Pittsburg Art & Wine Festival to Move Venues in 2017
The Pittsburg Art & Wine Festival started off small in 2013, taking place on the Compress St ally that sits between Quitman St. and West Church St. The success of that first event inspired the festival committee to look for a new and larger location for the next year’s festival. In 2014 the event moved across the street to three empty lots that sit directly on Main Street. The festival has been held at this location for the last 3 years, but year after year, Pittsburg Art & Wine brings in more vendors and attendees. The event has had so much success that this year, the fifth year, the event will be moving again. This decision was carefully based on feedback from vendors, the majority stating their number one issue with the festival last year was the location not having enough space. The festival continues to grow with new wineries and artists being added every year.
This year we will be moving Pittsburg Art & Wine Festival to North Ave. and Marshall Streets surrounding the newly constructed Pilgrim Plaza. After seeing the success of the Home for the Holidays Christmas event in this same location, it was the obvious new location for the event to the committee. In the future, the committee will continue to ask for feedback and take a critical look at the location and space and see if it is meeting the needs of the festival and its growth or if further changes need to be made
