In order to have your show application processed for any Festival Productions show, you must select this "event" by checking the box to the left of the application event selection page the first time you apply for an event.

The traditional “art & wine” festival has continued in Northern California cities for over 40 years. The same artist booths, food vendors, sponsor booths, beer, wine, and music appear on the same street each year in cities throughout the bay area with little distinction between neighboring cities.

 In 2016, the Foster City Art & Wine Festival broke the routine and urbanized this successful event with a new name (cityFEST) and unique new features.  Capitalizing on the increasing popularity of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) emphasis, in school curriculums and the general community, the Foster City Chamber of Commerce incorporated the theme into the event.  Areas of the event site were turned into huge interactive classrooms where attendees and whole families learned how STEAM is everywhere around us!! The results were amazing. Fair goers loved the new format. The chamber is committed to developing the theme even further and expanding the advertising and promotion to a larger geographical area.

The cityFEST takes place along Shell Blvd. Booths are set up on asphalt and may be left up overnight. Friday evening setup available. Security is provided on Saturday evening only. 

ON GOING JURY DATES:  March 1, April 1, and May 1. Please note that either a category or the entire show could close prior to a scheduled jury date. Artists should apply early to avoid getting a category full response to their late application.
