Event Summary

The San Franciso Bay Area is known worldwide for its fantastic weather, vibrant cultural scene and world-class events. The popular outdoor festival season around the Bay officially springs into action in Mountain View where cool, friendly, walkable Castro Street morphs into a resplendent sea of people and colorful tents for the 21st annual A la Carte & Art. Large crowds gather in Silicon Valley’s epicenter for this beloved springtime festival of the arts with two days of world-class fun in the sun.

Presented by the Mountain View Central Business Association, the popular open-air festival will feature two days of stellar live music, a fine arts and crafts show with 250 of the west coast’s top artists showing their latest handcrafted wares, artisan specialty food purveyors, health and wellness displays, an organic and green products showcase, home and garden exhibits, festive food and drink with premium wine, microbrews and margaritas, a farmers’ market with fresh seasonal produce, a multitude of kids’ amusements in the Tons of Fun Zone, and “A La Car & Art” — a classic car show. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Admission is free.
