Welcome to the 48th Annual Millbrae Art & Wine Festival
The Millbrae Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to our 48th Annual Millbrae Art & Wine Festival. With nearly 300 artists, 20 food vendors, sensational live entertainment on 2 stages, a Kids’ Playland full of rides and attractions, engaging sponsor presentations and 5 locations along Broadway to purchase wine, beer, sangria and even champagne - there’s something for EVERYONE!
Not only is the Art & Wine Festival a great place to shop for unique items and gourmet food treats, it’s a great way for the Chamber to showcase Millbrae’s downtown merchants and many great 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 beer tasting tent known as “Hops Haven” in the city parking lot in the 200 block of Broadway (where Millbrae Farmers' Market is held). While there, check out the “Classically Cool Car Show”. You'll find classic cars and street rods, tables where you can relax while listening to live Classic Rock 'n' Roll music performed by Gary Pellegrini’s popular ‘Loudin’ Cleer’ band.
Further down Broadway at the north end (near Meadow Glen Ave), you’ll want to make time to see the many gifted young entertainers performing at the “Streets Filled with Talent Community Stage” sponsored by South San Francisco Scavenger Company.
Proceeds from the festival help fund the Millbrae Chamber’s mission of work which includes funding many popular annual community events, funding Millbrae Chamber's high school scholarship program for Mills High School students, advocating for and representing local businesses to legislators, and continuing the Chamber’s work promoting the community and serving as a community resource.
