The Taste of Cambridge (TOC), founded by the Cambridge License Advisory Board (CLAB), is produced by dedicated CLAB volunteers. CLAB works year-round to prevent underage drinking and to educate and support liquor license holders in their efforts to prohibit sales to minors. The TOC, in addition to being an extraordinary gastronomic experience, is also a charitable event! Our participating restaurants, sponsors, and volunteers present the best “Taste of” event to provide financial support to our beneficiaries!
