The Illinois Wine and Art Festival at Rend Lake will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday near Rend Lake on the ground adjacent to the Southern Illinois Art and Artisan Center.
The showcase draws thousands of people to sample wines from many local and regional vineyards 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.
