2014 Celebrity Cruises Great Wine Festival

Celebrity Cruises Orange County Special Event

Celebrity Cruises in partnership with top Orange County restaurants are coming together on May 31, 2014 for the 2014 Celebrity Cruises Great Wine Festival. Tickets are available at the event’s website, click here.

The benefit event will raise money for Legal Aid Society of Orange County and Community Legal Services in Southeast Los Angeles.  Highlights of the event include wine, brews and culinary offerings from more than 40 wineries, craft breweries, spirits companies and local restaurants.

The Celebrity Cruises Great Wine Festival takes place May 31, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Great Park in Irvine, California.

Scott Clifton, director of sales, said that “Celebrity’s love affair with the culinary arts continues to flourish. We saw this opportunity to introduce food and wine aficionados to culinary experiences they can enjoy while on a Celebrity ship, as well as restaurants and beverages they have yet to try.”

Did someone say “Irvine”

Yes! And how convenient for me that I just so happen to live very close to the event grounds at the Great Park in Orange County. I am hoping that my family law attorney friend Kayleene Writer will once again join me at the event. She loves Celebrity Cruises and is a willing participant when it comes to reporting live from Celebrity Cruises local events (like the Celebrity Cruises wine tasting in Malibu).
