CELEBRITY CRUISES WEST COAST 2016 EVENTS
May 3, 2016
Find Out What Festivals and Other Fun Events Celebrity Cruises West Coast Will Be at Next!
Have you seen Celebrity Cruises at an event recently? If you’ve been to a wine, food, or film festival on the west coast lately, there’s a good chance we’ve been there! We love going to local events and sharing information about cruising with attendees — and pouring some wine or cocktails! Sometimes we even have a delicious menu item served in one of our ship’s dining rooms for attendees to try. Here are some highlights from recent events we’ve been at and some coming up that you may want to get a ticket to. They’re a lot of fun!
Recent West Coast Events
Newport Beach Film Festival
The Newport Beach Film Festival was a fabulous affair full of fun and — of course — films. We had wine and our own Celebrity film to share and enjoyed chatting with attendees about movies and traveling.
If you want to have your own little film festival at home, you can find some great food tips here from one of our Celebrity Cruises chefs for pairing dinner with a movie at home (similar to “A Taste of Film” event done onboard select Celebrity Cruises ships).
Seattle Food and Wine Festival
Up north in Washington, the Seattle Food and Wine Festival was an exciting day full of samples from some of Seattle’s top restaurants and wineries from nearby regions like Yakima and Wall Walla. Celebrity Cruises served a delicious smoked salmon dish and cocktails made from a recipe served onboard our ships. Attendees took a break from the tasting booths to relax with a drink on the relaxing couches Celebrity had set up.
Upcoming West Coast Events
We will be at many exciting and fun events later this year. Here are a sample of some of the ones you can attend from Southern California to the Pacific Northwest.
Farm to Fork’s Taste of Summer event in Sacramento from June 3 through June 5 is the next big event we have coming up. We are excited to be a sponsor at this delicious event, which features a variety of dinners and wine tasting events.
The California Wine Festival is always a fun time and the next one is coming up in Santa Barbara on July 16 (followed by the California Wine Festival at Sea sailing to Alaska with Celebrity Cruises). Many local wineries and restaurants from the Central Coast of California will be exhibiting alongside our Celebrity Cruises lounge.
Farther north in San Francisco, you can find us at Eat Drink SF from August 26 through 28. Eat Drink SF is an annual festival that features food, wine, and spirits from all around the bay area.
A unique event that still has tickets available is WineSong in Fort Bragg, California. WineSong is a food and wine tasting event that is also a charity auction to raise money for Mendocino Coast District Hospital. Celebrity Cruises will be a sponsor at its Pinot Noir Celebration on September 9 where guests will sample over 25 wineries with an emphasis on Pinot Noir, which will be paired with Little River Inn’s cuisine.
If you want to try some wine and food in paradise, head to the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival in Oahu, Hawaii this October 28 and 29.
We have several other west coast events coming up this year, too. Check them all out on our About page. We hope to see you at one!
