“The event dates were chosen to coincide with an established culinary event, the Santa Maria Valley Strawberry Festival, in order to encourage locals and visitors to experience a taste of the Santa Maria Valley,” said Gina Keough, manager of the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor & Convention Bureau, which is coordinating the promotion.

Diners are encouraged to make reservations in advance, and to mention the “DineOut: Santa Maria Style” promotion when dining or making a reservation as regular menu items will also be available.
Says Keough, “’DineOut: Santa Maria Style’ is a great way for people to affordably experience the variety of our local flavors.”
