Art & Garden Festival 2018 - July 8

The 17th Annual Art & Garden Festival, one of Petaluma's most loved events will again take place the weekend after Independence Day!  Join us from 11 am to 5 pm, on July 8th, 2018, for a fun filled day for all the family. Once again we'll host fine local crafters, artisans, gardeners, live music on two stages and an array of local wineries, breweries, restaurants & fine food purveyors will offer tastings.

This event is free to attend, but you have to purchase a Tasting Package in order to partake in all the great wine, craft beer, cocktails and food tasting.

Not the typical street fair, vendors are handpicked quality vendors with creative home and garden décor, jewelry, arts and more. With 145 booths of unusual, unique, handmade items this event has something for everyone’s taste and budget.

Experts will be on hand from The Petaluma Garden Club and Sonoma County Master Gardeners to answer gardening questions. Figure out how to grow vegetables in tricky Petaluma adobe soil and what makes a garden organic.                                                                                                  

Get psyched for this year's line up!
