The Brentwood Art Wine and Jazz Benefit Festival, hosted by the Brentwood Art Society, is a 3-day festival celebrating local artists, musicians, wine-makers and community coming together for art. The layers of the festival create a rich experience that everyone can enjoy. When you are looking for a fun way to celebrate Brentwood, this is a perfect event to attend.
Live Music at the Brentwood Art Jazz and Wine Festival
Starting in the park, you can find live music performances from Friday evening through Sunday evening. The stage in the center of City Park showcases a myriad of performances, including music groups from the local schools. Professional bands performed late into the evening, inviting concertgoers to dance the night away.
Throughout the park and community center, distinguished artists had their art on display. The Brentwood Unified School district had an art display – each of the local elementary schools showing unique art projects from their students. High school students showed off their incredible talents from inside the community center as well. Finally, Los Medanos College art students had a complete Art Show on display for the public to enjoy.
To add to the richness of the art festival were the children’s arts and crafts activities that were woven throughout the art installations. This hands-on access to art introduced budding artists to new platforms of creativity.
Beer and Wine
Beer and wine from local winemakers were readily available in the wine garden. Local winemakers, representing the Contra Costa Winemakers Association, introduced a wide variety of wine to the public. Many of the award-winning wines from the region were available for tasting, while bottles were presented for purchase as well.
The Brentwood Art Jazz and Wine Festival is A Family-Friendly Event
This event is also family-friendly. Not only is there art from local elementary and high school students on display, but you will also find all sorts of art and craft stations set up throughout the festival for your children to enjoy. Even better? The inviting play structure and refreshing splash pad are perfect for kids to cool off while you enjoy music and your favorite beverage from the shade.
The Art Society’s Greatest Fundraiser
This community event is one of the Art Society’s greatest fundraising events throughout the year. Money earned goes to support the Art Docent programs in the elementary schools and also provides for scholarships for high school students moving on to study arts in higher education settings. This means, not only do you get to enjoy local wine, art, and entertainment, the proceeds support students and art education.
