Labor Day Weekend 2013

Labor Day Weekend 2013

This beautiful weather in Santa Barbara allows for lots of fun activities in the Santa Barbara area this Labor Day Weekend! The Grubb Campbell Real Estate Group has comprised a list of events and entertainment to attend if you are still configuring your Labor Day plans.

  • The fourth annual Santa Barbara Tequila Harvest Festival is this Saturday, August 31st. Join many tequila lovers at Elings Park to experience premier tequila tasting and an afternoon of fun! You can purchase tickets and read more about this fantastic event at


  • If you are feeling like a fun getaway, head down the 101 to LA’s “The Taste” event. Although Santa Barbara challenges LA’s restaurant scene, you can enjoy some new flavors from some of the top restaurants and bars in the Los Angeles area. If you are a food – channel lover and enjoy a little “Throwdown” then you must check out this Labor Day Block Party. For more information and ticket pricing, please visit


  • If you still want a getaway, but not as far as LA, the GC team always recommends an afternoon of wine tasting in The Santa Ynez valley. The amazing wineries, tasting rooms, and lovely mountain scenery make for the most perfect day in the Valley. While you are in the Valley, do not forget to head over to Trattoria Grappolo for an amazing Italian meal.


  • If you are ready for some outdoor fun, the Santa Barbara Adventure Company offers coastal kayaking, surf lessons, stand up paddle boarding, bike tours, rock-climbing, horseback riding, high ropes, and paragliding. Check out their website at for more information.


  • If you need to take this Labor Day weekend to relax after a busy couple of months, the GC group recommends the Bacara Resort & Spa. They offer sunset wine tastings every Friday evening from 5-6 PM and then live entertainment at their Bacara Bar from 7:30-11:30 PM. You can also relax Fireside with cocoa and s’mores at the Bacara Lobby Terrace on Fridays from 8:00-9:00 PM. For more information on the Bacara Resort & Spa, please visit
