Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Maria Valley (BGCSMV) is proud to present the 8th Annual Tour & Taste of the Valley. Tour & Taste has quickly become a local and visitor favorite. The event combines a 50k or 100k ride, 5k or 10k run, artisan fair, live music and a food, beer and wine tasting event.
Ride options take you southeast of Santa Maria through beautiful Central Coast Wine Country. The course is considered a moderate ride.
Run options head west parallel of beautiful Highway 1 (PCH) with a slight uphill incline.
The weather in early September can only be described as "near perfect." The average highs and lows are 75/55 with a consistent coastal breeze.
The Tasting portion of the event hosts over 60 wineries, breweries, and food stations. Make your way through the local artisan booths while enjoying a sampling of the finest food and beverage options Santa Maria has to offer.
While enjoying your food & beverages, your ears will be delighted by Steppin Out. These local musicians were voted the #1 Band in Northern Santa Barbara County in 2010, 2011, 2014, and 2015. They are the finest dance band on the Central Coast and will have you rocking all afternoon!
