DescriptionNestled along the banks of the Petaluma River and chartered in 1858, Petaluma is one of California's oldest and most picturesque cities. Located just 32 miles north of San Francisco, Petaluma is the southernmost city in Sonoma County. Because Petalume was built on bedrock, the city was spared it much of the destruction of the 1906 earthquake. The well-preserved Historic Downtown area is proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Today, Petaluma's iron-front buildings and architectural gems of the late 1800s house one-of-a-kind boutiques, locally owned galleries, more than a dozen antique stores as well as award-winning restaurants serving the best of Wine Country cuisine. It's all walkable with plenty of free parking every day of the week.

The Historic Downtown area is also the backdrop for the annual Butter & Egg Days Festival on the third weekend in April. The parade and antique fair harken back to the time in Petaluma's history when the community was known as the "World's Egg Basket." Petaluma stays true to its roots as an area known for agricultural diversity and quality, locally produced products which can be savored farm-to-table cuisine served in many downtown restauants.
