~~ARTS & CRAFTS FAIR FAQ’s ~~

  • How often do you have your Annual Arts & Crafts Fair?
    • Our fair is held bi-annually, every Mother’s Day Weekend and the 3rd or 4th weekend in October.
  • Is there plenty of Handicapped parking for the event?
    • Yes! We utilize our entire main parking lot (Cabernet) by our office for handicapped parking spaces. Handicapped placards MUST be visible.
  • Do you have food vendors at the fairs?
    • Besides The Kitchen and Manzanita Roasting Co., our permanent cafe and coffee shop, we have an entire food court for the fair in our Rosario’s Event area in the East side of the winery. Everything from Mexican food to Greek to BBQ. Something for everyone!
  • Do you still have wine tasting during the fair? And what about non-alcoholic beverages?
    • Definitely! And to make it easier for guests to get a tasting, glass or bottle of their favorite wines, we have a second wine bar, that also serves Sangria, located in the Courtyard.
    • A wine bar is also located in Rosario’s pavilion also on the east side of the winery. (No wine tasting at that location)
    • Non-alcoholic drinks can be purchased in Manzanita Roasting and the Kitchen and throughout the fair at food vendors. Manzanita has fresh roasted coffee, espresso drinks, smoothies, and teas.
  • How do you become a vendor at the fair?
    • Our fair is a juried, all-artisan fair, meaning you must submit photos and a description of your work for review. If you are a new vendor and your work is approved for the fair, you will receive an application that needs to be returned by the due date on the application. All work must be submitted to veronica@bernardowinery.com. There is a waiting list in some popular categories.
  • Do you allow pets at the fair?
    • No. As much as we love our furry friends, we do not allow dogs or other pets on the winery grounds. Service animals are always welcome. Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.  Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA. There are signs posted at every entrance as well as on our social media and website. Also, please do not leave pets in vehicles. Regardless of the outside temperature, it is dangerous for your pet and is against the law.
  • Is there an ATM onsite?
    • Not at this time. Please bring cash for fair vendors that do not accept cards.
  • Do you have additional Restrooms for the Fair? 
    • Yes. Our two main restrooms are located near the salon and near the RB History Museum. Also, for the fair, we have portable flushing toilets on trailers, located near the main parking lot and by the front lower entrance to the winery.
  • All the details…
    • Admission and parking are FREE. We suggest carpooling.
    • The Fair hours are 10-5pm both Saturday and Sunday
    • The winery is open til 9pm Saturdays, 6pm on Sundays for your enjoyment
    • We recommend sunhats and comfortable shoes for the fair, as it is an outside venue.
