2018 Ventura County Wine and Food Experience

We’re so lucky to live here in Ventura County. Sunny skies greet us most of the year. The Pacific Ocean acts as our playground. And several amazingly talented chefs live and work in the area. It’s no wonder that the 2018 Ventura County Wine and Food Experience is one of the top events of the year!

The 2018 Ventura County Wine and Food Experience takes place at the Camarillo Hangar on Sat, Nov 10th. Enjoy wine and beer tastings, food samples & more.

What: 2018 Ventura County Wine and Food Experience

2018 Ventura County Wine and Food Experience

This year’s celebrity chef at the 2018 Ventura County Wine and Food Experience is Chicago-based Graham Elliott. This four-star, double Michelin star, award-winning chef owns and operates several restaurants around the world. But you probably know him best as a celebrity judge on the “MasterChef”, “MasterChef Jr”, and “Top Chef” TV shows. He’s not the only talent at this festival, though. Representatives from more than 30 local area restaurants show off their skills with sumptuous food tastings. And, to top it all off, guests enjoy samplings of fabulous local wines and craft beers as well.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to cook or find out more about fine wine, you’re in luck. Two wine seminars and a cooking demonstration will be performed at the Camarillo Hangar throughout the afternoon. Seating is only available on a first come-first served basis. Get there early so you don’t miss a thing.

As you can imagine, the 2018 Ventura County Wine and Food Experience enforces a “21 and over only” restriction. No children (even in strollers or carriers) or pets (other than official service animals) will be allowed on the premises.

2018 Ventura County Wine and Food Experience Tickets

Why tell you now about an event that takes place in two months? Because it tends to sell out pretty quickly. If you want to go, you need to make plans right now. Besides, ticket prices go up the closer we get to the event. Take advantage of the best-priced deals right now. Attendees must choose one of three packages available: Grand Tasting, VIP Grand Tasting, and the Chef’s Package.

The VIP Grand Tasting sells for $80 ($115 at the door) and includes everything in the Grand Tasting package as well as entry into the VIP area and restrooms and early entrance into the event (12 pm, no waiting). In the VIP area, guests dine on specially made hors-d’oeuvres and premium wine. For $160 per person (no discounts), purchase the Chef’s Package. It includes everything in the VIP Grand Tasting package as well as a personal meet-and-greet with Graham Elliott at 11 am. To purchase tickets, simply visit the VC Wine & Food Experience website here. All available Chef’s Packages for sale are almost gone. So, you’d better act now!

Ventura County Greek Festival 2018

This weekend’s Ventura County Greek Festival 2018 marks its 40th year in Ventura County. St Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church hosts this fun community event each year to honor the Greek history of its patrons. In its ongoing effort to evolve into as all-inclusive of an event as possible, festival organizers implemented a few new items this year. For example, in past years, the restaurant, mezethes (appetizers), and calamari areas were all set up in their own individual booths. This year, they combine into one giant area known as Yia Yia’s Kitchen. In addition to Greek favorites lamb, chicken, and saganaki, Yia Yia’s offers vegetarian selections for the non-meat-eating crowd. Yia Yia’s now accepts credit cards. Yes, Festival Bucks will still be available for use around the festival (except vendor booths). You can use your credit card to purchase these at Yia Yia’s as well.

Live music and dance performances are scheduled throughout the entire three-day festival. Commemorative T-shirts will also be available for sale. Let everyone know what great fun you’re having from inside the Selfie Zone. Your $5 admission includes one free entry into the $3000 raffle. Free parking is available at the Camarillo Airport Museum as well as the parking area located to the south of the Camarillo Flight Instruction building. All parking areas will be clearly marked for you.

Come visit the Ventura County Greek Festival 2018 anytime this weekend. It’s pure fun that the entire family can enjoy. Opa!

On the first Saturday of every month, the EAA Chapter 723 offers free plane rides for Camarillo kids directly from Camarillo Airport.  Just last year, almost 66,000 young “Eagles” were flown over local neighborhoods across the country absolutely free courtesy of the EAA.  To date, more than 1,900,000 have taken flight since the program first started up back in 1992.  This is your child’s chance to get an up close look at what it takes to pilot a plane, including pre-flight safety checks of the exterior and interior of the plane, reviewing aeronautical charts and an explanation of the instrument panel.

Each one of the free plane rides for Camarillo kids lasts anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes.  Your child may even be allowed to take the controls while in flight…with the pilot’s close supervision, of course.  Once they arrive back on the ground, the pilot will be more than happy to answer all your child’s questions, including what type of plane they are flying and the rules of flying in general.  Each child participating in the program will receive their very own logbook with an activation code that gives them free access to an EAA Student Membership.

All interested parties must pre-register online at the EAA Chapter 723 website.  If you miss tomorrow’s free plane rides for Camarillo kids, the next one will be available on February 7th.  Let your child experience something truly unique.  Register them for a free plane ride today!
