March On the Scene in Marin

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.

Date TBD Off the Reef Benefit Auction

Support ocean education and outreach through the International Ocean Film Foundation’s (IOFF) annual Off the Reef benefit. During this elegant night, guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, sustainable dinner and trailers from the upcoming IOFF film festival selections. Proceeds from the silent and live auctions will go towards IOFF’s continued efforts to raise environmental awareness through film and storytelling.

Date TBD Annual Marin Powwow

The Marin American Indian Alliance hosts the county’s annual Marin Powwow, 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 that can include intertribal dancing, traditional California Indian dancers, Azteca dancers and Hawaiian dancers. 

Date TBD Bay Area Red Cross Gala

The annual Bay Area Red Cross Gala is one of the Bay Area’s most sought after fundraiser tickets. All proceeds from the event will go toward funding Red Cross Blood Services, which supports much needed blood drives and donations to save lives across the country. Attendees will enjoy a cocktail hour, dinner plus live entertainment and dancing.

Date TBD Sausalito Easter Egg Hunt and Parade

For many, Sausalito is ground-zero for candy-filled egg treasure hunters at the city’s 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.
