The inaugural Cali UNCORKED presented by Harrah's Resort of Southern California, a day-long music, comedy, craft beer, wine, and food festival will take place on November 14th at the picturesque Oak Canyon Park in the hills of Silverado, CA.  The venue is a short drive from downtown Irvine, CA.  The festival will also feature a full day of music, with performances from Santa Barbara's Rebelution, and Collie Buddz, as well as indie surf stylings from locals Matt Costa and Tom Curren.

Off-duty firefighters will pour beer and wine for attendees and a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the 3631 Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

Cali UNCORKED will also feature a comedy stage, presented by one of the most influential comedy and lifestyle websites, Funny or Die.  Top national and local comedians such as Grant Cotter, Monty Franklin, Jason Collings, and Gene Pompa will perform on a special Funny or Die Comedy Stage.

Cali UNCORKED is produced by premier music festival production company Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE) and Brew Ha Ha Productions, Orange County, California's most successful and respected craft beer event producer.

Cali UNCORKED will be from 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. on November 14th.  Attendees will enjoy complimentary craft beer and wine tastings from top Californian breweries and wineries throughout the sprawling grassy area of Oak Canyon Park.  Local artisan food trucks and pop-up restaurants will also be on site selling a variety of delicious and unique food options throughout the day and evening.  After 4:00 p.m., several UNCORKED breweries and wineries will continue to offer beverages for purchase.

Producer John Reese of SGE explains, "We wanted to create a new beer, wine, and food festival married with a music and comedy festival that had three headliners: the drinks, the food, and the entertainment.  Since we're Orange County based ourselves, we wanted to highlight the best of the region's beers, wines, artisan nibbles, music, and comedians from our own backyard."

"We have never been more excited about bringing a new event to Orange County," says Cali UNCORKED co-producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions.  "For the past six years we have built a reputation for producing the highest quality and attended craft beer festivals in Southern California, and that reputation is important to us.  We enthusiastically enter into this new venture with SGE confident that we will be presenting a world class event unlike anything our attendees have seen before!"
