2023 La Jolla Art & Wine Festival
The La Jolla Art and Wine Festival is an incredible fundraising event that benefits public schools in La Jolla, including TPES! Please help us make the festival a success and participate as a volunteer!
The FREE two-day La Jolla Art & Wine Festival (LJAWF) takes the best parts of the chic coastal town of La Jolla, and combines them with fine art, delectable wines, craft beers, gourmet food, and live music for an unforgettable weekend! The prestigious festival returns on Saturday, October 7th and Sunday, October 8th for its 15th year bringing over 150 dynamic artists from across the US and Mexico to exhibit their crafts and unique works of art.
The widely recognized event invites art lovers and vino enthusiasts to come together and enjoy a variety of artistic mediums including painting, sculpture, jewelry design, photography, ceramics, woodwork, mixed media, fine glass and more. Each year, classic favorites, new discoveries and up-and-coming artists take part in the festival displaying their works of art that inspire and wow attendees!
This year the festival’s goal is to surpass the $1 million mark in total donations to its beneficiary schools. These funds have supported programs such as art, music, science, physical education, technology, and on-site medical care at all five La Jolla public schools. One million dollars for one million smiles and one million thank you’s to our community of artists, attendees, sponsors and community members for helping support our public school children.
Every inch of the half-mile festival is filled with enjoyable attractions, positive energy, and juried artists showcasing their best works of art.
All profits raised benefit underfunded programs such as art, music, science, physical education, technology, and on-site medical care at local La Jolla public elementary schools (including TPES!), middle school and high school.
