Art and Wine Faire 2023 – The Famous Grand Annual Faire of San Carlos

October 7 @ 8:00 am - October 8 @ 9:00 pm

The Peninsula’s favorite faire returns October 7th & 8th, 2023! Join us for the 31st San Carlos Art and Wine Faire!

150+ artists, beer and wine, food, and entertainment on three stages. The Art and Wine Faire is one of the Peninsula’s Premier Fall Festivals, attracting over 40,000 people every year. During the first weekend of October, parts of San Carlos Avenue and Laurel Street are closed and turned into a big weekend market where all sorts of products and services are displayed in stalls; like artisan food and wine, art and novelty items, unique services like chiropractic therapy, furniture- making, volunteer programs, and others – practically anything special in San Carlos they’d like to present to the community. This faire is also a great way for start-ups to introduce themselves to people.

And where would the fair be without the music? Throughout the weekend, musicians and bands are lined up to take the different stages scattered in the area while people of all ages would be dancing to their favorite tunes.

Family Fun Zone with lots of hands-on activities for the kids are also present in different locations. People are also encouraged to join communal activties like for example murale paintings and others.

This faire, like other annual events in San Carlos, would not be possible without the strength and spirit of the volunteers.
