Sip, stroll and shop your way around the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk when it turns into an artist and wine lover’s paradise on Sunday, Nov. 13, at the 2022 Pensacola Beach Art & Wine Festival.
“The Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce is excited to welcome back the Art and Wine Festival to Pensacola Beach and thankful to be able to showcase our local artist community once again,” said Meg Peltier, president and CEO of the Chamber.
Starting at 11 a.m. and lasting until 4 p.m., the festival brings together about 25-30 local artists and more than 30 wine selections from three national wine distributors, all in one place.
The festival is free to the public, however to participate in the wine tastings festivalgoers must purchase a ticket and receive a wristband. Wine tastings will begin at 1 p.m. and last until 3 p.m. only. Featured wines will be available for purchase at the Aloha Wine & Liquor booth on the boardwalk.
Blue Levee Band will get the crowds moving and grooving with their energetic sound playing cover hits and blues music from noon until 4 p.m. on the Quietwater Shell stage.
Advance tickets for the tastings are $40 per ticket and can be purchased here through Friday, Nov. 11. A select number of tickets will be available for purchase for $45 the day of the event.
“We invite everyone to come out and spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon strolling the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk, enjoying the sunshine and cool, fall air while sampling wines and perusing the works of some of the Gulf Coast’s most talented artists,” said Peltier.
Interested in setting up an artist booth at the event? The selection committee is seeking 25-30 artists to sell original works of art. Applications can be downloaded from the chamber’s website here. Deadline for applying is October 30. All entries are $75 for a 10 x 10-foot tent space.
