BUELLTON, Calif. - Buellton hosted wineries, vendors, live music and a chili cook-off at the Flying RV Resort.

“We couldn’t ask for a better day to be drinking wine and enjoying some chili" said Buellton Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Kathy Vreeland.

Tickets to the annual event included chili tasting, unlimited wine and a souvenir wine glass.

“Lots of great wine and great weather so you can’t complain" said Gabby Senne, who moved to Buellton from Chicago.

After the recent showers the nice weather was a pleasant surprise.

“The weather is great and it’s super fun. The music’s very fun. There’s a lot of people looks like having a good time. A little bit of dancing here and there. Yeah looks like it’s going to be great" said Peter Greg, who lives in Buellton.

The event also featured food trucks, retail vendors and live music.

“I love this event. We’ve been doing this event for many years. COVID made it hard but now we’re back in full swing" said vendor, Dan Cassara with Casa Cassara Winery.

“It’s such a good thing to get the community out, the people involved in the community. The chamber does a wonderful job bringing the community out and getting everybody together" said event sponsor, Steve Greig.

“People should come out and if they didn’t get to come to this one, next year come out to the chili festival" said vendor, Ross Rankin with Imagine Wine Buellton.
