Food, Wine & Beer Events

Catalina Island, located off the coast of Southern California, offers a variety of food, wine and beer events throughout the year. Taste Around Avalon is a favorite event letting diners taste bites and vote for favorites from local restaurants. This event is the kick off for Avalon Restaurant Week, an annual event where local restaurants showcase their culinary talents by offering prix fixe menus or special discounts. Inspired by the popular event in the movie "Step Brothers," the Catalina Wine Mixer is an annual event that takes place in early summer. It features wine tastings, live music, a screening of Step Brothers and various activities. Catalina Island Women's Forum Wine Festival celebrates wine, art, and raises funds for young local women in the beautiful setting of Catalina Island. And the Two Harbors Wine Fest kicks off the summer season on the beach in Two Harbors every July.

Catalina Island is also becoming a destination for beer samplers with the Flx Biergarten's Oktoberfest and Ale Trail, the Catalina Musuem's Oktoberfest Celebration and Two Harbors Brew Fest.
