We’re looking forward to having you join us for the Buellton Wine & Chili Festival next weekend, September 12th at River View Park in Buellton.
As you are aware, our local restaurants have had a very difficult time staffing their establishments and this has made it extremely difficult securing chili entries for our event. We know they need all hands on deck at their restaurants and aren’t able to provide additional staff to work off property for the event also. With that being said, we have had to remove the chili cook-off competition from this year’s event and carry on without that component.
We still have a great line up of wineries, breweries, even spirits, along with retail vendors, live music, food trucks, and lawn games. We promise we will still have a great event planned and are looking forward to welcoming you back. We strive to give our ticket buyers the best experience possible and apologize that we’ve had to make this difficult decision.
We’re expecting a beautiful day and River View Park offers a great setting for this event. Looking forward to seeing you next Sunday, September 12th.
