An Update on the Festival

It takes a village… hundreds of volunteer hours, business and organization sponsorships, and individual donations to produce the upcoming Wrightwood Arts & Wine Festival.

Under the leadership of Patricia Farrell, everything is coming together extraordinarily well.  Large festival banners are up in four places in Wrightwood, business notifications have been sent, and media coverage has already begun, with interviews scheduled for Good Day LA, KVCR’s Lifestyles with Lillian Vasquez, and other outlets with large viewership.

The first round of press releases has gone out and been published by NewsPlus, Press Enterprise, The Sun of SB County, Inland Valley Bulletin, and others.  We will continue to send out new press releases periodically and track their publication wherever possible. If you have contacts with the media and want us to send information to them, please let us know!

After two years of pandemic postponements, this one-day, juried event with over 50 artists will feature sculpture, ceramics, woodworking, glass, jewelry, painting, watercolor, live acoustic music, poetry workshops, and wine-tasting. Wrightwood’s crowd pleasing Poetry Slam will follow at 7PM in the Community Building. The Festival and the Poetry Slam are open to the public and entry is free of charge.

We welcome questions and ideas. Contact either Pat or me.  Again, we couldn’t do this without you!  We live in a wonderful community, and we all want to make it even better. Your support of the Festival means a great deal to all those involved!
