Sept. 23-25: Vintage Fun in Sonoma

The second oldest festival in California, the Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival, is 119 years old, though it’s still a fresh mix of music, food and fun for the whole family. This year’s opening gala on Sept. 23 features ’80s dance band Notorious belting out the hits while attendees sample food and wine from local Sonoma restaurants. The party continues through the weekend, and features everything from 5k and 12k runs, grape stomps, the annual firefighter bucket brigade, art and music galore and a Saturday-night parade sure to light up downtown Sonoma. The community gets vintage Friday to Sunday, Sept. 23–25, Sonoma Plaza, First Street East, Sonoma. Free admission.
