Fall in Love with Sonoma County
The theme of our recent sponsor spotlights has been love – from Joe and Tracy Dutton finding love at the Gravenstein Apple Fair, to Richard and Saralee Kunde who, through their shared love for Sonoma County agriculture, fell in love with each other.
Sonoma County Tourism (SCT) is an organization that helps people from around the country and the world discover Sonoma County. Whether it’s an exhausted Londoner dreaming of floating down the sun-dappled Russian River, an overheated Dallas resident eager to experience the cool waves of the Pacific Ocean, or a busy Los Angeleno looking for a quick getaway with the perfect blend of rustic, cool, and luxurious, SCT provides tools to help visitors plan their ideal Sonoma County trip.
Tools For Travelers
With the Sonoma County app https://www.sonomacounty.com/sonoma-county-app visitors are enticed by the variety of dining, lodging, and other options available to experience all the county has to offer. Of course, there’s also the SCT website https://www.sonomacounty.com/ which is another great resource to help potential tourists turn their Sonoma County vacation dream into a reality.
Once visitors experience this wonderful corner of heaven with its natural beauty, abundance of local produce, farm-to-table ethos, and some of the friendliest residents one could ever hope to meet, they can’t help but fall in love.
Life Opens Up
“Life Opens Up” is Sonoma County’s brand. More than a slogan, the phrase reflects the desire for connection so many visitors crave. Whether it’s a connection to nature, to local producers and artisans, to each other, or to themselves, Sonoma County is the perfect place to connect with what’s important. It’s no surprise then, that the Board of Tourism is a generous supporter of the Gravenstein Apple Fair.
According to Todd O’Leary, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for SCT, “Sonoma County is about gratitude for the bounty of the land and supporting passionate artisans and makers. Our residents are unpretentious, fiercely independent, yet always willing to offer a seat at their table. The Gravenstein Apple Fair epitomizes the county’s values with its down-home charm, focus on preserving local agriculture, and showcasing of local producers.”
50 Years of Connection
The Gravenstein Apple Fair turns 50 this year – and with the support of sponsors like SCT – 50 has never looked so good. Come experience the Fair’s Golden Jubilee celebration and experience how “Life Opens Up” for yourself on August 12 -13, at beautiful Ragle Ranch Park in Sebastopol.
