Fun Flourishes at the Sebastopol Apple Blossom Festival & Parade

April 03, 2018

Springtime in Sonoma Valley heralds many returns, with flowers blooming and festivals flourishing. On Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, the charming town of Sebastopol, a scenic 20-minute drive from our hotel, will be hosting its 72nd annual Apple Blossom Festival and Parade. The celebration kicks off at 10 A.M. on Saturday with the parade itself, then continues till 6, with live music by popular local bands; artisans and merchants selling handcrafted jewelry, clothing, leather goods, and other specialty items; local and regional artists dealing in paintings, drawings, and photographs; wine tastings featuring the best Sonoma Valley vineyards; and food vendors serving up candy, ice cream, barbecue, sandwiches, Thai food, German faves, and other tasty eats. Sunday festivities run from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. and feature many of the same exhibitions, plus the Blues Music Explosion with special guest Terrie Odabi, a blues and soul vocal sensation whose explosive debut on the Bay Area music scene has invigorated both industry professionals and everyday fans.

Address: Ives Park and the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, 282 S. High St., Sebastopol, CA 95472
