A unique event in many ways, this festival brings excellent quality art, food, wines and beers, as well as entertainment to a rural ranch in stunning western Sonoma County wine country. Not overly crowded, plenty of parking, and for those who enjoy unusual locations, this is held in the bucolic village of Bodega, where the classic Hitchcock thriller "The Birds" was filmed.
Artists come from all parts of the state and beyond. This well juried show is a must see for fine art and craft lovers. If you enjoy food, especially seafood, you will find a plethora of choices including BBQ oysters, crab cakes, seafood gumbos, key lime calamari, and many many other options. There is plenty for the non-seafood eaters too, including vegetarian and meat options...and great desserts.
The Wine and Microbrewed Beer Tasting is probably the most popular part of the festival. 30+ wineries and 20+ microbreweries donate and pour throughout the weekend, in a large tent that turns into a wonderful party each day. Also you can buy Wines and Brews by the bottle in our Wine/Microbrew Shop, or just get a glass of either down at the booth near Main Stage..
And the entertainment is always diverse, including many dance bands at our Main Stage, jazz/bues/folk/world at our Wine Stage, and comedy/juggling, etc. at our Entertainment Stage. Our website has the full schedule by May.
Lots of kid's activities too! Jumps, Eurobungy, Ceramic painting, environmental games and more!
A portion of the proceeds benefit two wonderful non-profits. Stewards of the Coast & Redwoods work with California State Parks in the Russian River region, and the Bodega Volunteer Fire Department.
