Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018

Halloween officially takes place in 16 days. That means trick-or-treating happens on a school night (Wednesday, this year). Ventura officials believe it’s slightly inhumane to make kids or parents wait that long. Celebrate Halloween with more treats and fewer tricks at the Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018. And it takes place on the Saturday before Halloween. So, you’ll have a day to recover from your candy hangover before the kids head back to school and you go back to work.

Guests enjoy holiday-themed arts and crafts, carnival games, jump houses, a costume contest, and even a pirate ship.

For the daredevils, enter the haunted house at your own risk. Watch or join the pie-eating contest. When you get hungry, visit one of the food trucks on-site. Several raffles and a silent auction offer amazing prizes. And admission is absolutely free (raffle tickets will cost you, though).

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!

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.

FOOD Share

Since 2011, the Ventura Art & Street Painting Festival has raised more than $32,000 for FOOD Share. Believe it or not, one in six people living in Ventura County experience food insecurity on a regular basis. This includes working families that don’t make enough to put dinner on the table every night. FOOD Share helps bridge this gap to ensure healthy food goes where it is needed most. They do so through programs such as Senior Kits (for the elderly), FOOD Share & Friends Mobile Pantry (bringing food to areas that don’t have ready access to a brick-and-mortar food bank), and the Kids’ Farmers Market (providing nutrition education and fresh produce to children). If you’d like to donate, please visit FOOD Share’s website here to set up a one-time or monthly recurring donation.

Of course, if you happen to own a boat moored in the dock, sit out on deck and wait for the concert to come to you. No waiting. No hassle. And you never have to think about where you parked!

Enjoy some shopping. Then, grab a bite to eat. Several restaurants in the village offer waterfront seating, perfect for listening to the concert while dining al fresco. Our beautiful Southern California weather usually means sunny skies with cooler temperatures throughout September. Just make sure you apply sunscreen and wear a hat to help block those pesky UV rays.
