The Pasadena Wine Festival returns to the LA County Arboretum and Botanic Gardens on Saturday providing the perfect opportunity and ambience to remind us that we do live in paradise (not London, as the weather may suggest).
The festival is not just about wine, taking full advantage of the Arboretum's acreage and natural beauty. Bocce ball, ultimate frisbee and horseshoes are among the activities to keep you buzzing through the afternoon with live jazz and salsa into the evening and under the stars. Top Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles, and Santa Barbara wineries will be complemented by a Old World selections as well as tastings from Down Under.
There will be food and we're talking trucks, not just cheese and crackers. World Fare, Crepe'n Around, Grilled Cheese, Border Grill and Sprinkles are among the trucks expected on site.
Your regularly scheduled 72-and-sunny weather returns later this week and by Saturday it should be sunny, mid 80s. Likely hotter in Arcadia so bring sunscreen and lawn chairs, dress appropriately, and let us know what great wines you discover.
Pasadena Wine Festival takes place Saturday October 9 from 2pm-10pm at the LA Arboretum, 301 N Baldwin Ave, Arcadia, 91007. Ages 21+ only. Tickets -- $28 - $85 (VIP) -- are available online through Friday or Saturday at the gate. Proceeds benefit the California Philharmonic and L.A. County Arboretum Foundation.
