California Ranch Cookouts


California Ranch Cookouts Will Be Back In The Spring!

Our 2022 season of California Ranch Cookouts just concluded but we are happy to announce a new season of cookouts coming back in the spring of 2023!

These cookouts take place on the Rodeo Arena and the Oval Lawn, two spacious and unique al fresco dining spaces at the Ranch amidst the beautiful rolling hills that provide stunning wide-open backdrops for these cookout experiences.

Our guest chefs will cook up a feast, creating a memorable outdoor dining experience that will leave you full, yet hungry for more!

Focusing on barbecued favorites, each meal will feature savory meats, seafood, delicious roasted veggie dishes, and grilled decadent desserts.

If you already will be staying at Alisal Ranch when these events occur, there will be no extra charge for your attendance. If you don’t yet have an accommodation reserved, this is a great excuse for a getaway.

Our 2022 Program Has Ended.

Please Stay Tuned For Our 2023 Line Up Of Guest Chefs!
