Meet the Makers

Meet 17 Carmel-by-the-Sea artists and enjoy tasting local wines, craft beers, and food creations while you stroll your way around the 4th annual “Meet the Makers” tour.

“Meet the Makers” starts in Devendorf Park and you’ll stroll through charming downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and meet the artists who carry on the artist colony legacy, tour their galleries, and sip Monterey County wines. Look for the blue lanterns to find participating art galleries.
