Santa Barbara Wine + Food Festival

The region's premier wine and food festival returns Saturday, June 29 with another epic line up of wineries and food purveyors.

Sip and savor 100+ of the Central Coast's best wineries and culinary delights while enjoying the Museum's beautiful, creekside setting under majestic redwoods and oak trees.
