From its humble beginnings in 1994 at the historic Pierpont Inn in Ventura to its beachside home at the Mandalay Beach Resort in Oxnard (2001 - 2006) to the present surrounds of the beautiful and spacious California State University’s Channel Islands campus in Camarillo, the Casa Pacifica Angels Wine & Food Festival has become the premiere wine and food event in Ventura County.
Voted BEST Cultural Event in Ventura County in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011, the Casa Pacifica Angels Wine & Food Festival Festival showcases the culinary creations of the area’s finest restaurants and caterers from Santa Barbara to the Conejo Valley and award-winning wineries and vineyards from throughout California’s rich wine-producing regions as well as many marvelous micro-breweries.
The Casa Pacifica Angels Wine & Food Festival is all inclusive; patrons may sample and sip as many delectable delights and beverages as they desire as often as they wish. The day also features continuous live entertainment and the largest silent auction in Ventura County. Last year there were in excess of 4,000 people in attendance and this year we expect more food & wine enthusiasts.
All proceeds from the Wine & Food Festival benefit Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families, which provides hope and help for abused, neglected, or at-risk children and families in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. Last year the Festival raised over $310,000 towards the $2.6 million Casa Pacifica needed to raise in private donations. Each year, as part of its public/private partnership, Casa Pacifica must raise 10-12% of its budget to fill the gap between what governmental funding it receives and the actual cost of providing its wide variety of high quality programs and services to the most vulnerable children in our communities and their families.
