About the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival
Saturday, Sept. 23, 2023 (10am–7pm) & Sunday, Sept. 24, 2023 (10am–6pm)
The Lafayette Art & Wine Festival is perhaps the largest annual festival in Contra Costa County. In 2022, over 65,000 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 protocols developed by the Lafayette Police Department, CDC and the California Department of Public Health.
