Millbrae Art & Wine Festival is considered one of the premier community festivals in Northern California. With attendance in excess of 100,000 every year, and an exceptional lineup that features 250 arts and crafts vendors, 25 food purveyors, and stellar music and entertainment for grown-ups and kids, the festival is the largest annual fund-raiser for the Millbrae Chamber.

Millbrae’s 21,000 residents live quietly in tidy neighborhoods gently cradled in the sun-warmed hills that separate the Pacific Ocean from the San Francisco Bay. This is land that long ago was graced by dairy farms and the summer homes of some of San Francisco’s wealthiest families, including the fabulous estate of Ogden Mills.

Incorporated in January 1948, Millbrae’s economic community has been stable for over two decades with an average of 400 businesses, including several major hotels and branch offices of leading financial institutions. Despite being one of the county’s smaller cities, it boasts regional political clout. The churches and schools reflect local pride and the charming Main Street and central business district is so “typical” that it could easily serve as a small town movie set.
