Taste of Surprise is brought to you by the following sponsors!

So what are we all about...

Mark your calendars and get out your stretchy pants! Showcasing some the West Valley's best restaurants and eateries, the Taste of Surprise is a fundraising event organized by the Rotary Club of Surprise Community Foundation to support projects and charitable services in the local community and around the world! The Taste of Surprise features dozens of food, beer, wine, and spirit vendors, including revered local culinary talents from award-winning restaurants and local emerging chefs. We provide a truly unique experience for valley residents!

In 2017, the Taste of Surprise featured over 50 local restaurants, beer, wine, and spirit vendors with over 1,100 in attendance! Overall, we raised over $40,000 for 5 local charity organizations! The event featured over 10 live performances, headlined by none other than American Idol contestant Melinda Doolittle, and an exclusive Mardi Gras themed VIP area with a private menu! To say the least, it was an amazing night for the community!

So What about 2018? We need details…

While we are still in the planning phase, 2018 promises to be even bigger and better. With new restaurants, entertainment, and sponsors being announced weekly, we might just outgrow the Surprise Stadium! Just kidding… we’ve got some time before we hit that milestone!
