10am – 5pm
Join us come rain or shine, for Los Olivos’ most highly acclaimed festival of the year, the popular Day in the Country. This special day is a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy country living the way it used to be in simpler times. And best of all, attendance is free!
Day in the Country is our biggest event of the year – a Los Olivos tradition of celebrating our quaint country town with an early morning family fun run (you can even enter your dog!), small-town parade, over a hundred local and regional makers, crafters, artists and food purveyors, wine tastings, tractor show, and more fun for all ages, including a Beer Garden at Fig Mtn Brew and a Wine Roundup throughout downtown for adults!
This year is our town flagpole’s 100th birthday! Join us at right after the parade (around 10:45am) for a flag celebration with free cake at the flagpole in the center of town (Grande Ave and Alamo Pintado Ave).
Folks young and old come from far and wide to experience what it’s like to spend a day in the country, Los Olivos style.
