Art, wine, music, dance, and good vibes…all in the enchanting beach-side setting of Capitola Village…summer’s last hurrah, and truly a weekend in paradise!
Stroll the Festival sipping exceptional wines from the Santa Cruz Mountains while admiring the artistic talents of over 100 fine artists. Sway to the rock n roll sounds of The Lost Boys featuring James Durbin, and funky grooves from Extra Large. Be inspired by local dance groups, and keep a look out for The Great Morgani, accordionist extraordinaire. A 20th anniversary commemoration featuring a procession led by Santa Cruz Pipes & Drums followed by first responders, and a special performance by James Durbin will take place on Saturday in remembrance of the victims of 9/11, and honoring first responders, our heroes on the front lines.
The festival is Admission Free! Wine tasting requires the purchase of a 2021 festival glass ($15) and tasting tokens ($2 each). Tastings vary based on wine of choosing.
Free parking and shuttle provided at the Capitola Mall on 41st Avenue. Ride your bike to the festival and park in the free Bike Valet Parking at the festival entrance.
For the safety and wellbeing of all, we will follow state and local COVID-19 guidelines as recommended by the CDC at the time of the festival. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated prior to attending the festival. Those not vaccinated are encouraged to wear a mask.
Hosted by the Capitola-Soquel Chamber of Commerce, the festival is a fundraiser supporting the chamber, a 501 (c)(6) nonprofit organization, and the school and community groups that assist with the production of the festival. We are grateful to our faithful volunteers that help in more ways than we can count. It takes a village, and we’re grateful for ours.
