Celebrating its 43rd year, the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival returns to Castro Street this weekend, bringing live music, arts and crafts, dance lessons, food and drink vendors, and tons of kid-friendly activities. More 600 artists and craftspeople will be peddling their wares, which range from leather goods and hand blown glass to sculpture, and handcrafted jewelry.
For wine lovers, there's a festival within the festival: Taste of the Mountains Passport Days brings vintners from five artisanal wineries in the Santa Cruz Mountains to share their best varietals and answer questions (tickets are $45).
Those not yet of age may want to head to the Kids' Park, where high-adrenaline activities include a bungee trampoline jump and a climbing wall.
If you're snapping picks and posting them to Facebook, use the hashtag #MVAW2014. The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, and Sunday, Sept. 7; admission is free. For more information, go to mountainview.miramarevents.com or call 650-968-8378.
