What could be more sublime than spending a pleasant summer day strolling down a cool tree-lined street, sipping a glass of delicious wine or craft beer, admiring world-class art, watching talented chefs prepare fabulous dishes, noshing succulent food and enjoying music all along the way. It's the perfect time of year to enjoy the great outdoors and the multitude of world-class festivals that make summer such a special time of year in the Bay Area.
Menlo Park's longtime signature contribution to the festival landscape is its popular annual mid-summer Connoisseurs' Marketplace, which this year celebrates its 28th year with a spectacular extravaganza on July 19-20, 2014. It promises to be a sun-splashed weekend featuring 250 of America's top artists, two days of stellar live music, engaging chefs' demos, fabulous food and drink, artisan specialty food purveyors, a collector car show, home and garden exhibits, health and wellness displays, an organic and green products showcase, and tons of fun for kids.
Presented by the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce, large crowds are expected to pour onto the downtown streets for this vibrant celebration of visual, performing and culinary arts. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Admission is free. Take a leisurely stroll down charming, tree-lined Santa Cruz Avenue and experience a world-class sampler for the senses.
