61st Annual Sausalito Art Festival

This event is always a hoot! In one place at one time, there's world class art, great food and rocking music. Its even more fun to share with others.  Tickets are $25 - which you can buy online or onsite. 

We'll meet at noon just inside the main gates, and plan to meetup again in the big tent for the 2:15 show with "Credence Clearwater Revisited". We'll need some volunteers willing to save tables for our groups.  

The country’s best art, most exciting artists, a top-name music line-up, tempting gourmet food, fine wines, and premium beers, all bring more than 30,000 art lovers together in an electrifying atmosphere of creativity, fun, discovery, and magic - every Labor Day Weekend. For more than 60 years, the Sausalito Art Festival has brought art, artists and the community together to inspire, and be inspired. Join us at the Festival on the waterfront of Sausalito and celebrate art.

    If you can get out again TODAY MONDAY then make the effort. The music will be awesome. Tainted love will have you dancing before 1:00 pm and the English Beat will have you dancing on the tables after that. The incredible Psychadelic Furs will close this awesome 80's day in Sausalito !!!!

    First off, special thanks to all the folks who spent time saving tables. Very much appreciated. Well this was an interesting venue, not sure if a festival like this is the best place for a meetup. Was not the best opportunity for new folks to get to know and mingle with others. Still was great fun, enjoyed meeting new people and the art work was incredible and unique as always.

    • Joyce

      Thanks Allan. Yes maybe an event like this is not ideal for first-timers, but the rest of us seemed to enjoyed it. I had a great time, and I got to connect with a few M&Ms whom I've met before but never had an opportunity for longer conversation. And I agree with Chuck on all counts. :)

      September 1, 2013

    • Allan

      yes - no one dares disagree with Chuck!

    What a perfectly sunny/artsy Labor Day weekend, and lovely Saturday afternoon in Sausalito! Regret any unexpected huge traffic delays, (as I was driving back to Marin, from out of town). Found Chuck & Devotees--- next to the stage, after Credence/before Lisa Marie! THANKS 2 ALLAN!

    August 31, 2013

    • Allan

      I looked for you Teresa - sorry we didn't connect.

    • Teresa

      Thanks Allan, I looked for you too, up/down some art-filled aisles, plus around the music stage; sorry we missed, (not a concern, as I knew folks would be in wandering mode)! Glad we spoke earlier & hope you enjoyed your day's journey/s!

    I'll be there on Sunday, as well - hope to be able to connect, somehow.

    When leaving the fair today approx 5pm traffic northbound out of Sausalito was bumper to bumper all the way to the exit for San Rafael- Richmond bridge. If you live in the east bay consider staying with friends or staying late for your return home.

  • Janie G.

    Saga continues...notes from Pt Richmond residents & FYI for tomorrow and Monday's event - go early;

    ...fire truck delayed getting to 580 West due to traffic. hope nobody's life is at risk. They need to close the eastbound for this 911 response. More sirens...they cannot get thru traffic!!! *******

  • Janie G.

    I tried to get on S Rafael Bridge going west - 11 AM....totally stopped and backed up. I will try later to see if it clears out. Most likely I'm going to be really late / or not make it at all. Hopefully it will clear out in a couple of hours :>)

  • Allan

    Our first gathering point is just inside the main gate at noon. I'll have a Mostly Marin sign of some sort. Late arrivals can call me @[masked] 2728.

    For touring, we can break into small groups, that you can choose to join if you wish. Additionally we'll each have a little sticker to identify us as MM members as you wander around. Second gathering point is under the big tent at 1:45 pm - looking for volunteers to help save tables for Credence Clearwater. Check the URL in the posting for parking info, dress appropriately (likely lots of sun), there's great food and beverages to purchase.

    August 30, 2013
