Jun 13, 2017 04:02PM ● By Becky Coburn
Celebrate the sizzling season’s kickoff on June 3 and 4 at the 36th annual Walnut Creek Art & Wine Festival, including two, fun-filled days of free family entertainment and over 250 arts and crafts booths, fine wine, live music, a wide variety of food and drink concessions, Craft Brew Garden for suds fans, and interactive Kids Zone – all spread throughout beautiful Heather Farm Park. Sponsored by the Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau, the Art & Wine Festival is a summer tradition for generations of families.

New this year is a 15-foot jumbo screen that will feature a variety of programming, including playoff games should they happen to overlap with the festival. The giant monitor along with serving bites and brews creates the vibe of an outdoor sports bar. An Indie Craft Marketplace also makes a debut this year, adding a fresh array of artists and craftsmen to the mix, with lots of unique products.

Dance to the sounds of nonstop live music from local favorites Zepparella, Neon Velvet, Civic Arts Jazz Band, Jambalaya, Boombox, Lumberyard, and Erica Sunshine Lee. Catch a wide array of local entertainment from the Rising Stars lineup to rock the stages. The Rising Stars Stage will once again showcase up-and-coming talented performers, from belly dancers to barber shop quartet, jazz, hip hop, dragon dancers, and more – there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

The festival is on Saturday, June 3, 11am to 7pm, and Sunday, June 4, 11am to 6pm. Free, continuous shuttles are available from Shadelands Business Park. BART riders, take the free shuttle from the Walnut Creek

BART station. Paid parking is available on site. Heather Farm Park, 301 N. San Carlos Drive, Walnut Creek.
