Los Alamos celebrates Old Days in September each year to commemorate the history of this interesting community in Santa Barbara County. Several hundred miles from Southern California is the quaint town which was once a stage stop for travelers heading north and south. This community offers a simple alternative to the busy, busy life most city folks experience.  A few streets, antiques and relics of the earlier days, bars, corner stores and everything from trailer homes to ranches make this hidden treasure a place to relax and smell the roses (or wine grapes which are increasing in numbers day by day). 

 

Old Days Celebration is an annual event which has been held for over 55 years.  It usually features three days of barn raising, foot stomping entertainment with an evening dinner, some fiddling and a chili cook-off one evening, a Saturday morning pancake breakfast, a classic car show, a parade with floats and entertainment from local and guest performers such as the famous "Monty Montana Trick Roping Display".  Food vendors selling peach tea, red beans and spicy Cajun crawfish and Creole, crafters selling hand made items and some classic vehicles and tractors. Smack dab in the middle of town, you could walk the length of the event in a very short time.  It's  the type of event we seek for its ease of access, price (free), and camaraderie. 

 

Places to stay nearby include several hotels in Los Alamos plus many nearby in Santa Maria, Solvang, Buellton, Lompoc and Los Olivos, the names you may not hear of until you visit our web site.  So please explore and think about visiting next year. By the way, leave Armani, Gucci and Dior at the door before you head out for this adventure.  You won't need them until you get back home.

Where to stay? Lompoc, Solvang, Buellton and Santa Maria all make great options for your visit to Los Alamos.
