The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival will kick off its sixth celebration this year on Oct. 11 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the heart of La Jolla along Girard Ave. A nightlife brew fest, expanded festival grounds, and over 200 juried artists will be some of the new additions this year. The art show and fundraiser is free and open to the public and expects to draw in a crowd of over 40,000. Local artists will showcase their finest work, including 92067 resident and jewelry designer Lizzy Levine. Lizzy makes classic jewelry pieces that appeal to the modern woman using sterling silver and Thai silver.

All proceeds from the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival will benefit underfunded school programs and on-site medical care at local public elementary and middle schools. To find out more information about the festival and activities available visit www.ljawf.com.
