Every September in Silicon Valley, the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival brings world-class art, music, and food to downtown for what promises to be "a festival like no other." Taking place on Castro Street, Saturday and Sunday, September 7-8, 2019, this year marks the 48th anniversary of the beloved festival. Benefitting the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce, the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival is one the most anticipated festivals in the South Bay, with more than 500 artists, food vendors, craft breweries, and wineries gathering in one place.How can you get in on one of the best festivals in the Bay Area?
