Livermore Country Wine Festival This Weekend!

Livermore Valley Wine Festival

The 23rd Livermore Wine Country Festival is happening this weekend downtown. It’s supposed to cool off a little into the 70’s, so it should make for a great outing.

More info at, or just head downtown this weekend and discover the fun on your own.
