Summer is fleeting and August is a great time to soak up the sun and get out and about in Sonoma Valley. We have rounded up a few of our favorite upcoming events for this month right here. For even more wine country happenings, check out our full calendar!
Lauren Alaina at the Sonoma County Fair
Lauren Alaina captured America’s hearts on Season 10 of American Idol and her second album was named among the Most Anticipated Albums of 2017 by Rolling Stone. The collection, all written by the young star, includes her first Top 10 hit “Road Less Traveled.” See her perform live at the Sonoma County Fair on August 7!
Stone Fruit Celebration with Chef Jill Silverman Hough
Cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots—they’re back! Stone fruit is summer in your hand. There isn’t a better unmessed-with food than a good, ripe peach. All respond similarly to sautéing, poaching, macerating, grilling, roasting and drying. And once cooked, stone fruit goes with just about everything. Celebrate the season with both sweet and savory stone fruit recipes.
Gravenstein Apple Fair
Known as the "sweetest little fair in Sonoma County" the Gravenstein Apple Fair has a little something for everyone. Live music on two stages, arts & crafts vendors, excellent local food, cider, microbrews & wine, contests & activities, Children’s Corner, Chef’s Tent, Artisan Tasting Lounge, Do-It-Yourself Arena, Life on the Farm Arena and of course the famous heirloom Gravenstein apples.
