown concerts in the summer of 2022. Please stay tuned for an update (pun intended).
The Chamber’s Lafayette Art & Wine Festival, held typically the 3rd weekend in September, is perhaps the largest weekend event in Contra Costa County. Over 85,000 visitors attend, strolling among the art and handmade crafts, sampling foods from top local restaurants, and enjoying quality wines and microbrews. Non-stop musical entertainment on four stages throughout the weekend helps spark the block party ambiance. The “Premium Wine Pavilion” offers tastes of some of the world’s finest wines including wines from our own Lamorinda Wine Growers. The event also includes three Kid Zones and a Local Artists Alley. The 2021 festival has been cancelled. Visit Official Festival Website for updates.
