Courtyard News

The OC Fair & Event Center announced that this year’s fair has been cancelled. I’m sure we will miss the fun we have at this event but it is in our best interest to be safe during this time of COVID-19. 

The Courtyard is the center of many of our events throughout the year.  Most importantly, it is the location where we sell tastes of the OC Fair award winning wines.  As well as, full glasses of wine, champagne and other merchandise to OC Fair participants.  Also we offer educational wine related seminars during the the OC Fair.  

The Courtyard at the 2020 OC Fair

With the constantly changing environmental landscape throughout the world, formal announcement of the cancellation of the 2020 OC Fair did not come as a surprise. Needless to say, good health is everyone’s top priority.  We are all in this for the long haul, which now includes preparation for the 2021 Courtyard at the OC Fair so, rest assured, with your continued support and enthusiasm, we will return to a stronger, healthier and happier time next year.  Hang in there, keep your glasses at least half full, both literally and figuratively, and let us all look forward to a brighter time much sooner than not.

Thank you for your love of the OCWS and the Courtyard at the OC Fair!!!

Alcohol Server Training for The Courtyard:  Cancelled

As many of you have heard, all TIPs classes scheduled in the Admin Bldg. have been cancelled due to the OCFEC abiding by the stay-at-home order. We are working on options as it will still be a requirement to be TIPs certified. We are also waiting for directions based on the outcome of the OCFEC April 27 meeting. Thank you for your patience and continued support of the Orange County Wine Society.
