39th Annual Twain Harte Art and Wine Festival

 

Art And Wine Festival Twain Harte

The 39th Annual Art and Wine Festival in Twain Harte, CA will take place July 23 & 24, 2016 in downtown Twain Harte. Come sip on some wine in the pines and wander around downtown Twain Harte at a street fair celebrating local artists and vendors.

The Annual Art and Wine festival will be open from 10:00pm to 5:00pm on both Saturday and Sunday.   The Art and Wine Festival starts at the Twain Harte Arch (Joaquin Gully Rd) and turns down Cedar Drive. Admission is free, but bring some money for the awesome art, hand crafted gifts, and unique items to buy from local vendors.

There will be live entertainment including musicians and comedians, a vintage car show in Twain Harte Center (La Morenita Parking Lot), and lots of unique art. One of my favorite booths from years past was a wine stopper which not only kept the bottle of wine fresh, but it was so strong, you could hang the bottle upside down without dropping an ounce. I’ll definitely be in line this year! He didn’t have a website to order from so you’ll want to make sure you’re ready to get it this weekend. I also loved picking up some fresh artwork to decorate our cabin.

Sip on Wine in the Pines on Saturday July 23, 2016 from Noon to 4:00pm at 23000 Meadow Lane in downtown Twain Harte.  It’s right across from the Twain Harte Miniature Golf Course.  Sample tons of wine at the Wine and Art Festival. $25 will get you a commemorative wine glass and a booklet which information on all the wine and food vendors. Note that the Wine in the Pines is only available on Saturday July 23 and only goes from noon to 4:00pm. I’ve made this mistake in the past of getting to Wine in the Pines too late on a Saturday.  For more information, email Gloria or check out the Twain Harte Area Chamber of Commerce website.
