Want to get out on the town this March? Here are some of the most fun and fabulous local galas, fundraisers, celebrations and other events to see—and be seen at—this month around Marin County and in the Bay Area.
March 17 Second Annual Marin Powwow
The Marin American Indian Alliance will host the county’s Second Annual Marin Powwow on March 17 at Terra Linda High School, bringing the community together to celebrate the cultural diversity of several indigenous peoples. The festivities include a number of indigenous arts and crafts vendors, plus performances featuring intertribal dancing, traditional California Indian dancers, Azteca dancers and Hawaiian dancers.
March 21 Bay Area Red Cross Gala
The 29th annual Bay Area Red Cross Gala arrives at San Francisco’s Pier 27 t.

Attendees will enjoy a cocktail hour, dinner service and live entertainment while supporting the cause.
March 22 & 23 Marin Ballet Spring Concert

March 30 Sausalito Easter Egg Hunt and Parade
For many, Sausalito is ground-zero for candy-filled egg treasure hunters—and this year is no exception as 2024 marks the Sausalito’s 41st annual Easter egg hunt. Even grownups can get in on the action during the 21-and-over adult egg hunt, with more than $3000 in prizes from local businesses and restaurants to be found. The Easter Bunny may make an appearance during the town’s traditional Easter Parade, which winds down Caledonia Street to Dunphy Park.
