La Jolla, California
Deadline: June 30
La Jolla Art & Wine Festival returns to the scenic seaside village of La Jolla, once known as the artist colony by the sea. This two-day juried art show and fundraiser has quickly garnered a reputation as one of the most prestigious art & wine festivals in Southern California. The festival is free and open to the public, attracting over 30,000 visitors. Today, La Jolla is the embodiment of luxury, style and class. The chic allure draws art lovers from around the globe.
The festival features over 150 select artists from across the country and offers something special for everyone, including a silent auction, roving entertain-ment, a gourmet marketplace, a lively family art center and a wine and beer garden which will include premier wineries, in addition to San Diego's top breweries.
New this year: We have expanded to cover over 2 miles through the heart of La Jolla Village. The popular wine & beer garden will re-open after the Festival for an exciting after-hours fundraiser to benefit pediatric cancer research. The night-time event draws even larger crowds to the festival in the late afternoon.
Marketing: The Festival is marketed primarily to Southern California and Arizona but attracts travelers from around the world. Marketing includes radio, newspaper and magazine print ads, as well as an aggressive email and online marketing program. Targeted ads are placed in art publications to attract the serious art buying community.
Application fee: $25
