The Bodega Seafood, Art & Wine Festival turns 21 this year; it’s only right that Marin County raises its glass. You won’t have a hard time finding libations at this popular event, as 35 wineries and 20 microbreweries will be pouring all weekend. But never fear, that’s not the only kind of tasting offered at this festival. Chefs from all over Northern California will be dishing out a variety of flavors, from traditional barbeque to Lebanese cuisine.
Once your appetite is satisfied, let the music feed your soul and move your feet across the dance floor. Live bands, comedians, a ballet troupe and even a circus performance make up the entertainment queue for this year. When you’re dancing feet get tired, check out the incredibly diverse art scene, ranging from ceramics to cosmetics. Find a gift for a friend, or pick yourself up a bit of bling to wear to your next event.
There are even plenty of activities to keep kids entertained, like face-painting, rock-climbing and a color-in mural (to name a few). So bring the family along for an unforgettable weekend and discover the true wealth of NorCal’s local talent.
