Casa Pacifica Wine, Food & Brew Festival
The 24th Annual Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food, & Brew Festival took place on Sunday, June 4, at the beautiful California State University Channel Islands campus in Camarillo. Voted “Best Charity Event” and “Best Food & Drink Festival” of Ventura County five years in a row, this event lets guests enjoy gourmet food, award-winning wines, and craft brews from local breweries.
This year’s entertainment included live music, an incredible silent auction, and The Yummies Culinary Competition, an action-packed culinary showdown involving Ventura County’s top restaurants and chefs. The amazing music featured Ventura County’s favorite D.J., Bruce Barios, Wes Quave Live, Chris Lomeli, Benise’s Band of Gypsies, and Sound Effect. Participating exhibitors included Alma Rosa Winery & Vine-yards, Merlin’s Kitchen, Nothing Bundt Cakes, University Village Thousand Oaks, Deliteful Restaurant & Bar, Luna Grill, and more.
All proceeds benefit Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families, which provides hope and help for abused, neglected, or at-risk children and their families in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
