This is a great month to travel in Southern California. The weather is cooler, but the “rainy season” hasn’t started, and daylight savings time doesn’t end until November 6.
In La Jolla, San Diego’s favorite coastal community, visitors can expect daytime temperatures of about 75°F (22°C) and overnight lows of around 58°F (14°C).
La Jolla Art & Wine Festival
The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival takes place in the heart of the village, between Prospect Ave. and Kline St., on lower Girard Ave. This two-day juried art show and fundraiser has garnered a reputation as one of the most prestigious art and wine festivals on the west coast. The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival is FREE and open to the public, with cash donations accepted at all the festival entrances.
Featuring the works of over 150 established artists from San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County, Baja and beyond, the LJAWF features something for everyone including a silent auction, roving entertainment, a gourmet marketplace, the Geppetto’s/Witt Lincoln Family Art Center and a wine and beer garden which will include premier wineries from around the world in addition to San Diego’s top breweries.
The festival was originally created by Friends of La Jolla Elementary, founders of the La Jolla Open Aire Market. All profits raised benefit underfunded programs such as art, music, science, physical education, technology, and on-site medical care at local public elementary and middle schools. Since launching in 2009, the LJAWF has raised over $120,000.
