Petaluma festival celebrates 10 years of ‘reverential riverside revelry’

The 10th annual Rivertown Revival festival, produced by Friends of the Petaluma River, will kick off Saturday, July 20, 2019 with eclectic costumes, bartering, music, $5 weddings, "curioddities" and more in Petaluma, Calif.

The city of Petaluma is holding its 10th annual Rivertown Revival festival Saturday to celebrate the city and the Petaluma River. The 11 a.m.-8 p.m. celebration includes live music, creative boats on the water, local food and drink, local vendors and artisans, a variety show and a play area for kids.

The festival benefits Friends of the Petaluma River. The festival draws costumed attendees who relish assuming another persona if only for a warm summer day.

The eco-friendly festival in Steamer Landing Park at D and Copeland streets on the McNear Peninsula uses reused, recycled and repurposed materials, and attendees, who dress as unique and exotic characters, are requested to bring their own drinking water.

Attractions include large sculptures and other art available for barter.

Adult admission is $20 and tickets are $5 for those 16 and younger. More information can be found online at
