Winnsboro Art & Wine Festival
Nov 10, 2023 - Nov 11, 2023
Winnsboro Center for the Arts is pleased to present the perfect fall weekend! Winnsboro’s 14th annual Art & Wine Festival is returning to the downtown streets of this charming East Texas town on November 10 and 11. The event allows guests to meander Winnsboro’s downtown Cultural Arts District while taking in juried artwork from 60-plus professional artists, wine sampling from a dozen regional wineries, culinary treats from local food vendors and live music. Admission to the event is FREE; hours for Friday, November 10, are 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., with wineries open until 8 p.m.; hours for Saturday, November 11, are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This year’s event features art – paintings, sculptures, jewelry, glasswork, photography, textiles and more – from professional artists locally and around the U.S. Several regional wineries will be onsite for tasting, retail sales and pairing with specialty meats, cheeses and gourmet olive oils. Food trucks and vendors will offer East Texas cuisine and specialty items such as cigars. Guests will also enjoy live music from Texas singer/songwriters.
The town of Winnsboro is the ideal setting for this annual event. In 2009, Winnsboro was one of the first Texas towns chosen by the Texas Commission for the Arts for its Cultural Arts District pilot program. The program supports communities with thriving cultural and artistic resources. Winnsboro’s Cultural Arts District includes the Winnsboro Center for the Arts, whose goal is to bring educational programming, cultural experiences and entertainment to the people of Winnsboro and surrounding East Texas communities.
“The Art & Wine Festival is the perfect way for art and wine lovers to spend a fall weekend in Texas,” said Chris Brown, co-chair for the festival. “Winnsboro offers a quaint historical downtown surrounded by deep piney woods, lakes, rolling hills and a slower way of life. We are excited to share our town and everything it offers with those looking for a weekend escape!”
