27th Annual La Jolla Festival of the Arts
Two-day festival offers fine wine, food & art, entertainment, and grass under your feet.
“This is not a street fair but an elegant, high quality showcase,” reads the La Jolla Festival of the Arts’ website.
In its 27th year, La Jolla Festival of the Arts will showcase “watercolor and oil paintings; serigraph; glass, ceramic, paper, wood & metal sculptures; exquisite jewelry; photography & more” from over 200 juried artists.
Held on the grassy grounds of University of California, San Diego’s Warren Field (9500 Gilman Drive), this two-day festival takes place Saturday & Sunday, June 22 - 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
