22nd Annual Lafayette Art & Wine Festival

Top 7 Reasons the Award-Winning Lafayette Art & Wine Festival is So Popular

 

Lafayette Art  & Wine Festival, scheduled for September 16, 10am-7pm and September 17, 10am-6pm, is big time fun with a small town feel. Here are the top 7 reasons this festival, now in its 22nd year, remains so popular:

 

1. Location: Held in beautiful downtown Lafayette on 3535 Mt. Diablo Blvd, the festival is steps from BART, near bike trails, 2 blocks off Hwy 24, and an easy walk/shuttle from free festival parking.

 

2. Continuous Music & Dancing - no cover charge: You'll find San Francisco Bay Area's best cover bands playing a mix of jazz, blues, country & rock on 4 stages featuring East Bay Mudd, The Big Jangle, ZEBOP!, Bell Brothers, The Spazmatics, Sun Kings and many more. Rest assured, these local favorites will be constant music to your ears.

 

3. Unique Wine & Beer Offerings: Booths pouring both beer and wine are found throughout the festival, sponsored by a variety of companies to insure diversity & something for everyone.

 

4. Food: With 20 local restaurants, food trucks, and food booths participating in this year’s event, there’s no shortage of variety and no way you’ll be hungry!

 

5. Original Fine Arts & Crafts: Showcasing booths from Erickstrom Productions, which have been a part of the festival since its inception in 1996, as well as a Local Artists Alley, the festival aims to please everyone’s artistic needs.

 

6. Family + Dog Friendly: From KidZones to dog cooling stations, the festival is made for the whole family to enjoy. Music and events are always family-friendly, and furry companions are welcome provided they’re on leashes.

 

7. Budget Friendly: While festival admission is overall mostly free, the KidZone has a $1-$5 fee, and the drink tickets and glasses are $7 each with combination packages available with big discounts. However, festival proceeds support various Lafayette community programs and charities, to be announced with more festival details in the coming weeks. In the past, the festival has helped Lafayette Partners in Education (LPIE) and other non-profits. So if you’re going to spend a little money at the festival to taste some great wine or give your kids a fun experience, at least your money is being used to help others.
