La Jolla Art & Wine Festival is this weekend

The La Jolla Art Wine Festival returns to downtown La Jolla for a second year. Last year’s inaugural festival featured over 100 fine artists, drew nearly 20,000 attendees and returned nearly $40,000 to area schools. The Festival will take place in downtown La Jolla on upper Girard Avenue, between Pearl and Genter and at the La Jolla Elementary School playground. The Open Aire Market will not take place during the Festival .

The artists and entertainers have been confirmed for the 2010 Festival. Organizers are thrilled at the enhancements in quality and quantity for second year of this fall event. All 140 artists were selected by a jury, which reviewed more than double the number of applications from last year. The selections reflect the Festival’s commitment to explore the world of emerging established artists and provided 10 scholarships to Emerging artists. This year’s festival will feature the Surfside Wine Beer Garden presented by BBC, Live Entertainment at the NightDay Stage, the Ranch Coast Gourmet Marketplace, CVS Silent Auction and Geppetto’s Family Art Center.

The event donates all proceeds to key programs at three area public schools: La Jolla, Torrey Pines, and Bird Rock Elementary. These commonly underfunded programs include art, music, science, physical education, technology, and on-site medical care by a school nurse.
