A La Carte & Art transforms Mountain View’s downtown into a lively outdoor art festival.
The 18th annual edition will cover two days and feature 200 artists showing off their wares. One-of-a-kind items will be the norm, with paintings, sculptures, jewelry, handbags, wallets, waterfalls, wind chimes, vases, dishes, clocks and more on tap. A lineup of 10 bands will keep the sounds of Latin, classic rock, blues and jazz in the air.
Sample the edible work of artisan food purveyors – barrel-aged vinegar, honey, spices – and feast on a wide array of other tasty fare, microbrews, wine and sangria. And for fresh produce, a farmers market will be on hand.
Kids can find amusement in a climbing wall, bounce house and custom car show. It all takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on Castro Street between Church Street and Evelyn Avenue. Admission and parking are free. For more information, visit www.miramarevents.com/alacarte.
