SANTA MARIA The 2020 Santa Barbara Vintners Festival originally planned for May has been postponed to October due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event has been rescheduled for 1 to 4 p.m. Oct. 10 at Rancho Sisquoc Winery in the Santa Maria Valley. Wineries are also cancelling or postponing larger events such as pickup parties due to the state’s directive to cancel events with more than 250 people, according to Alison Laslett, CEO of Santa Barbara Vintners.
“It is our social responsibility to reschedule the Festival due to the uncertainty of the next few months,” Ms. Laslett said in a statement.
Those who have already purchased tickets to the festival and are unable to attend the new date can get refunds by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
