Epicurean-focused events like the Bodega Bay Seafood, Art and Wine Festival (Aug. 27-28), and the Sonoma County Wine Auction (Sept. 15-16) highlight the rich and diverse bounty of Sonoma County.
Sonoma County welcomes back live music after a 2-year hiatus, featuring the Rodney Strong Summer Concert Series (July through September), the Petaluma Music Festival (August 6), Summer Nights on the Green in Windsor (June through September), and the Summer on the Square music series (June through August) in Downtown Santa Rosa. Those looking for a more avant-garde experience can check out the Cotati Accordion Festival, a multi-generational accordion extravaganza (August 20-21), or Rivertown Revival, a music and arts festival on the banks of the Petaluma River (July 23-24).
Also making a return this summer is Gay Wine Weekend, presented by Out in the Vineyard. The three day-weekend (July 15-17) is full of LGBTQ events celebrating world-class wine, culinary offerings, music, dancing, and more in Sonoma County. Another annual LGBTQ favorite – Lazy Bear Week – takes place in Guerneville August 1-8. Activities include pools, hikes, barbecues, wine tours, shows, dances, feasts, and bonfires.
Great cultural events also include the Gravenstein Apple Fair (August 13-14), and Art in the Redwoods Festival (August 18-21).
