Event Description

Spring is in full bloom and that means outdoor festival season is just getting underway. The Bay Area’s popular festival circuit officially kicks-off on May 4-5 in Mountain View where bustling, walkable Castro Street morphs into a moveable feast of people and colorful tents for the 17th Annual A La Carte & Art. Throngs of visitors are expected to gather in Silicon Valley’s epicenter for this beloved springtime celebration of the arts which this year honors Cinco de Mayo.

Presented by the Mountain View Central Business Association, the vibrant, open-air festival will feature two days of stellar live music, a fine arts and crafts show with 200 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, margaritas, mojitos, sangria and mimosas, 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.
