Mark your calendars for an unforgettable weekend of art, wine, and fun in downtown La Jolla! The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival (LJAWF) is excited to announce its return to the heart of La Jolla Village for its 16th year.

This prestigious annual event will showcase regional and international fine art, exquisite wines, craft beer, and spirits, all complemented by a family-friendly atmosphere and a commitment to community enrichment.

La Jolla Art & Wine Festival

La Jolla Celebrates Art and Local Flavors

“Every year, we are thrilled to bring together such a diverse and talented group of artists, as well as the region’s finest wineries, distilleries, and breweries, in a grand open-air celebration in the village,” said Brenda Chand, Executive Director of the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to this year’s festival and supporting the arts and education in San Diego.”

Art enthusiasts will have the opportunity to explore and acquire new masterpieces from over 160 artists hailing from across the United States, Mexico, and beyond.

Artists will present their works in a diverse array of mediums, including painting, sculpture, jewelry design, fine glass, ceramics, woodwork, mixed media, and photography, at the open-air festival.

This year’s featured artist is Roy Kerckhoffs, a renowned photographer and mixed media artist whose work conveys a story of a place with a history, highlighting the beauty that exists in human-made wooden, concrete, and steel structures contrasting with soft organic forms from nature.

Wine & Beer Garden

The iconic Wine & Beer Garden will feature more than 35 international wineries, local craft breweries, and distilleries, and local food vendors, offering a delightful array of tastes and experiences.

Whether you are a seasoned connoisseur or simply looking to enjoy a refreshing beverage, the wine and beer garden will provide a welcoming atmosphere to savor and enjoy the festival.

Participants include local favorites Pali Wine Co., Bird Rock Fine Wine, Puesto, Boochcraft, IZO Spirits, Solento Tequila, and more.

An all-star lineup of live entertainment and music will keep the energy high throughout the weekend, with dance performances, interactive installations, a two-day silent auction, and pet adoption stations.

The Geppetto’s Toys Family Art Center

The Geppetto’s Toys Family Art Center will feature fun and engaging activities for children of all ages, provided by organizations such as La Jolla Youth Robotics, The Living Coast Discovery Center, Seaside Arts Center, and Science Guys of San Diego.

Activities will range from face painting and balloon twisting to interactive visual arts projects and exciting robotics demonstrations, ensuring that young festival-goers have an unforgettable experience.
