Uncorked is ...

California UNCORKED is a premiere day-long music, comedy, craft beer, wine and food festival in Southern California. This event will take place November 14th at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA, just a short 10 minute drive into the mountains from downtown Irvine.

Playing host to several California wineries and breweries, festival-goers show up early to receive their complimentary UNCORKED tasting glass to enjoy unlimited complimentary tastings from 1pm-4pm.

Locally sourced food trucks and restaurants will be on site to serve great artisan nibbles!

Unlimited tastings will be available 1pm-4pm. After 4pm, Uncorked will have several brewers and wineries on hand to serve you drinks to purchase.

The Festival Area boasts a sprawling grassy area with several shaded seating spots to relax in all day long.

Also in the festival area is Funny Or Die's Comedy Stage hosted by the Irvine Improve. Featured will be comedic talent of several local and nationally known stand up comedians!

As the sun goes down, the stage lights up for an unforgettable night of the best in roots reggae and indie singer-songwriters. Cali Uncorked will be headlined by Santa Barbara's own REBELUTION, along with Collie Buddz, Matt Costa and Tom Curren!

General admission tickets start at $45

Cali Uncorked will offer a safe shuttle for all festival attendees from Oak Canyon Park to the Irvine Spectrum (one way) anytime from 4pm-8pm. Because of the location of Oak Canyon and the poor cell service, we feel that from the Irvine Spectrum you will more conveniently be able to arrange an uber or taxi, even grab a bite to eat and drink around the Spectrum! Please look for the "SHUTTLE to Irvine Spectrum" sign as you exit the venue. The shuttle stop is located near the entrance/exit of the venue in the parking area. Shuttles will operate from 4:00pm - 8:00pm on Saturday, November 14th. Vehicles left overnight at Oak Canyon Park will not be towed. You will have until 10:00 am Sunday, Nov 15th to come back and get your car safely. We invite everyone to drink responsibly and utilize the shuttle ride back to civilization and cell reception!

Does my Rally Bus ticket include admission into Cali Uncorked?

No, you will want to buy an admission ticket as well. You can do this ahead of time here or at the door.

If I take the Rally Bus, what time will I arrive and return?

The Rally Bus will arrive about 1pm on site and will head back about 7:30pm.
You will not want to buy the 'early entry festival ticket' because you will not be onsite until about 1pm. You will want to buy either a VIP lounge, VIP meet and greet or general admission festival ticket. If you already purchased an early entry festival ticket and want to take the Rally Bus, please email us at [email protected] and we can help you out!

Does my general admission ticket or VIP get me into the music concert too?

Yes! The ticket gets you in the door to enjoy unlimited tastings until 4pm and the entire sprawling site to enjoy the comedy stage and music stage as well.

How and when can I buy Designated Driver Tickets?

Designated Driver tickets can only be bought at the door the day of the event while entering with the people/person they will be driving. Those tickets are $30 and the DD must be with people who bought Cali Uncorked admission tickets (GA or VIP, doesn't matter)

We will be bringing a Designated Driver for our group of VIP attendees. Which Designated Driver pass do we buy for them?

We only have one type of Designated Driver pass which must be purchased at the door while entering with the people/person they will be driving. Designated Drivers may enter the festival at the same time the people they are accompanying go in. However if those they are driving have VIP passes to go into the VIP lounge, the VIP viewing area or the meet and greet, the Designated Driver will need to buy a VIP package to receive these perks. The $30 DD pass is just to gain entry into the festival only.

Is there a fee for parking?

Yes, Please bring $10 cash per vehicle

If I leave my car in the parking lot and go home via cab, will the lot be open for me to pick up my car later in the day or the next day?

Yes, Cali Unforked focuses on safety first and we make every effort to help you drink responsibly. We encourage you to make alternative transportation plans in advance rather than driving yourself. However, if you have not made those plans and you are not ready to drive at the close of the event, you will have many safe options. You may hang around the event until 8pm. We will still have free water and sodas for you to drink and food vendors and games for you to enjoy. If you want to take a cab and leave your car there, we will have cabs available or will call you one. Just ask someone at one of the exits. Your car will be accessible and you can pick it up as late as 10am the next day (Sunday the 15th).

What if I lose or break my tasting glass?

Be careful! We do not provide replacements. You may be able to purchase one for $5.00 if supplies last.

Can I buy extra commemorative glasses?

Yes, at the end of the event if supplies last.
