June 16: New Tradition in Cotati

After 37 years of the Cotati Jazz Festival, the town and its chamber of commerce are updating their agenda and expanding on the concert concept with this summer’s inaugural Cotati Music Festival. Celebrating Cotati as a varied and vibrant musical hub, the new festival features performances from Sonoma County rock ’n’ roll, Americana and rockabilly acts like the John Courage Trio, Highway Poets, Danny Sorentino and Derek Irving. Local food, wine and beer will flow, and families are invited to spend a day grooving to the music on Saturday, June 16, at La Plaza Park in downtown Cotati. Noon to 6pm. Free admission. cotati.org.
