No offense meant at all summer festivals around the Bay Area, but the Sausalito Art Festival – held every weekend of Labor Day for the last 58 years – has always been the best. Not only is the art class (it is a program of the jury and get some really unique artists), but also the food is excellent and predictable vendors. Then there is the music, always with names much bigger than you normally see and hear at a festival. This year’s lineup includes the Bangles, Fixx and the reunification of Modern English (Saturday), Dave Mason and tubes (Sunday) and the Jefferson Starship and Mavis Staples (Monday).
The festival will be held 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Marinship Park in Sausalito. Admission is $ 5 – $ 20 (www.sausalitoartfestival.org), with free bus service linking the downtown parking lots and the arrival of the ferry from Sausalito to the gates of the festival. And taking the ferry from San Francisco may be the way forward with the construction of the entire Golden Gate Bridge for a number of hard riding.
