Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival 2020

Join Stanford Blood Center at the 44th Annual Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival.

Every year, the Almaden Valley Women’s Club presents its signature fundraising event: the Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival. All proceeds of the festival are donated to non-profit organizations and schools in our community and also support merit-based scholarships to deserving students. Set inside beautiful Almaden Lake Park, the Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival has been an Almaden Valley tradition since 1976.

The festival has a lot more to offer than just wine. You can enjoy food from gourmet food trucks and listen to live music on the main  stage all day while sampling premium beers and boutique Northern California wines. Or, shop for unique creations from local artists and craft vendors. The Kids-Zone offers a variety of crafts, carnival games and rides for the little ones.
