Come to the Bennett Valley picnic!


Sunday June 2nd 2019 - 12:00pm to

Held continuously since 1873, the 147th annual Bennett Valley Picnic will be on Sunday, June 2, from noon to 4 p.m. at the Bennett Valley Guild. This event is open to the public and fun for the whole family. Enjoy barbecued Mary’s chicken, Tom’s special recipe homemade beans, salads, sides, and homemade desserts. Beer and wine will also be available for purchase from Ricardo’s Bar & Grill .

There will be a silent auction featuring wine, gift certificates, food, and many other items, as well as the 9th Annual Cherry Pit Spitting Contest from noon to 2 p.m. Live music will be provided by The Bohemian Highway, the Sonoma County band led by veteran singer-songwriter Doug Blumer and Nancy Irish, performing their original Americana and folk-rock songs with tight harmony and great arrangements.

Through the years the Bennett Valley Guild has been, and continues to be, community-oriented. Funds raised at the picnic will go toward the restoration of the building and grounds. Come enjoy a good old-fashioned picnic with friends and neighbors in a beautiful location, and see the work that’s already been done to the hall, originally built in 1873.

Tickets are only available at the door. Cost is $15 for adults, $10 for children under 16. The Bennett Valley Guild is located at 4145 Grange Road, Santa Rosa. bvguild.org.
