Saturday & Sunday, April 30 - May 1: Annual Bodega Bay Fisherman's Festival

The Bodega Bay community will celebrate its 38th Annual Fisherman’s Festival, packed with music, food, and entertainment. A favorite attraction is the wine tasting booth, featuring more than 25 Sonoma County wines. Food booths have something for every palate from lamb or oyster barbeques and local fish and chips, to vegie burgers, salads, and sandwiches. Live music and entertainers perform on stage all day Saturday and Sunday. Artisans and vendors from all over California and beyond will offer a wide selection of arts and crafts.

Sunday morning will feature the blessing of the fishing fleet, when decorated boats parade out of the harbor to receive a blessing from local clergy. A flower wreath is cast upon the waters honoring the fishermen lost at sea. The festival is a great venue for kids, with a play area for face painting, spin paintings, games, free kit lessons, pony rides and llamas (and guest pets) on parade. There will be a drawing for raffle prizes from local merchants.

The Bodega Bay Fisherman’s Festival is a nonprofit organization run by local community volunteers under the leadership of chair Ginny Bassi. All proceeds of the festival benefit local service and volunteer organizations.
