Live & Local! Two Days of Music Slated at Downtown Art & Wine Faire


The annual Art & Wine Festival comes to Downtown Alameda this year on Saturday and Sunday, July 28 and 29. The Island’s largest event has been a family tradition for 34 years. To celebrate we have added a new local stage with live music from performers around the Island. 
Special thanks to Jim and Lynn Parodi and all the performers for making this year extra special.
The Downtown Alameda Art & Wine Faire is presented by the Downtown Alameda Business Association as a fundraiser for the district. Proceeds help keep Downtown Alameda clean, green and safe. Come see what’s new at the Art & Wine Faire and stay to enjoy all that Downtown Alameda has to offer.
