Bodega Seafood, Art & Wine
Festival Brings Delicious to Sonoma County

popular festivals in the Bay Area, attracting thousands of

Bodega, California -
Art & Wine Festival — Northern California’s largest seafood
feast— will celebrate its 19th year August 24 and 25, 2013.
This annual benefit is one of the most popular festivals in the
Bay Area, attracting thousands of foodies, art aficionados, wine
and beer connoisseurs and music lovers to picturesque Watts
Ranch in the village of Bodega, where Alfred Hitchcock filmed
his classic thriller, “The Birds.”
More than 45 wineries and microbreweries will pour wines and
beers, while 15 restaurants and catering companies offer a
bounty of seafood classics, including barbecued oysters, crab
cakes, Key Lime calamari, clam chowder and other delicacies.
Vegetarian options, chicken, and meat dishes will also be
available, as will a bevy of luscious sweet treats.
The quality of the art and fine craft is unrivaled in Sonoma
County and beyond. This juried show attracts artisans from
throughout California and other parts of the country.
In addition to seafood, wine, beer and art, the festival has
three stages with a variety of musical entertainment, which
features some of the best local and national performers in
blues, jazz, world beat, Latin, Zydeco, as well as comedy,
juggling and other non-musical performances.
The festival emphasis on delicious food and wonderful wines
extends beyond the food booths and Tasting Tent. Visit our large
food product tent, where local food producers sample and sell
fantastic treats like toffees, baked goods, olives, spices, and
much more. There will also be for the first time this year a
wine store where wines being poured in the Tasting Tent will be
available for sale at the festival itself.
Proceeds from the event will support two important causes —
Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, which works in
partnership with the California State Parks Foundation to
provide environmental stewardship programs, and the Bodega
Volunteer Fire Department.
Festival hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, August
24, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, August 25.
Admission is $12 in advance for adults and free for children
less than 12 years of age. Watts Ranch is located at 16855
Bodega Highway in the village of Bodega. For additional
