OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. — The Village at Squaw Valley this weekend will welcome the return of the popular Art, Wine and Music Festival.

The annual two-day Art, Wine & Music Festival (this year on Saturday and Sunday, July 9-10) features wine tasting from California wineries, three performance stages with live music, and restaurants, shops and walkways lined with fine art booths and exhibits.

All proceeds from the event benefit Achieve Tahoe, whose mission is to provide affordable inclusive physical and recreational activities that build health and confidence. Last year’s festival raised over $15,000 for Achieve Tahoe.

“We’re thrilled to see The Village come alive this July with the excitement of artists, musicians and wineries from across California,” said Caroline Ross, executive director for the Squaw Village Neighbourhood Company. “The Art, Wine and Music Festival is a vibrant gathering, and we’re proud to partner with Achieve Tahoe, where all proceeds from the event will go toward providing adaptive sports and recreation resources for people with disabilities.”

Wine tasting will take place Saturday and Sunday from 2-5 p.m. Participating California wineries include: Lumen Wine Co., Nuclear Wine Co., Spicy Vines, The Henry Wine Group and Wrath Winery.

Live musical performances featuring music genres from around the world will take place Saturday and Sunday for the duration of the festival, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Artists include, among others, Karamo Susso Band, World Beatnix, Milton Merlos and New World Jazz Project.
