2017 Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival

120th Anniversary
September 22 – 24

Since 1897 the Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival has celebrated Sonoma’s wine, food, culture and heritage. California’s oldest festival, this tradition takes place the end of September in downtown Sonoma’s historic plaza. The Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival benefits many Sonoma non-profit organizations and community projects. This three-day event is presented by Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival, an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

We invite you to join the celebration! The festivities kick off on Friday, September 22 with the costume gala. Taste great wine, sample delicious food and dance under the stars to live music. The fun keeps going throughout the weekend with Sip & Shop – wine tasting and artists showcase of more than 80 artists, grape stomp competition, fire fighter activity, “Get Your Glow On” Night Parade, live music and a Kids Zone.

Grape Stomp

Toss off your shoes, roll up your pants and get ready for the Great Grape Stomp at the Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival! You’ll be stomping with the best so come show off your footwork talent in the wine barrel. Choose to enter one of three different grape stomps: (1) Family Grape Stomp, (2) Corporate Grape Stomp or (3) Grape STOMPede!

Music Lineup

Toss down a blanket and enjoy the music of some of the best Sonoma County bands as well as a special Friday night headliner! The main stage behind City Hall is where you can find live music and dancing. Special weekend VIP music passes are available.

Get Your Glow On Parade

Strike up the band, dress up the kids & light up your float! Continuing the tradition of California’s second longest running parade, the Vintage Festival night parade is a fun event for the entire family. The festivities begin at 7pm with a re-enactment of the Bear Flag Revolt, the story of how the California Republic was born right here in Sonoma. Then at 8pm the Get Your Glow On night parade begins. Join the fun and enjoy the show!

Art at the Festival

Don’t miss this great opportunity to take care of some holiday shopping and support the arts at the same time! This year we feature some of the finest artists from the Bay Area – some returning artists as well as many new exhibitors. We are privileged to have such a creative community in our own, proverbial ‘back yard’ and we are honored to showcase them during the Festival.
