Every summer, the Salinas Valley Wine & Food Festival brings a delicious selection of eats and varietals to the adorable old town in Monterey County. In addition to the award-winning wines, local craft brews, and dishes from acclaimed chefs, the event will also feature live music. Tasting events will take place all over Salinas City Center, creating a hotbed of unparalleled access to the variety and majesty of the local wining and dining scene. Tickets for the event are $55 when bought before July 31st, and $85 after. For ten dollars extra, you can come to the festival an hour before the rest of the guests to get first bites. Worth it? We think so.
