Last weekend, Clint and I were fortunate enough to catch the Los Gatos’ Fiesta de Artes organized by the Kiwanis Club. The annual event is similar to the many art & wine festivals that hit the Bay Area during the warm season. The event took place August 16-17 from 10 am – 6 pm and admission is free.
There was great food from a selection of Los Gatos restaurants with proceeds going to support The Teen Center, live music, wine and of course unique art work and crafts.
There was a booth promoting El Dorado Ranch, a development near San Felipe on the Baja Peninsula. One gets there by flying into LAX or San Diego and driving down (~2 hours). We got some additional information and were invited to an informational dinner late August. We may check it out and report on the details of this development.
The season for art & wine festivals is not over. There are several coming up in September and October including:
Sept 6-7: Mountain View Art & Wine Festival, Castro Street, Mt. View
