32nd Annual Downtown Washington Fine Art Fair & Winefest: What a Blast!

Fine Art Fair & Winefest is an event in Washington we all look forward to. The weather is usually nice, there is a variety of beautiful art on display, great live music, and, of course, lots of wine from the local wineries. Pictures? This year that I don’t have a booth set up for Slava Bowman Photography, and I was able to explore, enjoy and document the event for you!

The events kicks off on Friday night, 5-10pm. As the sun goes down, more and more people gather downtown and congregate around the food and drink areas...
