Pleasant Hill's Art Jazz and Wine Fest

Sep 21, 2014 10:10AM ● By Jennifer Neys
On October 4&5, The Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Merchants and the City of Pleasant Hill will once again be blocking off Crescent Ave. for a 2-day Celebration of Fine Art & Crafts, Wine Tasting, Beer Garden, Gourmet Food and Jazz. 

New this year is a beer garden to compliment the wine pavilion with premium wines from Livermore to Napa! In addition, arts and craft booths will line both sides of Crescent Drive. The newly expanded KIDSZONE will feature a water ball activity that allows you to walk, crawl, and run in water. Try your hand at the carnival games, bounce in the beach-themed jump house, or line up to get your face painted. Festivities also include an appearance by SpongeBob on the KIDZONE stage at 11am, Jack Alexander Magic, Studio 925 performances, and the Diablo Taiko Japanese drumming group. 

On Saturday, enjoy live entertainment from the Dalt Williams Quartet, Jackson and the Immortals, Mads Tolling Trio, The Big Jangle, and East Bay Mudd to top off the night. On Sunday, the event will kick off with Duo Gadjo, which can be described as jazz music with a French twist. Then, Jinx Jones will rock n’ roll us into the afternoon. Lastly, The Groove Doctors will play music fit for a dance party to end our much-anticipated event!

The festival runs Saturday, 10am – 6pm; a Saturday evening concert, 6:30 - 8:45pm; and Sunday, 11am - 5pm. For more information, visit:
