The event raised more than $7,000 for the association’s agricultural scholarship fund and must! charities.
The festival showcased local growers and producers of wine and beef. It featured Harris Ranch beef paired with local wines, live music by Shelly and the Classics, RFD-TV’s cooking celebrities Billy and Sue Ruiz of Cowboy Flavor and must! charities’ Wild West photo booth. The CattleWomen and San Luis Obispo County Cattlemen barbecue masters also served grilled fare and gave how-to prep and cooking demonstrations, along with health tips about beef.
All wineries that participated in the event raise cattle in addition to growing grapes.

The City of San Luis Obispo Utilities Department has been chosen as one of 61 public and private utilities from across the United States, Canada and Denmark as a recipient of the Utility of the Future Today Recognition Program. The department will be honored at a ceremony on Sept. 27 in New Orleans. The program celebrates the progress and exceptional performance of wastewater utilities.
Recipients were selected based on their adoption of UOTF principles, which guide utilities toward smarter, more efficient operations and enhanced productivity, sustainability and resiliency.
“We are so honored to receive this international recognition and will proudly display the flag recognizing our achievements,” Utilities Director Carrie Mattingly said. “Our programs at the Water Resource Recovery Facility are progressive, creative and intended to maximize the benefit to our local community and environment.”
