Sip, stroll and shop your way around the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk when it turns into an artist and wine lover’s paradise on Sunday, Nov. 10, at the 2019 Pensacola Beach Art & Wine Festival.
“The Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce invites everyone to come out and spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon strolling the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk, enjoying the sunshine and cool, fall air while sampling wines and perusing the works of some of the Gulf Coast’s most talented artists,” said Alison Westmoreland, director of the Chamber.
Starting at 11 a.m. and lasting until 4 p.m., the festival brings together about 25 local artists and more than 30 wine selections, all in one place. Wine tastings will begin at noon and last until 3 p.m. Featured wines will be available for purchase at Lucas’ Where Locals Go restaurant on the boardwalk.
Local party band, Six Piece Suits, will get the crowds moving and grooving with their energetic, powerhouse sound playing popular hits from noon til 4 p.m. on the Quietwater Shell stage.
The festival is free to the public, however to participate in the wine tastings festivalgoers must purchase a ticket and receive a wristband.
Advance tickets for the tastings are $30 per ticket or $50 for a pair, and can be purchased here through Friday, Nov. 8. A select number of tickets will be available for purchase for $35 the day of the event.
Interested in setting up an artist booth at the event? The selection committee is seeking 25 artists to sell original works of art. Applications can be downloaded from the chamber’s website here. Deadline for applying is October 30. All entries are $75 for a 10 x 10-foot tent space.
