    Los Olivos: Flavorful Fall Festivity

    Wend your way through the Santa Ynez Valley for a fall-tastic day in one of wine country's most beautiful villages.

    LOS OLIVOS DAY IN THE COUNTRY... does each year. The town-wide celebration covers a lot of fronts, from a pancake breakfast to a vintage tractor display to a parade to a bevy of arts & crafts booths, but what it does, most of all, is pay homage to a cool wine country community and all that it offers. That does for sure mean a host of sip-spotlighted opportunities, but it isn't all about the wine, as craft brews, too, are a big deal in the region (so look for a beer garden). It's a bustling, lots-to-do time to call upon the walkable town, so if you want to be there when it is in its full fall fizzy glory, with plenty of doings going on, then Saturday, Oct. 15 is your day. But if you don't make the festival on the 15th, worry not; the mists will not envelop lovely Los Olivos, meaning your next chance to visit it is pretty much whenever you choose.
