"The 2017 La Jolla Art + Wine Festival was my first art exhibition in California. I cannot emphasize how grateful I am for LJAWF and their support of the art community in La Jolla."


Josh Serafin

We’re so fortunate LJAWF founder, Sherry Ahern, stumbled across artist Josh Serafin many years ago. His creations transport us to a place of calm, beauty and wonder.




The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival (LJAWF) is returning to downtown La Jolla on Saturday, October 9, and Sunday, October 10, 2021.  We're so thrilled to be back! You can expect even more prestigious art, regional and international wines, craft beer and spirits, and family-friendly fun than ever before!


Featuring over 160 artists from across the U.S. and Mexico, their exquisite creations come in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, jewelry design, fine glass, ceramics, woodwork, mixed media, and photography.


This Festival is not just for the art connoisseur; The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival is also a destination where vino enthusiasts and craft beer lovers unite. The iconic wine and beer garden highlights over 40 international wineries, local craft breweries, and craft distilleries. Along with a Family Art Center, a two-day silent auction, 15 pet adoption stations and an all-star line-up of live entertainment and music, there is something for everyone.


MISSION: The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival Foundation is a non-profit organization. Its mission is to bring needed funds to La Jolla's public schools, art to the community and promote La Jolla and its merchants strengthening the vibrant community of La Jolla. All donations to the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival are tax-deductible.


All profits raised benefit underfunded programs such as art, music, science, physical education, technology and on-site medical care at all La Jolla public schools. Since its inception, the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival has donated approximately $1,000,000 to these schools for the educational benefit of more than 4000 children.

At this time, we wish you and your family's good health and well-being. We look forward to welcoming you back in October 2021!
