2020 Los Altos Virtual Arts & Wine Festival

Downtown Los Altos Los Altos

The 2020 Los Altos Virtual Arts & Wine Festival is your online place to celebrate all that is good about our live festival, including art displays and sales, musical entertainment, kids activities and, of course, wine tasting. The virtual festival runs the month of October, with a special “live” event weekend on October 17-18. Make sure to pre-order your wine and limited edition wine glass, then plan to sit back and enjoy vintner-led tastings, alongside performances from some of our favorite Arts & Wine entertainers. The 2020 version is an online replacement for our annual Downtown Arts & Wine Festival, the Los Altos Village Association’s largest fundraising event of the year. We look forward to returning to the streets of Los Altos on July 10-11, 2021.
