Ventura Winter Wine Walk in Ventura, CA. Recommended by: Edible Ojai & Ventura County.
Billed as the “World’s Largest Wine Walk”, the event takes place in the seaside community of Ventura and features entertainment, holiday lighting and “snowfall.”

Sponsored by Chicago’s own Louis Glunz Beer and in support of Lincoln Park Zoo, the annual BrewLights features a dozen local craft, seasonal and international beers on tap throughout the zoo during ZooLights. Food will be available for purchase and Santa is promised a visit.
Christmas in the Adobes in Monterey, CA. Recommended by: Edible Monterey Bay.
Travel back to the 18th century as you tour 20 historic buildings all decked out in period holiday finery in downtown Monterey.
