Vacaville Events Throughout the Year

Vacaville California features year-round fun


Vacaville-- Vacaville (not far for the state capitol of Sacramento) embodies Americana. An historic town square next to a river is replete with signs of other times. Yet when you visit, you get the sense that the people here are hard-working, independent, fun-loving, and very much into celebrating and seizing the moment. Take, for instance, an annual celebration called Vacaville Art, Wine and Brew Festival.


Events throughout the year wrap themselves like the beautiful holiday trees sold at Vacaville Festival of Trees fundraiser around music, dining, and even a bit of alcoholic beverage. Most every event offers bands that play jazzy, rock, contemporary, ethnic and even classical music. In fact, the music schedule includes free concerts throughout the summer, culminating in several big events where the music never seems to stop. Those include the Vacaville Art, Wine & Brew festival, and the Vacaville Jazz Festival, to name 2.


Locals have the inside track on the happenings and events, while we tourists have to plan our trips to make sure we can get a glimpse of how the town celebrates life. While our editorial staff lucked into a weekend celebration once when passing through the state of California and just dropping by, we were surely hooked on the vibe that emanates from this event-driven place.

Maybe you can blame it on the well-organized Vacaville Downtown Business Improvement District with their excellent web site. Or you can thank the city for its insight into what drives tourism and stimulates the community to rise to an occasion. Investing in its business community, its arts & cultural boards, its fundraising organizations and the talents that come from Vacaville such as musicians, actors and entertainers, the City of Vacaville offers one of the best bets in California for having a good time, while being hospitably welcomed to a place that seems so nice, you really could pack up and move to Vacaville, as its events throughout the year offer enough entertainment for even the jaded city slickers!
