Sonoma County Fermentation Festival, Sept. 2, Petaluma
Saturday, Sept. 2, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Petaluma Fairgrounds
One of the absolute highlights of our year is the Sonoma County Fermentation Festival. Organized by our friend, the fermentation goddess Jennifer Harris, this is the best celebration of all things fermented in Sonoma County, if not Northern California. Join us at the Libation Lounge for a taste of cider or three, and then check out the vendors, food, classes, and wares of fermentables. It’s a fundraiser for the Sebastopol Grange. Advance tickets are $25 for General Admission, $40 for VIP (includes entry to the Libation Lounge, with dozens of boozy beverage producers). Hope to all you yeast whisperers and bacteria farmers there!
