California Wine Festival in Carlsbad

June 28 and 29, 2024


The 1st day of summer is June 20, and the California Wine Festival in Carlsbad will follow soon after.


If you are a wine lover and foodie it’s a great opportunity to taste some fine wines and enjoy some special appetizers.


The California Wine Festival will take place Friday and Saturday, June 28 and 29, at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad. The California Wine Festival is a series, with similar events held in Dana Point (this past April 19 and 20), Santa Barbara (July 19 and 20), and Huntington Beach (November 8 and 9).

The Wine Festival features rare and reserve vintages, as well as wines from some of California’s most popular wineries.


We attended a food and wine event at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort a number of years ago and the setting is beautiful. What a fun way to start off your summer with wine, food and luxurious ambiance, plus live music, great food, ocean views and coastal breezes. Hopefully our June Gloom will abate, but don’t let it dampen your spirits!


On Friday evening you can enjoy the Sunset Rare and Reserve Wine Tasting at The Gardens from 6:30 – 9 pm. On Saturday you can enjoy the Beachside Wine Festival on the Heron Lawn from 1 – 4 pm (VIPS begin at noon).

Of course if there’s wine you should also have food to accompany it. Thus, you’ll find an impressive selection of food vendors from Carlsbad and nearby at both events. Here’s a complete list of food purveyors.


You can buy tickets here for either event or both, including the VIP Pavilion. Tickets range from $65 to $195 plus tax. It’s getting late so don’t wait; some tickets are expected to sell out.


The Park Hyatt Aviara Resort is off Aviara Parkway, at 7100 Aviara Resort Drive, Carlsbad 92011. You can expect crowds so plan to arrive early as it may take some time to get into the resort and park.

Jeff Dowler, CRS I am sure many would enjoy this event but I do not drink so it would be a waste for me although I do love to eat

No doubt there are plenty of beverages for those who don't drink but simply want to enjoy the festival and some good food.

Jeff, I would definitely attend if it was closer.  But, just got back to room with a glass of Malbec from Mendoza and was only $10.   Got to love it!

Hi Jeff- California and wine festivals seem to go together. I'd imagine many lovers of the grape can't wait to attend.

The last wine festival we attended was a mob scene, Kathy Streib and I expect there will be lots of wine lovers there!

Jeff Dowler, CRS  I would love to participate in these festivities, problem is I would need to stay over for two nights with all the tasting:)Endre

Jeff Dowler, CRS

You could make it a long weekend Endre Barath, Jr. so you could enjoy all the tastings!

Or just enjoy some good wine at home!

Jeff Dowler, CRS   We are at a stage of life where that carries no interest as I don't drink and my wife gets silly after half a glass.

Hi Jeff... this must be a very, very popular festival. I'd go for the food but I'd have to skip the wine... California wines do not agree with me, unfortunately.

Jun 05, 2024 12:08 PM
Jeff Dowler, CRS

I suspect it would still be pretty enjoyable Nina Hollander, Broker . We've not been to this particular festival but went to another similar event at that hotel a few years ago and it was great fun, but really crowded.

Hello Jeff,  you named some of my ole stomping grounds.  I lived on a sail boat in Dana point before the break water was built...much to surfers displeasure.  I believe it was 'Quiet Cannon' on the cliff over looking the Marina?  Good times in a life long long ago.  m

Thanks for stopping by Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho I'm glad this brought back nice memories. Living on a sail boat must have been interesting! I like Dana Point, especially the marina area but haven't spent much time there.
