The Catalina Wine Mixer Is Real And You Need To Go
For those of you who live under a rock, The Catalina Wine Mixer is an iconic event portrayed in the film Step Brothers. The event was purely fictional, but in 2015 it became reality. Since then the island has put on this three day festival, and we suggest you check it out. After all it’s the f*****g Catalina Wine Mixer.

The event is taking place this weekend 9/22-9/24 at the Descanso Beach Club. Things kick off on Friday at 7:30PM with a screening of Step Brothers at the Avalon Theatre, followed by a Step Brothers themed costume party. The party will also host a contest for the best character costume, and the prizes are pretty great. Winning participants will score:
- A future night’s stay at Pavilion Hotel
- Round trip boat transportation
- Two Zip Line Eco Tours ($250 value)
- A Meet & Greet with the Dan Band
Saturday and Sunday are when the day drinking commences. 10 wine tastings are available for $20, unless you’re VIP, then wine tasting comes with your ticket. You can also purchase wine and cocktails by the glass if you really feel like turning up. Musical performances will be put on throughout each day. This years performers include G Love and Special Sauce,The Wailers, GGOOLLDD, and The Dan Band. Needless to say, it’s going to be a wild weekend with major Step Brothers vibes.
