Let's celebrate our 25th Anniversary in 2021!

Posted July 7, 2020


The 2020 Lafayette Art & Wine Festival has been cancelled.

In light of the growing new cases of COVID-19 in the Bay Area the Lafayette Chamber Board of Directors has decided, in the interest of everyone’s health and safety, to cancel this year’s Art & Wine Festival scheduled for September 26-27.

Some of you might be wondering why we waited so long to announce what now seems obvious? First, we were holding out for the miracle that just did not come in time. Losing an event like Lafayette’s annual “end of the summer party” is a tough blow to the community, the businesses, the artists and our guests that often total more than 80,000. We have all sacrificed and suffered enough. Cancelling the festival is last thing we wanted to do! We love this event as much as you. The revenue generated helps pay for our valued community services (like Trick or Treat Street and our Rock the Plaza Concert Series) and has donated well over $500K to the non-profit beneficiaries we support including our schools.

On behalf of the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and Eckerstrom Productions (who has partnered with us since the very first festival in 1996) we wish to thank you for your support and participation in this annual event. We are sorry for any problems this may create for everyone involved. Please stay safe.

We’ll be back for the 25th Annual Lafayette Art & Wine Festival on the weekend of September 18-19, 2021.  

Sincerely,
Jay Lifson, Executive Director, Lafayette Chamber of Commerce
