Six hundred or so happy wine, cheese and chocolate lovers will gather once again in beautiful Balboa Park to sample some of the best wines, cheese and chocolate that California has to offer at the 5th Annual Wine, Cheese & Chocolate Festival.

As in previous years, this popular event is hosted by the Women’s Museum of California as part of its community outreach and fundraising efforts.

The Festival is held to promote and support the ongoing activities at the Women’s Museum of California in service to the San Diego community. This includes both cultural and educational exhibits, community outreach, lectures, vintage clothing presentations, school tours and a well-developed high-school and college student intern program.

The Wine, Cheese and Chocolate Festival attracts a wide variety of people from the community, including many dancers who follow the San Diego music dancing scene.

Participants will receive a commemorative festival wine glass to take home, as well as other giveaways.
