Come June, the picturesque North Bay town of Novato will play host to tens of thousands of people for two days of amazing festivities. The Novato Chamber of Commerce's Festival of Art, Wine & Music is a free multi-generational event that incorporates all of the best parts of living in Northern California. Always a perfect blend of unique handcrafted art, regional and imported wines, award-winning micro brews, Americana and gourmet foods, and first-rate live music on TWO stages, this Festival is the good-time place to be in June.

 Produced in collaboration with local volunteers and sponsors, this half-mile Street-Festival stretches along Historic Downtown Novato's Grant Avenue between Redwood Boulevard and 7th Street. Families, friends and community come from all over the Bay Area to take part in this epic festival. Children get the chance to create arts and crafts, and meet the hero's of Novato Police and Fire Department.

Games and attractions are not only for the children--Unique art and business displays developed by local vendors and nonprofits showcase the best that Novato and its surrounding countryside has to offer. This festival offers a unique diversity of artists as well as musicians who perform live on the festival's  TWO FULLY-BOOKED, PERFORMANCE STAGES at either end of the festival. 

As you wander the corridors of the festival, entranced by the music don't forget to grab a great bite of food and your favorite glass of wine or pint of locally and artisanally crafted beer. This festival uniquely offers patrons the opportunity to purchase 2-3 dozen different varieties of both BEER & WINE--And don't forget your commemorative pint and wine glass, a great keepsake from this unique event. 


Join us for the 34th annual Novato Festival of Art, Wine and Music Novato looks forward to meeting you!
