The Bay Area is back and packed with a full weekend of fun events. A lot of things are happening close to Home, so if you live in the South Bay... get ready!
Out in downtown this weekend if you head to the Sofa District you can check out (e)merge- the Zero1 street festival tonight starting at 6:00pm. It is a street festival focused specifically on showcasing work by emerging artists! They are filling streets city blocks of the SoFA District along South 1st Street. Plus you can check out the other art galleries too! Great inspiration here people... & if you cant get out there tonight for the event... the artwork will remain up all weekend for your viewing pleasures.
It's no secret around here that I have fallen for wine, see here and here, and after a fun art and wine festival in Mountain View last weekend... lets do it again in Santa Clara at Central Park. The Santa Clara Art and Wine Festival will be held Saturday and Sunday and there will be over 175 vendors at the event.
Pleasanton will also be having their 40th Harvest Festival at the Alameda County Fairgrounds. This is a huge event and if you are into the little decorations and artsy items... there will be over 24,000 to choose from.
Little Saratoga has big things happening this Sunday with a Village Block Party and Grape Stomp. The event will have three stages with over 22 bands, dancers, some of the best wineries including Kathryn Kennedy, artisan beer, announcing Citizen of the Year, and lots of yummy gourmet food. Plus..[how cool is this] the master of ceremonies will be a robot!!
If you want to head over to the coast, you should hit up Santa Cruz for their Greek Festival... I don't know about you, but if I know there will be good Greek Food... I don't mind driving for it. And with a ton of different vendors to choose from, you're bound to find something you like. Aside from you regular line-up of drinks there will also be a taverna serving traditional Greek spirits. And after you feast enjoy your time while the Kafenio whips up authentic Greek Frappe in the traditional style of Greek cafes. YUM
And if you have tons of energy and want a little more activity than the other events, you should head to Foster City and enjoy their Community Bike Ride. It is happening on Sunday and the ride begins at Boothbay Park at 10:00am. Families and individuals are invited to participate in the annual 2.5 or get a little adventurous with the 11 mile ride.
