One of the most anticipated art and wine festivals is returning to San Diego on Saturday, October 8, and Sunday October 9.

The seventh annual La Jolla Art and Wine Festival takes over the heart of the village on Girard Avenue.

This free-to-the-public fundraiser is a feast for the eyes,ears and taste buds.

The two-day festival showcases the works of over 150 artists who hail from San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County and beyond.

The marketplace will be filled with live entertainment, a parade of stilt walkers and plenty of food and wine.

Enter the silent auction, then stroll on over to the beer garden and select from a variety of beers and wines served by top wineries and breweries from around the county.

Before heading off to listen to some of San Diego's finest musicians, grab a bite to eat from one of culinary venues such as Bullseye Kettle Corn & Shave Ice, Poke Go, Abu's Kitchen, Puesto, or Beachin' Boba.

This years's entertainment includes: Vibhas Kendzi, Brad Perry, Jazz Pigs, Jimmy & Enrique, Mark & Armando, Susie with Oh La La, Michael Tiernan, Haskell Collins Band, Full Strength Funk Band, and The La Jolla High School Marching Band.

Lovers of art will find almost everything they are looking for with a wide selection of mediums to chose from. 

The festival offers 2D art, watercolors, ceramics, printmaking, photography and a whole lot more. 

This event was created by Friends of La Jolla Elementary and founders of the La Jolla Open Aire Market. Recently the event has partnered with the La Jolla Village Merchants Association.

All profits raised benefit underfunded programs such as art, music, science, physical education, technology, and on-site medical care at local public elementary and middle schools.

La Jolla Art and Wine Festival is on Saturday, October 8, and Sunday, October 9. 

Located on Girard Avenue; between Torrey Pines Road and Prospect Street.
