Creativity Integral to Sonoma County

Established in 2014, Creative Sonoma believes that culture and creativity are among Sonoma County’s most powerful assets. Creative entrepreneurs and organizations fill the County with cultural entertainment and opportunities, from the hundreds of visual artists who show their work during open studio events and “First Fridays” to the musicians, architects, writers, craftspeople, designers and actors who share their passion on stages and in parks, at world-class performance venues, in book stores and coffee houses.
