Foodie Fridays, Menifee’s Culinary Epicenter, Returns for 2024

Mark your calendars because the region’s favorite food-centric experience is back in Menifee – Foodie Fridays! This mouth-watering event will begin in March and runs through October, taking place on the first Friday of each month at Mt. San Jacinto College’s Menifee Campus (28237 La Piedra Rd.) from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. (Summer hours for July – September begin at 6 p.m.). This event is presented by Made Local, in “flavorship” with the City of Menifee and Mt. San Jacinto College.

Foodie Fridays is more than just a food event. It serves as an incubator for small businesses to gauge the community’s interest in their unique offerings and help them build a following. Initially launched in 2022 as part of Menifee’s Restaurant Week, this event has hosted over 60 food vendors, serving a wide variety of unique and popular bites, meals, and treats from diverse culinary backgrounds. While savoring delicious food, guests can also browse and shop from curated local businesses, selling craft, handmade, boutique, and various retail items. The cherry on top? Family-friendly local entertainment and activities for everyone of all ages.

As Menifee continues to diversify its business community with unique offerings, Foodie Fridays expands the small business community within the region. Its central mission is to cultivate businesses and create a space that engages with the public, leading to future storefront or expansion opportunities within Menifee. This event also provides nightlife entertainment and tourism opportunities, making it the perfect spot to hang out with friends, family, and neighbors while supporting your favorite local and regional businesses.
