Sausalito Art Festival

How do you plan on spending your Labor Day weekend? Hoping you won’t be really getting into the spirit, i.e. laboring. Most people do some mix of the following: BBQ, hang out near or on a body of water, buy a mattress, buy a truck. But for over half a century, Labor Day for Sausalito residents has been synonymous with one thing — the Sausalito Art Festival. One of the oldest and most prestigious art events in the country, the festival features fine art, music, food and wine along the scenic Sausalito Waterfront and attracts art aficionados and collectors from around the world. Participating artists are selected by a rigorous jury process and exhibit a range of work, including painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, glass, fiber and fashion, wood, photography, mixed media and more. There are also two stages with continuous live music and headline performers, over 260 artists, premium California wines, a beer garden, and a children’s entertainment area.
