Sausalito Winterfest 2021
Winterfest is the centerpiece of Sausalito’s small-town Holiday traditions, combining both long-time local activities like the Lighted Boat Parade and Fireworks with more recent additions like a 5K run. You can enjoy much of the fun for free, or attend an after-party that benefits local charities. There are many other Holiday events surrounding Winterfest this year as well.
Here’s a day-by-day rundown of the Sausalito Winterfest activities this year. Special thanks to the organizers, Sausalito on the Waterfront, for all the work they do for our community.
Saturday, December 11
Sausalito Winterfest kicks off with the 32nd Annual Sausalito Lighted Boat Parade and Fireworks along the Sausalito waterfront. Please click here for our dedicated page about the event, with links for buying tickets to the VIP seating and after-party.
