<b>Art, Music, Food and Wine on the Bay</b>: One of the Bay Area's most popular Labor Day weekend events is the Sausalito Art Festival, which takes place this Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The festival opens each day at 9 a.m. and closes at 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and at 5 p.m. on Monday.

At the heart of the festival are dozens of artists working in every medium imaginable, from watercolors and oil paints to clay, fiber, glass, steel and more. There are jewelry makers, print makers, photographers and woodworkers, including many from Sonoma County.

There's plenty to eat and drink, including beer, sparkling and still wines, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages.

When you're hungry, you can nibble crab cakes and udon noodles, gnaw a grilled turkey leg, tuck into a burger or lap up ice cream.

There's an impressive line up of music, too, which might determine which day you attend. Saturday features the Deadlines, Crystal Bowersox, Creedence Clearwater Revisited and, seriously, Lisa Marie Presley.

On Sunday, it's Mari Mack and LivinLikeKings, the fabulous Super Diamond, Fab Four and Dave Mason.
