Welcome to our 19th Annual Art Walk and Wine Tasting.  Our most popular fundraiser of the year will host 18 of Southern California's favorite wineries at art locations around Idyllwild.  We sold out last year, anticipate another stellar year, and have not increased the number of available tickets, so we recommend that wine enthusiasts purchase tickets before September 24th to take advantage of lower ticket prices.  

There are several levels of ticket prices for members and non-members.  AAI members receive discounts on tickets.  All tickets for the wine tasting will increase in price at 5pm on September 24th by $5 per ticket.  Day of tickets, if there are any left, will be $50 each regardless of quantity.  Online sales will close October 5th.  Click the "Register" button at the bottom left of this page to purchase tickets.

We want you to enjoy all that Idyllwild has to offer, so will have free shuttles running around the village starting at 10am.  Start your great art hunt by visiting our gallerieshot spots, and artist booths.  You do not need a ticket to visit the art locations and free maps will be available at our kiosk in the middle of town.   
Continue your Idyllwild experience with wine tasting from 2pm-5pm.  A ticket is required for the tastings, which includes a keepsake wine glass, entertainment by local musicians, and a variety of cheese and crackers.  Best of all, ticket holders will get the opportunity to sip great wine while mingling with other wine and art enthusiasts.
The 18 wineries that will be pouring are:

Group discounts apply for groups of 15 or more when tickets are purchased at the same time prior to 10pm on October 5th. Groups that need assistance are asked to contact us at 951-692-6135 to coordinate logistics. 

We will be set up in the middle of town on North Circle Drive starting at 10am.  Just follow the crowd and signs to pick up your glasses and wrist bands before visiting our galleries and art hot spots.
