The Wine & Art Festival at Rend Lake has been a favorite for art, wine, and music enthusiasts for 17 years. This year the Festival dates have been moved to October for cooler weather. The festival is held near beautiful Rend Lake in southern Illinois. This 18th year the Festival is also being moved back to the grounds of the Southern Illinois Art and Artisan Center where it started in 2001. This showcase weekend draws thousands of people to sample wines from many local wineries 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. Come to Rend Lake to spend the gorgeous fall days enjoying the wine, art, music and food of Southern Illinois.
