"Taste of the Holidays" began in 1993, after a presentation to our Rotary Club by Mr. Phil Ricord, who was then manager of the Foodworks Culinary Center in Arcata. The concept of showcasing local specialty food and beverage producers fit nicely with Rotary International's focus on Vocations, and provided our newly formed Rotary Club with a much needed signature fundraiser.
The first "Taste of the Holidays" was actually held in the warehouse of the FoodWorks Culinary Center. The following year, since the warehouse was chock-full of product, the event was moved to the historic Jacoby's Storehouse, which had recently been beautifully restored in downtown Arcata. After many enjoyable years at the Storehouse, the event was moved to the new Arcata Community Center in 2002, and we continue to enjoy success as "the first Holiday party of the year"
