Theaterfest of Solvang…

The Solvang Festival Theater was built in 1974 by the community in an effort to revitalize the town of Solvang and bring visitors to the valley.  The theater has been a much loved work in progress for almost forty years. In those years PCPA has brought dozens of exhilarating, moving, and dazzlingly beautiful performances to the Solvang Festival Theater. Theses performances have brought laughter and tears to all who have attended.

We are so proud to host theater goers in the concession area during the PCPA Theater Season.  We will have a special menu complete with Savory and Sweet sensations as well as a selection of fine local wine and beer.

Sample Fresh Cold-Pressed Juices and New Gluten-Free Goodies!

, Tagged in

Fresh JuicesKickstart the new school year off right with an energizing boost to your health, courtesy of The Juice Club. This boutique Santa Barbara juice company sources organic ingredients from our local farms and will begin stocking at The Solvang Bakery starting this month. Stop by on Wednesday, September 4th between 4:30-6:00pm to sample one of their delectable blends, learn more about juice cleansing, and just say hello.

AND while you’re in the ‘hood, meet Susan Giacobazzi, The Solvang Bakery’s new gluten-free partner-in-crime. After a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, Susan embarked on a quest to find a way to relieve the aches and fatigue of her autoimmune disorder without the use of medications.

After considerable research, she found the most significant changes occurred when she removed gluten and dairy from her diet. Today she has combined her love for baking with her desire to lead a healthy and pain-free lifestyle. Susan has created a decadent collection of gluten and dairy free, lightly sweetened treats that even the gluten eaters can’t get enough of!
