Norcross – Norcross Art Splash, always filled with whimsical and fun art, has a new feature this fall that is sure to tantalize the crowds. The 15th annual art celebration, now called Norcross Art Splash & Wine Festival, will showcase an outdoor wine tasting venue which highlights 60 wines “from around the world.” Cindy Flynn, one of the Art Splash & Wine Festival’s producers laughs, “Art buyers love wine, and wine drinkers love to buy art.”

The charming downtown district of Historic Norcross, Gwinnett County’s special gem, will come alive with both colorful and happy artisan booths and a large tent where shoppers can sample wines and continue to browse the artist displays.

The popular and award-winning art show will open Saturday, October 6 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday, October 7 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Wine tastings will be from noon until 4:00 pm each day. Tickets for the wine tasting tent are $35 through October 5 and then $40 during the weekend and are good for only one day. Bottles of the featured wines may be purchased at VSOP Oil & Vinegar Taproom, Farmhouse 17 and 45 South Cafe during the weekend. Featured wines by the glass can be experienced at several of the downtown restaurants.

Historic Norcross Art Splash & Wine Festival will offer continuous live entertainment on the Thrasher Park Stage, always an anticipated feature of the big Event. The energizing Kidz Zone, also in the Park, returns with jazzy rides and engaging children’s activities. A silent auction and sale filled with decorated chairs and surprises by local school students will be waiting for the highest bidders at the renowned “Chairs for Charity.” Festival cuisine and tasty food from local restaurants will be available for hungry eaters!
