- Things To Do
In 2018, the Harvest Fair will mark its 44th year of showcasing our county's grand harvest which continues to result in world-class wines, award winning beer and a plethora of culinary wealth. In 2015, with over 26,000 votes, the Harvest Fair was voted the Best Annual Festival of Sonoma County bestowed by The Press Democrat readers. Each October, thirsty travelers from across the entire US, are beckoned to Santa Rosa to participate in a complete farm to table experience, inspired by the county's hard working farmers, ranchers, vintners and producers.
The epicenter of the Harvest Fair is still the Grand Tasting Pavilion, which features over one-hundred Sonoma County wineries bringing forth their best varietals for sampling. Guests are invited to savor innovative cuisine from this year's Professional Food Competition, awards winning wines, locally crafted brews, ciders and more. More...

The marketplace also boasts an array of artisan vendors with unique wares like hand-crafted jewelry, clothing, luxury soaps and locally milled olive oil. More...
