Pleasant Hill Art, Jazz and Wine Fest


Mark your calendars for Pleasant Hill's signature event! It’s time for the 14th Annual Art, Jazz and Wine Fest in Downtown Pleasant Hill on Saturday, October 1, 10am to 6pm, followed by an evening concert at 6:30pm, and Sunday, October 2, 11am to 5pm.


The Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City of Pleasant Hill and Downtown Pleasant Hill, presents a weekend of live music, fun entertainment and activities for children, arts and crafts vendors, and also features local wines and craft brews. Best of all, general admission is FREE!


Live Music

Enjoy two full days of live music, starting Saturday, with Breedloves, Jackson & the Immortals, The New Frantics, and Queens & Thieves. Back by popular demand, East Bay Mudd performs at the Saturday evening concert, 6:30 - 8:45pm. Sunday's line-up features Jinx Jones and the King Tones and The Bell Brothers.


Wine, Arts & Crafts on Crescent Drive

"Stroll down Crescent Drive and shop at more than 70 booths, featuring handmade crafts, fine art, textiles, jewelry, and more," says Steve Van Dorn, President & CEO of the Chamber of Commerce. "And don't miss a visit to our Premium Wine Pavilion, featuring award winning California wines.  Representatives from Napa, Sonoma and Livermore wineries offer insights to their regional varietals, showcasing their finest wines and answering your questions."


Craft Beer Garden

The Craft Beer Garden will have live entertainment and is very popular with both singles and families because of its proximity to the family entertainment at KidZone.


KidZone at City Hall Lawn

This year, look for exciting and fun events in our ever-expanding KidZone. Children enjoy the bounce house and can walk, crawl or run in the water balls activity. Popular children's entertainer Samantha Samuels presents the children’s stage entertainment, including Studio A Dancers, Village Music School, Dae Han Martial Arts, and Boswick the Clown on Saturday, and Puppets of Praise, Pleasant Hill Library Storytelling Time, and Pleasant Hill Starquest on Sunday, plus more!
