Art Buyes

Visitors can expect prestigious art, regional and international wines, craft beer and spirits, a high-end silent auction, all-star live entertainment and music, a gourmet food court, over ten pet rescue stations, as well as interactive, family-friendly fun!

The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival features more than 160 hand-selected juried artists from across the U.S. and Mexico. Artists from all backgrounds will display exquisite creations in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, jewelry design, fine glass, ceramics, woodwork, mixed media, and photography. But this weekend is not just for the art connoisseur—the LJAWF is also where wine enthusiasts, craft beer and spirit lovers unite. Festival visitors who are twenty-one and older can sample delectable wines from Valle De GuadalDrinkingupe, California, Italy, and France, and taste a wide variety of internationally renowned brews and spirits by several local San Diego craft breweries and distilleries in the Wine & Beer Garden.

Located in the center of the festival, it boasts more than 13,000 square feet with ample seating, shade, and room to dance! This year’s Wine & Beer Garden is a ticketed event and runs from 12 PM-6 PM with last pour at 5:30 PM.

The Geppetto’s Family Art Center is a FREE family area that features fun, hands-on crafts and interactive art, as well as science experiments, 3-D printing, and an opportunity to contribute to a public space art project.  All profits raised benefit underfunded programs such as art, music, science, physical education, technology, and on-site medical care at La Jolla’s five public schools. Since its inception, the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival has donated more than $1,000,000 (total) to these schools for the educational benefit of more than 4,000 children each year.
