Things to Do in Ventura County

Ventura Brew Fest 2019

Just last month, thousands of folks gathered in our fair city for the Boots & Brews Country Music Festival. The month before that, we enjoyed Ventura Taste 2019, a culinary journey through the finest restaurants and most talented chefs we call our own in Ventura. As you can see, we love our beer, food, and music in Southern California. A brand new festival starts up later this month, the Ventura Brew Fest 2019. And it includes food and music along with that tasty beverage, too.

Sample beer from local brewers, listen to live music, do a bit of shopping and enjoy great food at the very first Ventura Brew Fest 2019 on Oct 19th.

Several local breweries plan on participating by bringing their fine ales, lagers, and stouts for festival-goers to sample. 

In addition to the beer tasting, food trucks provide delicious meals for a fee. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options will be made available from many of the food vendors. Whatever your diet restrictions may be, the festival should have something for you to enjoy while you’re there. While you eat and drink, start some merrymaking with the rock, blues, and funk groups performing for the gathered crowd throughout the day. And, as if that wasn’t enough, play some fun yard games (all ages welcome). Then, get some shopping done at the local vendor booths set up.

Ticket Information

Admission to the festival itself is absolutely free. However, you must purchase tasting tickets in order to sample any of the beer on-site. Therefore, you must be at least 21 years old to participate in the tasting portion of the festival. Purchase your tasting tickets online before you come to the event. They’re available in 10 and 20 pack bundles. For $15, receive a commemorative beer stein and 10 tasting tickets. Pay $30 for 20 tickets plus the stein. If you wait until the day of the event, you pay $5 more. Save money. Buy your tickets early.

Ventura Saturday Fisherman’s Market: It’s What’s for Dinner!

Living on the Pacific Ocean coastline means that Southern Californians enjoy the freshest fish available. Since 1982, Andrea’s Seafood Restaurant has served residents and visitors to this beloved Ventura County hotspot. Their clam chowder and hand battered fish and chips made them a worldwide phenomenon. But that’s just two of the reasons Andrea’s consistently ranks #1 as Ventura’s best fresh seafood market. So, it should come as no surprise that their Ventura Saturday Fisherman’s Market brings in seafood lovers by the droves.

Every week, Andrea's Seafood Restaurant hosts the Ventura Saturday Fisherman's Market. Several local fisherman sell their fresh fish catches of the day, first come/first served, from 7 am until 10 am (or until sold out). Free parking available.

Ventura Saturday Fisherman’s Market

Search Ventura County homes for saleStarting at 7 am every Saturday morning, the ocean side of Andrea’s Seafood Restaurant becomes the Saturday Fisherman’s Market. Only the freshest caught seafood winds up here for the public to purchase. Several local fishermen set up booths filled with fresh fish, clams, mussels, crab, and more. Whatever seafood you crave for your Saturday evening meal with the family is on display here.

Some of the fish up for grabs most Saturdays includes sea bass, tuna, halibut, rockfish, and even sea cucumbers. Since the selection depends solely on what is freshly caught, it varies from week to week. People from all over Ventura and Los Angeles Counties make the trek to Ventura harbor every Saturday for this market in particular. Most of it tends to sell out before the market ends. So, we suggest getting there as early as possible.

Admission to the market is absolutely free. So is the parking. The market operates on a first come/first served basis. Once the fish runs out, you’ll be out of luck. However, Andrea’s operates its fish market inside the restaurant every single day. If you miss out on their Saturday Fisherman’s Market, go inside Andrea’s to pick up your fresh seafood. The interior market stays open from 11 am to 5 pm Sunday through Thursday and 11 am to 6 pm every Friday and Saturday.
