The Santa Barbara Polo & Wine Festival will now feature Macy Gray as headliner, replacing Charles Bradley, who recently cancelled all upcoming appearances due to illness. The rest of the October 7 lineup remains, including LP, Nick Waterhouse, Durand Jones & the Indications, Angelou, and Vieux Farka Toure.
The lifestyle combination of this new festival promises quite the experience, featuring two polo matches, local food samplings, and tastings from some of Santa Barbara's finest wineries. Attendees are encouraged to adopt polo attire, and will be treated to an elegant atmosphere within the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club, just 100 yards from the Pacific Ocean.
Participating wineries include Standing Sun Wines, Summerland Winery, Happy Canyon Vineyard, August Ridge Vineyards, and more, while beer will be provided by Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company. The food selection features plates from The Black Sheep, empanadas from Buena Onda, and California cuisine by Barbareno.
Tickets are available now on the SB Polo & Wine Festival website, with general admission, VIP, and Box packages, all of which include a festival branded stemless wine glass and access to both polo matches, all the musical performances, and the wine vendor area.
Event organizer Josh Elion of Castle Field Entertainment said, "After attending our first polo match in the summer of 2016, it immediately became clear to us that a combination of polo, wine, and music would create an amazing experience. It's a way of bringing three aspects of a community together and introducing people to the game of polo, new local wineries, or incredible musicians. Santa Barbara is a beautiful community that has a strong appreciation for all three of these aspects, and so there was no better place in our minds of where this event should be held. This is truly a celebration of Santa Barbara and Southern California living, held at one of the most gorgeous venues along the west coast."
