Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Maria Valley (BGCSMV) is proud to present the
9th 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 50 booths including wineries, breweries, food and artists . You'll enjoy sampling the finest food and beverages Santa Maria has to offer.
This year we are please to have the band Three4All. They are an award winning trio that play at many venues on the Central Coast. They play a crowd pleasing mix of covers of Classic Rock , Motown and more.
