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." This is the 20th year for this stellar event and it will be bigger and better than ever!
Over 15 restaurants and catering companies offer a bounty of seafood dishes and other edibles.The Wine and Microbrewed Beer Tasting is a huge draw for the festival and each year brings in about 50 companies from throughout northern California to pour their products. And the festival has an excellent wine shop where you can buy the wines you taste.
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. The festival aims to appeal to a broad range of attendees, by providing a mix of higher end fine art and craft and more moderate ranged craft work.
