Orange County Festivals – 2021 / 2022

While there’s certainly no shortage of things to do in Orange County, visiting during the area’s Restaurant Week celebration or when a fun food or wine festival is happening can definitely kick your trip up a notch! The event list below may be useful for your trip planning purposes.

Welcome sign at Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival in Anaheim, CAFor each entry on the list, you’ll find in which city and on what date(s) it’s scheduled to occur, plus a link to a website that provides additional details. Given the ongoing pandemic, it would probably be wise to check again and verify the details closer to an event’s date.

The list includes many dates for 2022 culinary events and others with 2021 dates. ***Events for which a 2022 date is not yet available are marked with a triple-asterisk.***

Many of these are annual events that are held around the same time every year. While we plan to check and update this list from time to time, if a 2021 event looks particularly interesting you may want to click through to see if the organizer’s website has been updated.

If your travel dates are already set, here are some handy jump links that you can use to advance to a specific month’s events quickly:
