The Petaluma Downtown Association is pleased to sponsor the Petaluma Antique Faire. The rich history of our downtown, which boasts recognition from the National Registry of Historic Downtowns, is the ideal setting for an event such as this. Antiques and history together create this uniquely Petaluma experience . The Spring event will be held Sunday, April 29, 2018 from 8:00am to 4:00pm, the day after our Annual Butter & Egg Days Parade & Festival, which draws 25,000+ visitors.
The Petaluma Antique Faire will be set up on Kentucky and Fourth Streets, in the A Street parking lot, and on Western Ave.
All proceeds go to benefit the Petaluma Downtown Association.
