Mountain View's Art & Wine festival this weekend

Celebrating its 43rd year, the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival returns to Castro Street this weekend, bringing live music, arts and crafts, dance lessons, food and drink vendors, and tons of kid-friendly activities. More 600 artists and craftspeople will be peddling their wares, which range from leather goods and hand blown glass to sculpture, and handcrafted jewelry.

Among the festival highlights this year is the musical lineup, with no fewer than 13 Bay Area bands playing everything from soul, rock and reggae to classical guitar. On Salsa Sunday, check out the free dance class on the main stage at 1 p.m., followed by four hours of live salsa music from Orquesta Borinquen and Ruckatan Latin Tribe.

For wine lovers, there's a festival within the festival: Taste of the Mountains Passport Days brings vintners from five artisanal wineries in the Santa Cruz Mountains to share their best varietals and answer questions (tickets are $45).

Those not yet of age may want to head to the Kids' Park, where high-adrenaline activities include a bungee trampoline jump and a climbing wall.

If you're snapping picks and posting them to Facebook, use the hashtag #MVAW2014. The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, and Sunday, Sept. 7; admission is free. For more information, go to mountainview.miramarevents.com or call 650-968-8378.

Will the Farmers Market be open on Sunday or is it closed for the Festival?

@FarmersMarket: There are no changes to the schedule or location of the Mountain View Farmers Market this weekend -- parking is just going to be a whole lot harder to find.
