2022 Dine Out Santa Maria Style & Craft Cocktail Contest

Join us for 2022 Dine Out Santa Maria Style–a month-long celebration of Santa Maria Valley culinary culture, taking place January 14 – February 13, 2022.

All-month long, some of our favorite restaurants will be serving up special menu items for just–wait for it–$20.22! Whether Santa Maria Valley is home, or you’re visiting us for a post-holiday getaway, this month-long event is the perfect time to pop into Santa Maria Valley’s most iconic and celebrated (and delicious) culinary stops.

But wait, there’s more! We’re also bringing back our Craft Cocktail Contest for its third year! The handmade and unique cocktails you’ll find at various establishments are meant to represent our region’s history and culture. At the end of the month, YOU will have a part in helping us choose this year’s winner!
