Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival

Packing for my first trip to this event and wondering what the typical dress is for the events. The website says daytime events are casual and evenings dressy, but they define "casual" as slacks, button down and blazer, and "dressy" as suit and tie. Having been to similar events (though not this one), I have a hard time believing that's how people actually dress for this. Anyone have any experience at this event?

Thanks in advance.

    Understand your dilemma because that sounds very vague. If all else fails, why don't you call the concierge at the Lodge at Pebble Beach for more specifics. Lucky you, it sounds like a wonderful group of events.

      sounds right to me. Wilkes Bashford casual, with matching accessories.

        This is the first year I haven't been. I went to the Masters of Food & Wine for years before that. During the day its very casual. The formal dinners at night are more , well, formal. There will be people in suits and people in jeans and a sport coat. Its a laid back event and well run.

          How crowded are the opening reception and grand tasting events? Is there a lot of waiting in line?

            Did you decide to attend?

              No, I didn't. My in laws are visiting and they weren't interested in going.

                Move to Carmel >>> constant stream of visitors!

                Maybe somebody else can fill us in.

                You'll want to put the Big Sur Wine & Food Festival on your calendar for November.

                  Oh, I'm definitely planning on going to that one! We're hoping for a lull in visitors next month so we can actually get to renovating the guest bath ;)
