Mountain View, CA. — Raise a glass and celebrate – Art & Wine returns to Mountain View! The Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce that our beloved annual gathering will return this fall – with a few important changes. Due to the impact of the health emergency, this year we are presenting the 49-½ annual Art & Wine Festival: Pint-Sized Edition – a single day celebration that keeps the best of what attendees love in a more controlled space. The event will be held in the parking lot of the Mountain View Caltrain Station, at the site of the Sunday Farmer’s Market.
“We are so excited to have the Chamber bring back the fun and vibrancy of such a fabulous and longstanding tradition,” said Mountain View Mayor Ellen Kamei. “We are grateful the Chamber found a way to make everyone feel welcome and safe at the upcoming Art & Wine Festival, while ensuring sensitivity to the ongoing health situation.”
While the event will be smaller than in years past, it promises to be an exciting and diverse affair, with 140 professional artists and craft makers showing exceptional handcrafted wares, stellar live music on stage, at least 14 fabulous food vendors, and plenty of premium wines, seasonal craft beer, low-carb hard seltzer and refreshing sangria. There will also be a kids’ area featuring a bungee jump, face painting and other activities.
Festival admission is free, though voluntary donations to support the Chamber’s community activities will also be gratefully accepted. Capacity is limited, so advance registrations are advised. Attendees will also be welcome at the door as capacity allows.
In keeping with the most recent health guidelines, it is strongly recommended that attendees be fully vaccinated. If not fully vaccinated, guidelines strongly recommend that attendees obtain a negative COVID-19 test prior to attending the event and wear a face mask covering while at the festival.
“We’re jazzed about this year’s smaller event, and are of course looking forward to being back in full force for our big 50th anniversary next year” added Peter Katz, President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce.
