Event Information

A 31 Day Culinary Adventure

Cuisine. Dig into local cuisine at area restaurants offering special seasonal menus, tasting events and winemaker dinners. Accept the "Eat Local" Challenge and learn what livin' la vida locavore is all about on guided Slow Food tours. Fine tune your home chef talents with a cooking class or collect insider tips from top chefs at weekly chef dinners. Enjoy lively family-friendly events like the Harbor & Seafood Festival, California Lemon Festival and California Avocado Festival.

Libations. Whether you're an oenophile, microbrew aficionado or spirits maven, your liquid palate is sure to be tickled and teased throughout the month. Head to wine country for the Celebration of Harvest and hit the downtown wineries during the Urban Wine Trail Weekend. Taste finely crafted regional microbrews at the Santa Barbara Beer Festival, sample premier tequilas at Blue Agave and sip on fair trade coffees from around the globe at The French Press. Take advantage of special discounts on local wines and featured tasting flights at area restaurants and you'll be saving while you sip and swirl.

Culture. Feed your mind and soul with epicurean-inspired art exhibits, poetry readings and cultural events. Meet your favorite local food writer during The Book Den's "Santa Barbara Writes About Food Series". See how produce is transformed into cutting-edge art at the Contemporary Arts Forum's Scorpio Rising pumpkin carving contest and exhibition. Learn to Tango at Café Buenos Aires while sampling Argentinean BBQ. Contemplate on the Artepicurus visuals at Artamo Gallery.
