Maude Kerns Art Center Presents
Art and the Vineyard Festival 2019
Thursday, July 4 – Saturday, July 6
The Maude Kerns Art Center presents the 36th annual Art and the Vineyard Festival, the premier art and wine festival of the Southern Willamette Valley, at Alton Baker Park in Eugene on Thursday, July 4 through Saturday, July 6. The Art and the Vineyard Festival, a fundraiser for the non-profit Maude Kerns Art Center, supports the Center’s year-long Exhibits and Education programs.
Art and the Vineyard attracts 15,000 visitors over the 3-day event, which features more than 90 artists from seven states in the Artists’ Marketplace and over 20 artists in Art For Your Garden, as well as Oregon vineyards in the Wine Court, an International Food Court, a Youth Art Arena and Stage, and Main Stage entertainment all three days. Freedom Festival Fireworks light up the skies over Alton Baker Park on July 4th.
New this year is the display of four interactive sculptures/installations that enliven the Festival site. Another special attraction is a non-competitive Plein-Air Paint-Out celebrating the artistic community on Saturday, July 6, starting at 11 am.
Headliners are the High Street Band, the ultimate party band, on July 4th; the Portland band, Red Bird, performing blues, jazz, soul, and Americana on Friday, July 5th; and Eugene’s own high energy Americana, pop, and soul grass band, The Sugar Beets, on Saturday, July 6th. The Oregon Bach Festival’s Stangeland Family Youth Choral Academy performs at 7:15 pm on July 4th.
