Art enthusiasts and wine connoisseurs are in for a treat as the 14th Annual Sonoran Fine Art & Wine Festival makes its grand return to Stagecoach Village in Cave Creek. Scheduled from January 12 to 14, the festival promises a blend of visual artistry and exquisite wines, set against the picturesque backdrop of the Sonoran Desert.
Located at 7100 E. Cave Creek Rd., Stagecoach Village, known for its stunning desert views and western-style architecture, provides an idyllic setting for this open-air extravaganza. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, visitors can immerse themselves in a vibrant display of local and regional art, sprawling across the charming plazas and botanical gardens of the village.
The festival showcases a diverse range of artistic creations. Patrons can marvel at sculptures ranging from minute to life-size, crafted in materials like bronze, clay, glass, and wood. Additionally, the event features spectacular paintings, vibrant ceramics, hand-crafted jewelry, hand-blown glass, fine photography, intricate metalwork, boutique-style clothing, and much more.
But the festival offers more than just visual art. As patrons stroll through the plaza, they can enjoy sipping wine and listening to live music, adding a sensory delight to their experience. Wine tastings, offered by a selection of local wineries, will be available on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., accompanied by gourmet food trucks and patio dining options.
This year, the festival is proud to support Horses Help as its host charity. This remarkable organization provides therapeutic and recreational horsemanship opportunities for individuals with physical, cognitive, and behavioral challenges, including at-risk and military populations. Recently relocated to Cave Creek, Horses Help exemplifies the community spirit that the festival promotes.
For those planning to attend, Cave Creek offers a myriad of other attractions. Known as a popular tourist destination, the town boasts great food, eclectic shopping, art galleries, and authentic western saloons. Visitors are encouraged to explore the unique shops and restaurants that add to the town’s vibrant character.
