The family friendly 13th annual Brentwood Art, Wine and Jazz Festival is being held this Saturday and Sunday at the Streets of Brentwood. The event is aimed at bringing together local vintners, local artists from multiple disciplines, and some of the Bay Area’s finest musicians representative of multiple genres of Jazz.
The event is a family affair where children are welcome and even a children’s area is set up to include clay, painting at easels. A wall of art will be displayed to showcase creations from students of the Brentwood Union School District as well as a sand sculpture and chalk art by local high school students.
The event is free of charge and is the largest annual fundraiser of the Brentwood Art Society, which supports and contributes to continuing arts programs and events in the community, including the Art Docent program at all schools of the Brentwood Union School District, scholarships to graduating Seniors, summer Art Walk Events, the Artists Open Studio Tour, Student Art Show, Broadway Under the Stars theater performances, and a monthly Open Mic hosted by the city’s poet laureate, Kati Short.
Forty plus vendors featured original pieces by local artists who worked in varied media including oil, watercolor, pencil, clay, bronze, and multi-media, forty plus vendors in all.
Wine at the Fountain
A host of local vintners and wineries introduced you to some of the award winning wines that are produced right here in our own community, including Hannah Nicole Vineyards, Bloomfield Vineyards, Tamayo Family Vineyards, J Doran Vineyards, and Cline Cellars. For those who preferred a micro-brew, Black Diamond Brewery and BJ’s Restaurant and Brewery provided cold brews.
Jazz on the Stage
Performers from among the internationally acclaimed musical talents that we are blessed to have reside in our Northern California Area took the stage to provide outstanding music during the event.
