Santa Barbara Art and Wine Tour
May is the best month for a Santa Barbara wine tour. The Santa Ynez Mountains are still a verdant green, the weather is nice and there are lots of special events happening.
There is an interesting event happening in town on Thursday May 26: the annual Downtown Art & Wine Tour, hosted by Santa Barbara Downtown Organization. The $55.00 self-guided tour includes urban wine tour venues where the participants are free to drop in, wine glass in hand, to enjoy great wine and delicious treats at their leisure, from the hours of 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.
This year, the tour will feature venues south of Carrillo St. and finish up with a big final bash at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, where there will be live music, a raffle and silent auction–and even more food and wine, for those still standing more of less steadily.
Tickets are available from May 2nd at the Arlington Theater Box Office, the Downtown Organization Box Office at 27B East De La Guerra St. and at Paseo Nuevo Guests Services. There are a limited number of tickets and they must be purchased in advance. Check-in starts at 5:15 p.m. at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.
All proceeds raised by the event will go to the 59th Annual Downtown Holiday Parade.
