Start your great art hunt by visiting our galleries, art hot spots, and artist booths. You do not need a ticket to visit the art locations and free maps will be available at AAI Central located at the Courtyard Gallery, 54240 Ridgeview Drive.
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, crackers and grapes. Best of all, ticket holders will get the opportunity to sip great wine while mingling with other wine and art enthusiasts. Non-drinking friends may join you in the wine pouring areas without a ticket. We discourage bringing children and pets.
We want you to enjoy all that Idyllwild has to offer, so will have free shuttles running around the village starting at 11am, finishing at 6pm.
Group discounts apply for groups of 15 or more when tickets are purchased at the same time. Groups that need assistance are asked to contact us at 562 822 5479 to coordinate logistics.
The location for "AAI Central" is the Courtyard Gallery, 54240 Ridgeview Drive (behind the Shell Station). We will open at 10am. Just follow the crowd and signs to pick up your glasses and wrist bands before visiting our galleries and art hot spots. Tickets may be purchased here, too. Shuttles will start from this location.

All roads to Idyllwild are now open with only one exception, the 243 at Banning to Idyllwild. However, just follow I-10 to the Monterey Road exit that turns into the 74 then the 243 into Idyllwild. Or you can go via San Jacinto, using Hwy 79 off the I-10. It's worth the drive!
