Santa Cruz Shakespeare Festival Rises From the Ashes & Becomes a Model of Independent Festivals
Food & Wine Event
The Resort at Pelican Hill
As autumn arrives along the coast of Newport Beach, The Resort at Pelican Hill presents its fourth annual three-day harvest season celebration, bringing the sights, sounds, tastes and traditions of Italy to Southern California’s seaside village. The series of weekend events features art created before your eyes, regional Italian fare and live performances by musicians, dancers and flag bearers. For a weekend, or perhaps just a day, experience the harvest season like never before, as you are transported to somewhere much further away.
The weekend kicks off with a multi-course dinner inspired by the freshest autumn ingredients, paired with Italian wines and presented by guest chef Massimiliano Mascia from Ristorante San Domenico, one of Italy’s finest Michelin Star restaurants in Imola. The festivities continue the next day with the Italian Street Festa, Festa dell'Unitá, and Carnevale dei Bambini (children's daycamp), and ends on Sunday with the Under the California Sun Jazz Brunch.
