We're less than one month away from one of San Diego's hottest Fall tickets! Named nationally as one of the U.S.' "Top Fall Food & Drink Events" by Eater.com, the non-profit La Jolla Art & Wine Festival is set to take place this year on Saturday, October 12th & Sunday, October 13th. Packed with 2 days of wine, art, music, fun & charity, the entire picturesque village of downtown La Jolla will transform itself into one of the most prestigious art and wine festivals in the country!
Taking place in the gorgeous coastal village of downtown La Jolla, the bustling area of Girard Avenue will once again transform itself into an art and wine lovers paradise featuring the works of over 150 established artists from San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County, Baja and beyond. This year’s fifth annual LJAWF welcomes veterans from years past as well as returning award-winners. This year’s show also features a significant batch of renowned artists who will be showing at the LJAWF for the first time. LJAWF artists’ works celebrate a number of mediums such as painting, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, fine glass, woodwork, mixed media and photography. All of the artists showing at the LJAWF have been handpicked by a highly qualified jury of artists, authors, critics and collectors.
Founded by Sherry Ahern, a driving force in San Diego’s philanthropic landscape, the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival was created through the support of Friends of La Jolla Elementary Inc. and has in recent years established a partnership 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 four local public elementary and middle schools, which are all part of the San Diego Unified School District. Pets will be permitted this year within the event.
