Looking for Arts and Entertainment?

The Petaluma Arts Center, next to the Visitors Centers, is a welcoming introduction to all our community has to offer. From there, it just a few blocks to downtown where there are more than a dozen galleries within walking distance. Live theater and music happen almost nightly in historic and intimate venues throughout town.
