Roseville Art & Wine Festival on tap October 18

articles_082808a.gifPlacer Valley Tourism is producing a major October wine and art festival, combining music, art exhibits, wine-tasting and food, in a gala downtown Roseville celebration.  It’s the 1st Annual KOBRA Crush 29 Wine & Art Festival, presented by Thunder Valley Casino.  The party, set for Saturday, Oct. 18, will take place from 5 to 10 p.m. at Roseville’s Civic Center Plaza and on closed-off portions of Vernon and Grant Streets.

Three months into planning the event, organizers have endeavored to bring music, the arts and good times together for a major street party.  As many as 50 professional artists will show their works, offering many pieces for sale. Ten Placer County wineries will serve tastings of their finest vintages. Internationally renowned 3D muralist Greg Brown will be featured as he completes a mural near the Blue Line Gallery.

Four party bands— HIP SERVICE, Boys Nite Out, Steelin’ Dan, and the Jerry Martini Trio—will provide continuous musical entertainment from the main stage. The kitchens of the upscale Crush 29 will provide food in two venues—a Wine Café and a MicroBrew Garden.

Mike Alizadeh, senior vice president, KOBRA Properties, says, “This event will be a giant party of the highest quality, with great wine, art and music.  The food will come from our Crush 29 kitchens.  We expect this to be the party of the year in South Placer County.”  He predicted a bright outlook for the event: “In the future, we believe this wine and art festival will become a major attraction that will last multiple days, bringing great focus to the quality of our community. Our family and businesses are thrilled to celebrate the outstanding quality of Placer wines and Placer art by being the major sponsors of the 1st Annual KOBRA Crush 29 Wine & Art Festival.”

Greg Van Dusen, Placer Valley Tourism’s CEO, said the two major sponsors—KOBRA Properties and Thunder Valley Casino—give instant credibility to the first-time event.   “We want to tell the world about the quality of Placer wines and artists,“ he said. “This huge party will be a great opportunity to stimulate tourism and support our regional wine and art industries.”

Advance tickets are priced at $30.  Information on tickets and bus shuttle packages can be found by by phoning 800-773-0522.  Community or non-profit groups can utilize the event as a fund-raiser.  They can get information by phoning 916-773-5400.
