2022 Ramona Art and Wine Festival Opens Applications for Sponsors, Wineries, Artists, and Vendors
Ramona, Calif., March 31, 2022 – The Ramona Art and Wine Festival has opened applications for Sponsors, Wineries, Artists and Vendors to participate in the 2022 Festival. Celebrating its 10th year, the Festival will be held on November 5th, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., returning to its pre-Covid one-day event at Begent Ranch, 18528 Highland Valley Road, Ramona, CA.
The Festival will focus on fine art, music, and the wine industry in the area. It will also showcase the work of local chefs responding to the demand for upscale fine foods to pair with the area’s award-winning wines. Wineries will provide tastes of their wine. Local artists will display and sell their fine art. And the Festival will have its popular Painted Barrel Art Auction, adding deconstructed wine barrel art and furniture to the event.
The exposure that the Festival provides benefits both exhibitors and visitors as it publicizes Ramona as an art and wine community.
Wineries: The Festival offers an opportunity for wineries to exhibit and provide tastes of their wines to newcomers. The 2022 venue enables the expansion of the number of wineries who can participate this year. One winery will receive additional exposure by accommodating at least 80 people to host the VIP Gala on Friday evening October 28th.

Artists: Artists have several opportunities to participate in the Festival, including as: a booth artist, wine barrel artist, and/or commemorative artist (or all three.) This year’s wine barrels—which will be auctioned at the Festival—will be recrafted into furniture art, such as chairs, cabinets, shelves, desk, or wall art. Wood workers are also encouraged to apply.
Artists are encouraged to submit applications to be entered into the commemorative art contest. The selected art for our 10th annual Festival will be used for the cover of our Program, announced in a press release, and entered into our Festival “Hall of Fame.”

In addition to the sponsorship levels and benefits, there are opportunities to host Painted Wine Barrel Art at a business for weeks in advance of the auction, or to sponsor the VIP Reception the weekend before the Festival.
