Wine Art & Music Festival
Join us for one of the most relaxing and fun wine festivals on the coast!
Whether your interest is fine art, wine tasting, experiencing gourmet treats or gazing out over the majestic Pacific Ocean, the 26th Annual Art, Wine and Music Festival hosted by America’s Wild Rivers Coast and Gold Beach Chamber of Commerce is the place to be. This year’s event will once again be held at the Event Center on the Beach in Gold Beach, just a short walk away from one of Oregon’s finest beaches. Watch for more details to follow.
The two-day event, scheduled for May 18 and 19, promises to be better than ever. Wine connoisseurs know that Oregon is producing some of the finest wines in the country, many of them from the Umpqua Valley. The exciting news is that sixteen of them will be showcased for your tasting at this venue.
One admission ticket is good for the entire two-day venue. You may need all that time to fully experience everything the venue has to offer. Come early and take your time visiting with each winery representative. Be sure to ask Henry Estate Winery about their practice of holding back wines from market for as many as two years longer than most other wineries to ensure the proper balance and character known as their signature. At River’s Edge Winery, ask about their low-tech, hands-on approach utilizing small batch fermentation and barrel aging. Participating wineries have fascinating histories and stories to tell. After tasting, grab your favorite glass of wine and browse through the many art displays offered by some of the finest galleries and artists in the region. Or, just sit and relax and enjoy the music.
Not into wines? For the fifth year in a row, the Brew Pub will be open on the second level of the Docia Sweet building featuring special brews , live music will be available in the courtyard for your listening pleasure and the Garden Club Floral Show will be joining the lineup of fun and interesting events added to the festival.
Admission for the two-day event is only $10.00 and includes a commemorative, limited-edition wine glass (if you are one of the first 500 attendees), a complimentary wine tasting and a free raffle ticket. Saturday hours are 11:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m. and Sunday hours are 12:00 noon through 5:00 p.m. Spend a fabulous weekend in beautiful Gold Beach, Oregon at this year’s festival.
