Rivertown Revival to benefit Friends of the Petaluma River:
Petaluma is launching a first of its kind River Festival on July 24th, 2010.  Called Rivertown Revival, this FREE and unique event embraces Petaluma’s Rivertown history with aquatic art, costumed characters and a wide variety of displays and activities, all presented in a turn of the century carnival atmosphere.  Attendees are encouraged to join the fun by dressing in costumes reflecting the old-time “Rivertown” theme.

The Rivertown Revival will run from 11:30 am to 6:00 pm and takes place near downtown Petaluma at the Petaluma River Heritage Center in Steamer Landing Park, 6 Copeland St. (off of D St.).  This rustic park features the 100-year old Livery Stable, people often recognize as the Ghiradelli barn. The event will feature great Americana music, art boat drag races, live art, sideshows, children’s activities, food and beverage concessions, arts and craft vendors, and community non-profit displays.

The Rivertown Revival is a fundraising event to benefit Friends of the Petaluma River and the Petaluma Arts Council. It is presented by Clementine Eco Events and sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing Company, Clover Organics, Outwest Garage, Heritage Salvage, and other local businesses and individuals who want to help celebrate and conserve the Petaluma River.  Vendors include: Lagunita’s Brewing, Preferred Sonoma Caterers, Pizza Politana, the BBQ Brothers, The Fabulous Frickle Brothers, Petaluma Coffee and Tea Company, the Petaluma School of Ballet and many others.

This event has been planned by an all -volunteer group of community members who envisioned a new kind of festival focusing on the River.
