The Butter & Egg Days Festival is a feast for the entire family offering a wide variety of festival foods, crafts, arts, two large “kid areas,” and so much more all spread over four city blocks. The strength of Petaluma’s giving culture is well documented we are excited and honored to celebrate the generosity and compassion of those that make up the very fabric of our community.
Parade entrants will need to incorporate the theme of the year (coming soon!) into their float design. The theme will be chosen to give nonprofits, businesses, organizations, and individuals lots of options for showing off their creativity in their designs. All parade entries will be judged on how well their entry portrays the Parade theme.
The Butter & Egg Day festivities kick off on April 13th with the Opening Ceremonies at the Petaluma Historical Library and Museum (20 Fourth St), from noon to 1 pm. Mayor Kevin McCDonnell will read a proclamation honoring the 2024 Grand Marshal and Good Eggs. Join in celebrating the heart of our community, and the start of Butter & Egg Days!
One week later on Saturday, April 20th the Parade steps off at noon and will march through the historic downtown, surrounded by a festival of fun and activities from 10 am to 5 pm.
Clover Sonoma will return to lead the Clover Kids’ Parade, which precedes the main parade at 11:30 am with a procession of preschoolers and primary grade youngsters and their families.
