The vibrant, magnificent city of Mountain View has evolved in a big way over the last 48 years. A population boom. The arrival of Shoreline Amphitheater as a major concert venue. The amazing growth of Silicon Valley and Mountain View’s emergence as its epicenter. The transformation of a vibrant downtown district with restaurants, shops, cafes, bookstores and performing arts center. And, last but not least, the Art & Wine Festival’s rise to become one of America’s premier art festivals. And it’s that time of year: it’s Mountain View’s time to get festive and this year we celebrate #48!
An authentic and moveable feast for the senses. The cool, vibrant, multicultural Castro Street vibe. Exceptional handcrafted work by 500 of America's top artists and craft-makers. Stellar live music on stage and street throughout downtown including the big, can’t-miss Saturday evening Into The Groove Dance Party Concert featuring the Dick Bright-led Club 90 (4:45-7 p.m.). Fabulous food and festive drink with seasonal craft beer, premium wine, refreshing sangria, mimosas, fresh-fruit margaritas, Bloody Mary’s and signature cocktails. The Xfinity Pigskin Party Lounge with giant screen TV, Cornhole Corner and Stay Cool Misting Tent. The Facebook Community Stage with a dazzling array of gifted young performers. Artisan specialty food purveyors. Home and garden exhibits. Health and wellness displays. An organic and green products showcase. Tons of fun and games for kids. An affordable, sun-splashed, memorable, leisure-filled weekend.
Yep, it’s no secret. Festival fans know the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival is the crème de la crème on the Bay Area festival scene. Voted “Best Festival in the South Bay” multiple times by readers of Metro and still hitting on all cylinders better than ever, this year’s 47th annual festival, September 7-8 promises to be a “festival like no other”.
Widely considered one of America's top art festivals, an enormous throng of art lovers is expected to pour onto Castro Street in Silicon Valley's epicenter for this “Cultural Community Celebration” presented by the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce. Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free.
