Lafayette Art & Wine Festival
Saturday, September 23, 2023, 10am-7pm & Sunday, September 24, 2023, 10am-6pm
The Chamber’s signature event, the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival, is typically held the 3rd weekend in September, but in 2023 because of the Jewish holiday, the event will be September 23-24. It is perhaps the largest weekend event in Contra Costa County. Over 85,000 visitors attend, strolling among the art and handmade crafts, sampling foods from top local restaurants, and enjoying quality wines and microbrews. Non-stop musical entertainment on four stages throughout the weekend helps spark the block party ambiance. The “Premier Pavilion” offers tastes of some of the world’s finest wines including wines from our own Lamorinda Wine Growers. The event also includes four Kid Zones and a Local Artists Alley. ➡ Visit Official Festival Website for updates.
