The beautiful Mariposa Historic Courthouse will again be the delightful setting for viewing of a variety of art, tasting great wines and enjoying tasty foods with family and friends. Live music adds to the afternoon's spice.


Fifteen wineries will pour local wines and over 30 Sierra Foothill Artists will be presenting their unique work at the festival. Sierra Foothills appellation wineries are known for their hearty reds each with their own distinct fresh aroma filled berry flavors. Most of the wineries will be represented by their proprietors and you will be able to "ask the winemaker" questions about their hand crafted vintages.
 

Among Mariposa wineries participating are Villa Spalla Winery, Butterfly Creek,  Chappell Vineyard, Silver Fox, Mount Bullion Vineyard, Mariposa Wine Company and wineries from other Foothill counties.

Grilled sandwiches,  baked goods, salads and sweets are available for purchase, plus wine, beer and  non-alchoholic beverages.
 

Where to stay for visitors to the region wanting to attend this event: Hotel availability seems somewhat limited in this popular region. We checked rates and available hotel rooms for the date of this event and at the time we check (2 months ahead), there were several that offered rooms. Best Western Yosemite Way Station Motel

was one of them and the other was Comfort Inn Mariposa. Their prices were somewhat similar. If you booked a month or two ahead, you may find a room at the popular Tenaya Lodge, a Yosemite favorite!
