If you are a “foodie” and love central coast wines this event can’t be missed! The 4th weekend of September, Savor the Central Coast is Sunset Magazine’s invention that is 3 years strong. This is a spectacular 3 days event that attracts visitors worldwide.
Hosted by the small obscure town of Santa Margarita (2 blocks long and boasting a population of 2,700 permanent residents). Founded in 1774, Mission San Luis Obispo chose the Santa Margarita Valley for the site of their Mission Asistencia, an outlying farm. It was established as a town in 1889.
Sip more than 200 wines. Indulge in culinary bites from over 30 local chefs. Meet Winemakers, Brew masters, and Artisans. This year Celebrity Chef Michael Voltaggio headlines the cooking showcase. Unlimited food and wine sampling, unlimited rides on the historic steam engine train, plus live entertainment…one can’t go wrong by attending this event. You never pay for anything once you enter the Event.
Yes, the weather is traditionally hot! Wear cool clothes, bring water, and a hat. Wear comfortable shoes because it’s a schlep from the parking area to the event, but that’s ok because you will be staying at the Event for a long while. No pets and No Smoking. You must be 21 years of age or older to attend.
If you haven’t been before, you must go. Plus, every year is different.
Morro Bay is 25 minutes to the West, where it is cool because of our wonderful ocean breezes! You will enjoy our weather in the evenings and the mornings. Hear the seals and watch the fishing boats.
