Sebastopol loves company elcome to Sebastopol and our annual Apple Blossom Festival. The festival is one of Sonoma County's oldest and best attended twoday events. We have held our festival since 1946 which means each year we celebrate many hometown traditions and we also have seen many changes through the years. Our popular Apple Blossom parade starts down Main St. at 10 a.m. Lisa Garcia (left) and Linda Collins on Saturday (April 13.). Parade entries celebrate the rich agricultural heritage and spirit of our popular community, with local school bands, colorful floats, antique cars, equine and dog entries and more. Our theme this year is “It Takes a Village to Blossom.” Once again this year our Pacific Market and Sebastopol Hardware are sponsoring our large wine and craft beer tasting tent in the center of the festival at Ives Park. For just $20, wine tent entrants can taste wine and beer all day. Also at the Ives Park festival grounds there will be live music, children’s play area, many crafts and food booths. On Sunday will be our popular and acclaimed Blues Festival hosted by Bill Bowker of KRSH FM and featuring headliner Joe Louis Walker. Hope to see you all there.

Sebastopol’s Apple Blossom Festival has been voted as many people’s “favorite” Sonoma County gathering for many years. One of the main reasons always has been it’s full weekend of great live musical performances. And, in recent years the lineup has been upgraded to include KRSH’s Bill Bowker’s Sunday blues lineup, this year

headlined by Joe Louis Walker, also featuring Nancy Wright and Sonoma County’s own John Courage. More homegrown talent will perform over the weekend, including Sebastopol’s Radar Band and west county’s Burnside. Parade winners are announced on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. All entertainment is free with the price of festival admission.
