The fifth annual American Folk Art Festival 2012 will be held September 8 at the Madonna Estate winery in Napa Valley. It is being called “a very original folk art show,” blending primitive American folk art antiques with the original creations of contemporary folk artists. Gathered together are a group of the most creative and kind-spirited people to contribute from both of these worlds. The art works and finds in this show will be one-of-a-kind.
In addition, to antiques and art, Madonna Estate will also be acknowledging, with a few special surprises, their 90th Anniversary of growing grapes and making wine. At the Festival they will also release a new vintage of HalloVine wine. It is a blood-red Cabernet Sauvignon, the perfect wine for the fall holidays and most especially Halloween. Fine chocolate will be paired with the tasting of HalloVine wine. A selection of Madonna Estate’s many other varietals will also be available for tasting. Food will be available for purchase, or guests may bring their own basket and enjoy the picnic areas at the winery. There will be a $7.00 admission donation to participate in the Festival for guests that are not members of the Madonna Estate Wine Club. This donation will be given the to our non-profit event sponsor, Lucky Penny Productions Incorporated. Lucky Penny is a Napa-based theatre company which presents professional quality theatre and musical entertainment in Napa Valley and the North Bay. Prepare to enjoy a true spectacle of antiques, art, and wine in the colorful Napa Valley on September 8, 2012. We look forward to meeting you!
