Event Description

Maude Kerns Art Center presents the 27th Annual Art and the Vineyard July 2, 3 & 4 in Eugene's Alton Baker Park. Over 150 artists from six states participate in the Artists'Marketplace, Art for Your Garden, and Special Attractions areas. More than 20 vineyards serve fine Oregon wine and an International Food Court provides a delectable array of our area's finest flavors. The Youth Art Arena offers hands-on, family-friendly activities, and the Youth Stage provides entertainment for the younger crowd. At the 2010 Art and the Vineyard Festival, the Maude Kerns Art Center once again brings the Oregon Bach Festival (OBF) to the Main Stage. Main Stage entertainment encompasses the full range of sounds from the jazz,folk, pop, and punk rhythms of Sally Ford and the Sound Outside (Willamette Week's "Best Band 2010"), Tyler Fortier (voted Eugene Weekly's "Next Best Thing"), to the memorable songs of the Beatles perfomed by Beatles tribute band, Blackbird. On the evening of July 4th, three renowned Russian musicians of Oregon Bach Festival's Trio Voronezh perform virtuoso renditions of classical, folk, and contemporary music on the Main Stage leading into a spectacular display of Freedom Festival fireworks in the skies above Alton Baker Park. Admission is $6 per day for adults and $15 for a three-day pass; children ages 6-11 are $1; children under 6 years old are free. Parking is available for $3/car at Alton Baker Park on July 2nd and 3rd. The Center for Appropriate Transport provides valet bicycle parking during the entire festival.
