Casa Pacifica is sad to announce that for the first time in 27 years, the Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food & Brew Festival – the premier wine, food and brew event in Ventura County – will not be held due to the COVID-19 pandemic and concerns for the health and safety of our community. Along with the Festival, its companion intimate event – The Yummie Top Chef Dinner – will not take place as well.
This event has been indebted to the amazing, talented, and generous restaurants, bakeries, caterers, wineries, breweries, specialty shops – all the wonderful and integral-to-the-day exhibitors, along with our dedicated sponsors and donors, selfless volunteers, incredible entertainers, and eager fun-loving attendees who make the Festival the wonderful and unforgettable experience it is each year. With their kindness, enthusiasm, and most of all passion for the cause the Festival benefits – Casa Pacifica – 100% of the day’s proceeds raise significant and essential operating funding to support the vital programs and services that bringing life-changing healing to the children, young adults, and families Casa Pacifica serves. We are grateful to our sponsors, many of whom have chosen to shift their sponsorship funds to vitally needed operating support as Casa Pacifica addresses this difficult time.
Our exhibitors have been there for us for more than a quarter century, and now we ask that the community support them – our valued friends – during this difficult COVID-19 crisis. Visit our Festival website at www.cpwinefoodbrewfest.com to find a listing of our terrific vendors, who you can return the favor of ensuring a great Festival each year, through a take-out order, or two, or ten.
Carrie Hughes, Casa Pacifica’s Chief Development Officer explains, “It was such a hard decision to cancel the Festival this year. But with the financial hardships placed on our friends – the restaurants, bakeries, wineries, breweries and all the exhibitors due to the COVID-19 “Social Distancing” and “Safer at Home” restrictions, as well as the general safety and wellbeing of our attendees – it was just the right thing to do. We are grateful for all our special Wine, Food & Brew Festival family and pray they all stay safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s event!” The 2021 Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food & Brew Festival will take place on Sunday, June 6th, and the Yummie Top Chef Dinner on Friday, June 4th, both at CSUCI.
