This weekend (July 14-15) downtown Los Altos transforms into the largest two-day summer event in the Bay Area. The 33rd Annual Los Altos Art and Wine Festival showcases the works of hundreds of artists and craftspeople from over a dozen states.
If you’ve never been to this event, it is worth the effort to come! There are activities for all ages. There is free music and entertainment on one of the three stages. Children will enjoy a large selection of rides, activities and entertainment in the expanded FunZone. Saturday night from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. there will be a special concert performed by Sage, a rhythm and blues, funk and soul band.
Adults can quench their thirst with a cool margarita, a cold frosty microbrew or a glass of wine from one of the 6 local wineries – Ferwood Cellers, Kings Mountain Vineyards, Martin Ranch Winery, Naumann Vineyards, Page Mill Winery and Thomas Fogarty Winery.
Proceeds from the Los Altos Arts and Wine Festival support year-round programs of the Los Altos Village Association. These programs support local businesses and provide residents with community oriented activities that involve local organizations, nonprofit groups, schools and the seniors of Los Altos.
This year my office at Coldwell Banker is a Sommelier Sponsor. I will be volunteering at the Martin Ranch Winery booth located at the corner of 2nd and state streets – facing Foothill expressway (see map below). Also below is a video highlighting Martin Ranch winery’s recent success at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
As with every year I volunteer at the Los Altos Art and Wine Festival, all my clients, past and present, should stop by from 3:30 – 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and allow me the opportunity to treat you to a glass of Martin Ranch wine. Hope to see you there, Salud!
Lastly, please don’t bring your pets because it can get hot. Green Town Los Altos will be providing free bike parking beginning at 10:00 a.m. behind the Post Office at Main and 3rd Streets.
