Diversitastic! Dining Experience

Save your seat for this all-inclusive experience!

A chance to immerse yourself into the exploration of tastes, sights, sounds and mindsets of another part of the world.

Each month (Jan – October*) there is a Diversitastic! Dining Experience featuring a different country/culture. The experience at a locally-owned restaurant/food vendor, includes an authentical multi-course meal, from appetizer to dessert, and a program of music and/or dance, as well as cultural and chef presentations and maybe a fun culturally-specific game with prizes. You get a full “taste” of the culture.

*In June there are four Culinary Fusion Contest dinners that feature seven chefs each night competing to create the best fusion dish, but they require a separate ticket.
