The 2021 Lafayette Art & Wine Festival has been cancelled.
One of the many charms of the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival is how it integrates into our downtown and allows people to freely mix and mingle at vendor booths, local businesses, local restaurants, and music stages.
But as we all know, there has been a significant setback in the public health response to the pandemic, driven by the delta variant and low vaccination rates (not in Lamorinda, but elsewhere). Logistical issues have made it impossible to implement effective guidelines or rules to allow for a safe and comfortable event for everyone. Therefore, the 2021 Lafayette Art & Wine Festival has been cancelled for this September.
We thank our volunteers, especially our committee members and the Chamber Board, our partners, and of course, all our sponsors, beer & wine booth hosts, vendors, artists and musicians for understanding that the health of our community is of utmost concern.
We look forward to a terrific 2022 Lafayette Art & Wine Festival where we can once again welcome everyone to our charming downtown and celebrate together with amazing music, art, food, wine, beer, shopping, and friendship.
2022: 3rd weekend, September 17-18 and in 2023: 4th weekend, September 23-24
In an effort to keep our local economy and our small business community healthy, we encourage anyone who is eligible to get the vaccine.
Let's keep doing the right things for our community.
About the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival
The Lafayette Art, Wine and Music Festival is perhaps the largest annual festival in Contra Costa County. In 2019, over 85,000 people strolled among the booths of art and handmade crafts, enjoying foods from our local restaurants, food vendors and food trucks as well as quality wines and microbrews, pausing to enjoy continuous music from our four stages.
Every year our single highest purpose is to make sure we produce a safe and clean environment for our attendees, our vendors and our volunteers at our community events. We will carefully follow the guidelines and protocol developed by the CDC and the California Department of Public Health. Contra Costa County officials have aligned with those agencies.
Kid Zones: Cost varies per ride/activity.
Glasses (wine/beer) and Drink Tickets are sold throughout the festival. Look for ticket booths.
Combination packages available with big discounts. You MUST BE 21 years of age to purchase glasses, drink tickets and be served!
