Norcross Art Splash & Wine Festival has some incredible news – and organizers are just bursting with pride! Sunshine Artist, “America’s Premier Arts and Crafts magazine,” has chosen Norcross Art Splash & Wine Festival as one of their “200 Best” events in the country. This is a huge honor, and the City of Norcross can show off this new feather in their cap!
The 15th annual art celebration, always known for its whimsical and fun artist market, will also feature an outdoor wine tasting venue highlighting 50 wines “from around the world.”
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 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 tasting ticket times are noon and 2:00 pm on Saturday and 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm on Sunday. Tickets for the wine tasting tent are $35 through October 5 and then $55 during the weekend. 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 energetic 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!
