Inland Empire Events | 2014 Tour de Fork





Hi Friends & Neighbors –

I’m excited that Victoria Gardens has announced a new opportunity for local food lovers to enjoy the best of Rancho Cucamonga.  The shopping center will hold its second annual Tour De Fork event on Thursday, June 26 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm on South Mainstreet. A special culinary event, Tour De Fork provides guests the opportunity to sample dishes and drinks from dining destinations within the Victoria Gardens shopping center and throughout the City of Rancho Cucamonga.

“Last year’s inaugural Tour De Fork event was an overwhelming success,” explains Melina Ferraez, Director of Marketing for Victoria Gardens. “We are thrilled to bring this unique event to our shoppers again for 2014, and to be able to introduce guests to some fantastic local restaurants, breweries and wineries that they may have never experienced before.  Tickets to last year’s Tour De Fork event completely sold out.”

This year’s Tour De Fork event will benefit three local charities, including Rancho Cucamonga Community & Arts FoundationRancho Cucamonga Library Foundation and Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care & Services.  100 percent of the event proceeds will go directly to these organizations.

I was invited to attend last year’s premiere event and it was DELICIOUS! I’m excited that Victoria Gardens has decided to bring this event back.  You can check out yummy pics and reviews in our blog post.
