Mexico Beach Art & Wine Festival

October 11, 2014

The 16th Annual Mexico Beach Art & Wine Festival, held at the Driftwood Inn, will be an afternoon full of artists displaying their work, cash bar featuring spectacular wines and beers, live and silent auction, and live entertainment.  This jury show will offer prizes to artists excelling in their medium.  This is not a wine tasting event.  Come browse Saturday, October 11, local and regional artwork while enjoying the view of beautiful Mexico Beach.

Festival opens at 2pm and admission is $5.00 per person.  Artists will have their work on display and will be available for purchase.  This is a great time to snag that one of a kind piece and display it in your beach home or take back with you as a reminder of the wonderful time spent in Mexico Beach.  Be sure to check out the silent auction tables that will feature original pieces from participating artists as well as local merchants.  The silent auction will open at 2pm, when the festival opens.

Award ceremony will begin around 3pm and will award first and second place in each division as well as Best in Show.  Be sure to stick around for our live auction that will feature unique artwork.  The live auction will begin at 5pm.

The commemorative wine glass and poster will be available for purchase during the festival.  This festival is put on by the Special Events for Mexico Beach and is a fundraiser for the Best Blast on the Beach Independence Day Celebration.

Come enjoy beautiful artwork, live music, food and wine!  Make your plans today to attend this annual event which brings in artists from all over!
