Hollywood staples like Cleo, Wood & Vine, and more will be serving up goodies at this eighth annual food fest. You know the drill: a ticket gets you access to unlimited tastings and, at $50 a pop, that really ain’t bad.

Canyon Creek Summer Camp, Lake Hughes
The beloved weekend experience had a brief scare when it changed ownership, but Camp No Counselors is back for more, taking up residence at Canyon Creek Summer Camp during the last weekend of September. Sure to be the highlight of your year (and potentially your life), CNC takes over summer camps around the country and turns them into an all-inclusive, all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink, camp-based adult party scene. Play all the games, sports, and activities you loved as a kid each day before gearing up for the huge open-bar parties at night.
Friday, September 27 - Sunday, September 29
Doheny State Beach, Dana Point
It’s rad enough that Ohana Festival is a relaxed, beachy festival with a stellar lineup and headliners like The Strokes, Eddie Vedder, and the Chili Peppers, but even more rad is the fact that Ohana donates a portion of its proceeds to the San Onofre Parks Foundation as well as Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association. The TBA food and drink lineup, which is always rock solid, don’t hurt none either.
Cost: Single-day passes $128.50-$499.50; weekend pass $355

LA Center Studios
LA’s biggest beer fest is back for fall, held once again at LA Center Studios. Expect live music, a dueling piano bar, and food trucks galore. Oh, and with over 200 beers, there’ll probably be a little drinking involved as well.
Cost: $45 GA or $85 VIP

Pearson Park Amphitheater, Anaheim
Going 14 years strong, this Anaheim tradition will unquestionably be colorful and traditional. This year’s proceeds will benefit the Rhythmo Mariachi Academy, so just think about all the young musicians you’re helping foster into Coco-style stardom.
