The Illinois Wine & Art Festival has been a favorite for art, wine, and music enthusiasts for 15 years. The festival is held near beautiful Rend Lake in southern Illinois on the ground adjacent to the Southern Illinois Art and Artisan Center. This showcase weekend draws thousands of people to sample wines from many local and regional vineyards and to shop the artisan vendors displaying and demonstrating their fine crafts. This outdoor festival has a variety of live music performed on stage each day and there are local food vendors to satisfy every craving. Festival attendees are encouraged to bring their own pop up shade tent and lawn chairs, and to spend the gorgeous fall days enjoying the music, art, and food.
