The downtown Concord AAUW Art and Wine (and Beer) Walk is set for Saturday, May 10, and Concord Ambassadors will participate as part of an effort to promote the upcoming visit from residents of Concord’s Sister City, Kitakami, Japan.
The Concord Ambassadors organization is the local nonprofit that supports Concord’s Sister City program. The Kitakami contingent will be in Concord from Oct. 2 through 5.
Participants in the Art and Wine (and Beer) Walk, which benefits the AAUW scholarship program, will stroll around downtown Concord and Todos Santos Plaza while enjoying wine, micro-brew beers and local art.
The All Area Music Festival, featuring music students from Mt. Diablo elementary, middle and high schools, will be taking place in Todos Santos Plaza.
The Ambassadors will be hosting an “Art Stop” at Brenden Theatre, where participants will see the origami crane sculpture by Oakland artist Sean Olson, created in honor of Concord’s Sister City, and the work of Alice Martinez, a local artist who is best known for her tropical watercolors.
Tickets to the Art and Wine Walk are $20 per person in advance or $25 at the door; participants must be 21 or older.
The event takes place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and begins at E.J. Phair Alehouse, 2151 Salvio St. For more information, call (925) 363-4438 or visit http://concord-ca.aauw.net/.
