Please Note: I am hosting this event for both Gay Foodies and Pleasure Palate. This event is part of a series of events taking place in the Santa Ynez Valley. The events are a la carte, meaning you don't need to attend the other events to attend this one.
After visiting the Old Mission Santa Ines, we will exlplore other points of interest in Solvang and stuff our faces with danishes and other treats we find in the local shops nd bakeries.
We will try to visit and experience all the places below before we head to an early dinner at the Hitching post which is scheduled for 5 PM.
"Sharing Holiday Cheer" Julefest Tree Display creates a kaleidoscope of decorated foliage throughout the village of Solvang. Live fir trees ranging from 5-9 feet tall in festive containers brighten Solvang during this holiday season.
ELVERHOJ MUSEUM OF HISTORY AND ART
Exhibits showcase Solvang's rich cultural history. The former residence of one of Solvang's most artistic families is now a community museum devoted to the history of Solvang, the Danish-American pioneer spirit, the colorful heritage of Denmark, and the arts. The historic hand-crafted structure was the dream home of Viggo Brandt-Erichsen and his wife, Martha Mott. He was an internationally recognized painter and sculptor and she was an accomplished painter and art teacher.
HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN MUSEUM
Established to foster public understanding of Hans Christian Andersen and his work.
Located upstairs in The Book Loft Building, 1680 Mission Drive, Solvang.
The SOLVANG VINTAGE MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM houses a collection of vintage and rare motorcycles as well as European race bikes. The motorcycles in the museum are from the private collection of Virgil Elings. The collection is quite broad: vintage motorcycle racing, both motocross and road racing bikes. The museum rotates some of the bikes each month so that the bikes on display are constantly changing and expanding.
