Held annually for 59 consecutive years, the Sausalito Art Festival has become a Bay Area legend and is one of the most highly anticipated events of the Labor Day Weekend in the Bay Area. Come out to the waterfront and see hundreds of booths filled with arts, crafts, food, and more and enjoy live music from well known acts and good company for the afternoon or the whole weekend!

Complete with a Friday Night Party Opening Celebration, a silent auction, and the many attractions of the event itself, the Sausalito Art Festival has become an institution in the area. Come for the afternoon and enjoy the festival atmosphere, or purchase an all-inclusive ticket for the Friday Night Party and the weekend festival attractions and events for one price and enjoy the entire event! Nonstop entertainment and culinary delights all paired with fine wines from the region and wonderful scenery and weather make this one of the few can’t miss events of the fall season!

Exciting Entertainment for a Cause

The Sausalito Art Festival is also one of the few events of its kind that is administrated by a nonprofit entity whose mission is to further the arts and art education in the community. Fostering Sausalito’s almost 200 year tradition and history of art, the Sausalito Art Festival Foundation uses the festival as a fundraising event and donates the money raised back to community organizations in the form of grants, awards, and other means. The festival has raised more than $500,000 for these community programs in recent years.

With funds donated to a wide range of local organizations from the Marine Mammal Center and the Bay Area Discovery Museum to the Sausalito Historical Society and the Southern Marin Homeless Coalition, the Sausalito Art Festival maintains a clear connection to the community.

An Award Winning Festival

Long recognized as one of the best Art Festivals in the country of its kind, the Sausalito Art Festival Foundation was honored in 2011 with several awards from the International Festival and Events Association. With a gold medal in the Best Radio Promotion category, silver medals in both the Best Program Cover Design and Best Volunteer Program categories, and a bronze medal in the Best Commemorative Poster category, the Art Festival was widely heralded once again as one of the most well organized and executed events anywhere in the world.

Get the APP to Get Around the Festival!

In 2011, the Sausalito Art Festival rolled out their new iphone application as a companion guide to the festival’s labyrinth of booths and offerings. With detailed and location based listings for artists, food vendors, entertainment, and more, the app helped festival visitors navigate the festival with ease and find the booths that they wanted to see most with ease. Download the app for next year’s Sausalito Art Festival before you go and plan your day, mark your favorite booths, and never miss the musical acts you’re waiting for!
