Paintings in the streets

 

Where can you find 600 artists and craftspeople, 13 live bands, premium wines and microbrews, gourmet food and fun kid activities all in the same place? That would be the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival, which kicks off its 44th year this Saturday, Sept. 12, and also runs Sunday, Sept.13, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.

Aside from the booths boasting an abundance of jewelry, sculpture, woodwork, blown glass, ceramics and more, festival highlights include Salsa Sunday, with a free dance class at 1 p.m. followed by live music from salsa band Orquesta Borinquen, and the Comcast Pigskin Lounge at Mercy and Castro streets, where festivalgoers can watch the games on a giant LED screen.

At Taste of the Mountains Passport Days, ticket holders can sample wines from seven artisanal vintners based in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The Art & Wine festival takes place in downtown Mountain View on Castro Street. Admission is free; wine-tasting tickets are $45. For more information, go to mountainview.miramarevents.com or call 650-968-8378.
