I pulled this one from our archives. We visited this art fair nestled in the beautiful redwoods of California back in 2014 before we left for Texas. Not only is it an exquisite art fair in a beautiful setting it is also free. There is no admission charge or parking charge.
This fair is set up on Labor Day weekend each year. Located along Skyline Boulevard up in the hills between Silicon Valley and San Francisco, CA. You park along the narrow road where you can and then a trolley will pick you up at various stops along the way.
One of the first sites you will find is an elegant tribute to the local firefighters with a piece from the World Trade Center.
The location could not be more beautiful. There are various artisans showing off their wares surrounded by tall redwood trees. These were high quality artisans showing art, furniture, sculptures, etc.
One of the great elements to this fair is that you get to enjoy some great artwork as well as some great nature. Either way it is a serene setting to walk through and enjoy.
Once you are done with the fair the drive is an additional benefit as it travels along the mountain ridge. The view above looks out to the east where you can get a glimpse of Silicon Valley below and the hills beyond.
The view off to the west is gorgeous as well. The road in the distance is highway 92 which heads towards Half Moon Bay along the coast. Another beautiful drive in itself.
If you are in the Bay Area during this time of the year we highly recommend attending. This is one event that is worth the drive just for the walk to view amazing artistry among some gorgeous nature.
