The 28th Annual Ojai Wine Festival coming June 8 to Lake Casitas in Ventura County, California

Time is growing short to register for the twenty-eighth annual Ojai Wine Festival, taking

place Sunday, June 8, 2014 from 12:00 to 4:00 pm on the scenic shores of Lake Casitas,

Ojai, California.  Over 60 wineries and 250 wines take the headline spot for the afternoon.

From its humble beginnings in 1987 the event has grown into a leading regional event

attracting nearly 5000 people from throughout the Central Coast and Southern California.

The annual event is a major fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Ojai West Foundation -

a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps fund many humanitarian and community

projects, including the environmental science based educational Lake Casitas Boat Tours

for public schools.

 “You can’t beat the combination of fantastic wine, beer, food, live music,

dancing and fun in such a beautiful shady setting on the shores of Lake Casitas.” boasted

Wine Festival Executive Director, Angela May. “Our selection of wineries and breweries

is looking impressive for this year.  Tickets are limited and we advise buying tickets

online now.”

Select from ten of Ojai’s best restaurants to buy a delicious meal. Guests may dine and

drink wine on tables throughout the site or picnic on a grassy knoll overlooking the stage

and Lake Casitas.
