Enjoy Labor Day Weekend at the Sausalito Arts Festival
Looking for something to do in the Bay Area at the end of August? It can seem as though San Francisco offers no end of activities, but sometimes it can become a challenge to slog through all of the options in order to try and find the perfect something. That’s why we’re here to help! On our blog today we are going to highlight a particular event that will appeal to those who love art, festivals, and maybe the chance to escape from the big city for just a few hours.
We are talking about the Sausalito Art Festival, which will take place along the waterfront in beautiful Sausalito itself, just across the bay from San Francisco and easily accessible by car. Beginning on Friday, August 30th, and taking advantage of the extended Labor Day weekend in order to keep things going through Monday, September 2nd, the Sausalito Art Festival has been keeping art tradition alive within the Bay Area for over 60 years.
Each time Labor Day rolls around, residents of Sausalito prepare themselves to be well nigh overrun by more than 30,000 visitors who come specifically for this event and a chance to experience the artwork of over 260 highly celebrated and decorated artists who have been brought from around the country in order to showcase their unique work. The artists who will appear at this year’s Sausalito Arts Festival include those working in mediums such as:
Not only about art, the Sausalito Art Festival also features a marvelous lineup of food and beverage vendors. This is truly a chance to see the best that the Bay Area has to offer, as well as perhaps stretch your legs as you walk along the waterfront of the picturesque village of Sausalito.
As a show of how much Sausalito wants you to bring your children, anyone under 12 gets to enter the event for free! As well as the $0 admission, young people will have the chance to experience some events created just for them and their little burgeoning artistic talents.
The Sausalito Arts Festival preview party begins at 6:00 on the night of Friday, August 30th. The festival itself then begins on Saturday, the 31st, and runs until 7:00 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Monday, the festival’s final day, the event begins at 10:00 and goes until 5:00.
