Welcome to the 47th Annual Millbrae Art & Wine Festival
The Millbrae Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to our 47th Annual Millbrae Art & Wine Festival. With nearly 300 exceptional artists, 20 food vendors, sensational live entertainment, a funtastic Kids’ Playland, engaging sponsor presentations and 5 locations along Broadway to purchase your favorite beverages, there’s something for EVERYONE at this year’s festival!
Not only is the Art & Wine Festival a great place to shop for unique items and enjoy gourmet food treats, it’s also a great way for the Chamber to showcase Millbrae’s downtown merchants and restaurants. We encourage you to shop and dine in Millbrae while you’re here.
Loudin' Cleer will be playing classic rock all weekend at the Classically Cool Stage located at Broadway and LaCruz
Along the festival route, stop by our microbrew tasting tent “Hops Haven” and check out the “Classically Cool Car Show”, both located in the City parking lot (200 block of Broadway - Farmers’ Market lot). See classic cars and street rods here, sit down, relax, sample tasty, seasonal microbrews from our tasting tent while being entertained by Classic Rock music performed by Gary Pellegrini’s popular band ‘Loudin’ Cleer’.
Further down the street (at the Meadow Glen end), you’ll want to make time to see the gifted young entertainers at the “Streets Filled with Talent Community Stage” sponsored by South San Francisco Scavenger.
Proceeds from the festival help fund the Chamber’s work, financing popular community events, allowing continued advocacy and representation for local businesses, funding high school scholarship programs and continuing the Chamber’s work as a major community resource.
