We are excited to announce the 23rd Annual Flag Day Salute on Wednesday, June 14th featuring World Series Champion and Major League Baseball Legend - Steve Garvey.

Drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers, Garvey had one of the most enduring careers in MLB history as a World Series Champion, 10-time All-Star and 2-time All-Star Game MVP. As one of the most decorated athletes in California history and a committed Conservative who loves America, we are thrilled to welcome him to Orange County as we head into the 2024 election season. 

For the past 22 years the Republican Party of Orange County has celebrated the stars and stripes through our Annual Flag Day Salute as a major fundraising event. This year, having had a major fundraiser in March, we have decided to make our 23rd Annual Flag Day Salute an All-American Block Party to provide a more casual and affordable event for our volunteers and supporters. No better way to kick off summer than with Baseball - it's the American way. 

I hope you will be able to join us for a fun celebration, real beer and kick-off to the 2024 election at Orange County's own Brewery X.

California Wine Festival Returns in 2023 with New Event Dates at Four Top Coastal Destinations

Following a successful slate of 2022 events, California Wine Festival returns in 2023 with a new lineup of signature oceanfront tasting opportunities, celebrating two decades of world-class wine discovery and everything that makes California the idyllic destination for wine enthusiasts. Entering its 20th event season, each festival pays homage to the vast offerings from winemaking regions across the Golden State, paired with gourmet food selections from local dining purveyors, with live entertainment and expansive coastal views. 

Each two-day affair commences with a Friday evening “Sunset Rare & Reserve Tasting”, an intimate experience for dedicated wine lovers. Kicking off with a sparkling wine reception, the evening features samplings of hard-to-find trophy wines and offers tasting room exclusives and limited-production bottles hailing from vineyards based in Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, Temecula and more. Top regional culinary talent will serve delicious hot and cold appetizers to pair with the top-notch wines. Each “Sunset Rare & Reserve Tasting” overlooks picturesque waterfront landscapes.

The next day boasts a “Beachside Wine Festival”, a sun-drenched daytime event advancing culinary education and exploration through one-on-one conversations and tastings with culinary and wine representatives hailing from California’s most esteemed wineries and local restaurants. Attendees will have access to hundreds of premium California wines and regional craft brews. Delectable wines can be paired with samples of artisanal cheeses, fresh-cut fruit, shellfish, salads, olive oil, decadent chocolate and more. Each event will host a live band providing the perfect ambiance to a carefree day while basking in sunshine and enjoying the coastal California scenery.

“It’s phenomenal to look back at when we first founded the festival in Santa Barbara two decades ago to how far we have come today,” says Emily Kaufmann, Executive Director, California Wine Festival. “We’re still here, bigger than ever, and providing the quintessential California experience at more venues across this beautiful state. There are so many phenomenal winemakers and chefs who continue to make our festival a must attend event year-after-year.”

In addition to promoting and celebrating the exquisite wines and diverse cuisine of California, each festival aims to advance charitable organizations from each event locale. Many of the events will feature a silent auction during the Sunset Rare & Reserve Tasting to benefit organizations including: Sandy Feet Initiative, Surfrider Foundation of South Orange County, Golden Rule Charity and Food Bank of Santa Barbara County.
