"If you get a chance to get..." Festivals Tip by bruingirl

Festivals, Solvang: 2 reviews and 2 photos


Favorite thing: If you get a chance to get tickets to the Santa Barbara Vintners' Festival in April, you should definitely go! It's held every year at the Firestone winery, just minutes north of Solvang. About 50+ local restaurants and 50+ wineries are there. It's about a 4-5 hour event that runs for two days. You get to sample all the different wines and foods while listening to a live band playing. The tickets are really hard to come by, but if you can, this is one event you DON'T want to miss out on! US$65/person. For more info., check out

Fondest memory: They have these little multiple person bikes that you can rent by the hour. I remember riding them with my family as a kid and having a blast. It's really a great way to see the town, instead of driving or walking.
