GOOD THINGS COMING TO GUERNEVILLE AND TO SONOMA COUNTY TOO

 

 

We are anxiously awaiting the opening of a new restaurant in town.  This one is Seaside Metal and is due to open soon.  Check out this Inside Scoop article in the Chronicle.

Guerneville is no longer a food desert or a gourmet ghetto, but rather someplace very comfortable with lots of choices.  The annual Wine Road Barrel Tasting will be happening for the next two weekends.  It’s a great way to sample from barrels and purchase futures.  If you are interested click here.

 

 

The weekend beginning Feb 28th will be  the quieter of the 2 Barrel Tasting weekends.  This could leave time for a hike in the woods or at the coast.

For the weekend beginning March 7th there will be a whole lot happening beginning with our monthly downtown art walk in Guerneville

 

 

For more information on the Art Walk click here.

 

And last but by no way least is the Sebastopol Bluegrass and Folk Festival on Saturday afternoon and evening.  Click here to see the Sonoma County Folk Society information on the festival.

GRAVENSTEIN APPLE FAIR AND MORE

 

They call it “the sweetest little fair in Sonoma County”

SUN AT LAST…

The pool is open and so is Johnson’s Beach. Burke’s Canoes is going full blast, Soar Canoe and Kayak Rental  and the Canopy Tours are booking up fast.

Saturday, June 18th from noon to 4:00 PM there is the Art in the Park afternoon with the Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, which is a free event except for parking fees. On July 9th there is the Gourmet Hike and Silent Auction which sells out quickly.

 

July brings a couple of nearby Independence Day celebrations.  Monte Rio celebrates on Saturday, July 2nd and Guerneville’s fireworks display is on Monday the 3rd of July.  Who does not like fireworks?  You can go to the events or watch them from the grounds at Creekside Inn

 

The Friday evening Occidental Farmers Market is open with a great selection of local produce, cheese, honey and crafts.  It is hard to pass up the great food stands from Mexican and Indian fare to my favorite Gerard’s Paella and pizza made in a wood fired oven.

 

New this year:  Papa Finch and two babies-barely visible just 2  eyes and 2 beaks.

 

 

Farmstand, Food Trucks, Canoe & Kayak Races, Art & Wine
