  • ALPINE, CALIFORNIA – The first-ever Spring Art & Music Festival presented by Viejas Casino & Resort, Saturday, April 13, 2019, will feature a diverse line-up of artistic offerings including performances by local musicians, a judged art competition, and children’s art activities. “Alpine is bursting with creative people,” said Chamber Executive Director, Alex Ward. “But until now there has not been a good outlet for these folks to showcase their talents. The Spring Art & Music Festival is our solution to that problem.” This event will be free and open to everyone starting at 10:00 a.m. and going until 7:00 p.m.

    The Spring Art & Music Festival is a new kind of experience designed to captivate, stimulate, and inspire visitors with intimate performances by local musicians and culturally relevant fine art. Conveniently located at the Alpine Community Center (1830 Alpine Blvd.) the Festival is set to completely takeover the grounds. Inside the community center will be three art galleries. Two galleries will house fine art entered into judged contests with cash prizes; one for adult artists and one for youth artists. The third gallery will house fine art and crafts for sale to the public. Join us at the main stage at 2:00pm when we announce the winners of this year’s art show!

    Adjacent to the community center, musicians will perform on the outdoor stage in the park. We’re excited to welcome, among others, Miles Moynier, a local Guitarist who performs a variety of solo instrumental guitar music including Nuevo Flamenco, Jazz, Classical and Popular music. He currently has six CDs on iTunes and Amazon.com. Timeless Tunes with Patee and Gary Spurlock will be performing Cabaret style music and great selections from the legendary Frank Sinatra. Brendan Prout will also be performing with his band. Prout is a local minister at Quest Church San Diego. Prout says, “This is going to be a great event! Nothing is better at bringing people together than music, art and great food!”

    Flanking the park will be food and craft vendors. Local favorites, La Birrieria, Quick Stop Grill, Just Smother It, Fat Side Up BBQ, and Kali Foods will be serving up delicious food in a variety of cuisines. After a good meal, visitors can browse the assortment of handcrafted jewelry, soaps, and Boho clothing vendors. There’s sure to be something special for everyone!

    The centerpiece of the outdoor festival experience will be the beer and wine garden sponsored by Alpine Beer Company and Granite Lion Cellars. Visitors to the beverage garden will have their pick of four unique Alpine Beer Co. brews: Duet, HFS, Irish Red, or Emerson and a selection of red and white wine varieties grown right here in the Backcountry! Join us April 13 to sip, shop, and savor the arts!
