Downtown Ventura, outside of Oxnard, Calif., embraces the winter holiday spirit with lights and decorations throughout Main Street, festive attractions and entertainment around every corner at the Ventura Winter Wine Walk and Holiday Street Fair. This year, the city welcomes back the event on Saturday, December 7, from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.

After the large turnout and positive reactions from last year, the Wine Walk will go again, featuring over 45 tasting locations and some of the best wines and spirits from the area. Downtown stores, vendors, crafters and non-profit organizations will participate and offer holiday promotions throughout the day.
The event will also include a complimentary street fair and live entertainment. Besides, what would the holiday season be without jazz and blues in the air?
The Wine Walk itself will start at 4 p.m. Ticketed participants can take their tasting cups from site to site, sampling amazing and specialty wines that are sure to keep internal temperatures high, even if it's chilly outside.
Downtown will save the best for the end of the night: a beautiful and spectacular display of holiday lights and a snowfall. That's right: snow in Ventura!
The Winter Wine Walk and Holiday Street Fair creates the perfect night for families and friends to celebrate the season with the town.
