Summer fun in Twain Harte

By
From page B8 | July 26, 2013 |

It’s “Hot Fun in the Summertime” once again, as the quaint  and friendly Central Sierra village of Twain Harte becomes the center of creativity, music and fun, at the 35th Twain Harte Summer Arts and Wine Festival. This highly respected event, held since 1976, has garnered a loyal following of quality craft purchasers and music lovers.

Starting at the Twain Harte Arch at Joaquin Gully Road, nearly 100 high-caliber artists will display and sell their fine wares which include watercolors, metal sculptures, iron work, pottery, photography, candles, fine jewelry of gold  and silver, clothing and accessories, woodworks, stained glass, folk art, florals, bird houses and feeders, leather goods, soaps and lotions, garden art, kids face painter, and gourmet food products such as olive oil, Cajun spices, mustards, pastas, marinades, pepper jellies, salsa and dressings.

Festival kitchens will serve a wide variety of meals and treats — barbecued sausages, tri-tip, chicken sandwiches, brick oven pizza, snow cones, frozen fruit bars, beers, hamburgers and corn dogs. Most of the restaurants in town will also be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Artists’ booths are open from 10 a.m. each day. The booths wind around the Eproson House, down Cedar Drive and Joaquin Gully.

Entertainment will run continuously on the Main Stage and features The Little Fuller Band with original folk-rock music on July 27, the Zydeco, blues and rock music of Tom Rigney and Flambeau on July 28 and Captain Jack Spareribs’ juggling, ventriloquism and magic on both days.

There will be wine tasting both days with Wines in the Pines. A Twain Harte tradition for approximately 28 years, this wine tasting event showcases vintners from Amador, Calaveras, Mendocino, Sonoma, Stanislaus and Tuolumne Counties in downtown Twain Harte, along with olive oils and fine finger foods provided by Black Oak Casino, The Jamestown Olive Oil Company and area restaurants.

Bring $15 to purchase a commemorative wine glass with tasting booklet, and you are set to go from noon to 3 p.m. while enjoying live tunes by local musicians Jana & Leroy.

Festivities for this Twain Harte Summer Arts & Wine Festival 2013 are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. Public parking is located at Twain Harte School.
