If you want to help Idyllwild recover, we are back in business and ready for everyone to get out to shop, eat, taste wine, visit our amazing galleries, and more,” barked Max. “The Art Walk & Wine Tasting is our most popular fundraiser, and this year we welcome many of the area’s most prized wineries and art galleries. If we have yet to meet, I’ll be on hand with my Deputies greeting visitors and supporting the Art Alliance for this important event.”

Participants will start their art hunt by visiting the town’s galleries, hot spots, and artist booths.
