The Taste of Solvang
Solvang was founded by a group of Danish Americans a little over a hundred years ago.
Now, you can visit and enjoy the Taste of Solvang.
These days the village is still clearly influenced by its Scandinavian roots, but the local foodie scene has expanded.
It’s still easy to find traditional Danish food, but you’ll also find a huge assortment of other dishes to please your taste buds.
It’s always great to experience the many flavors of Solvang, but the Taste of Solvang weekend food festival was extra delicious.
The annual event features a variety of food and drink featured events for locals and visitors to the area.
They offer a weekend passport or tickets to individual events, so you can customize your experience.
We had a great time at the Friday night Sip & Savor party and then headed into town on Saturday for the Tasting & Shopping Trail and the Wine & Beer Walk.
This was a fun way to eat and drink our way around town at our own pace.
Of course, we also took advantage of the shopping deals and bought some gourmet Danish treats as souvenirs.

Taste of Solvang
Solvang is an excellent destination for foodies and people who enjoy wine, beer and distilled spirits.
I’d highly recommend putting next year’s Taste of Solvang on your calendar, but you don’t have to wait until then.
The town is walkable with plenty of good options for food and drink, so it’s great for a day trip or an extended stay any time of the year.
Check out the California Wine Club to try out small batch wines at home, when you are not out touring vineyards and wine tasting rooms! This is a great way to discover new favorites and save money.
Another great option is to order adult beverages from Saucey to be delivered to you, when you are traveling. They have a fantastic selection.
