Petaluma Events Calendar
When it comes to the size of the population, Petaluma is on the small side (58,921). But small certainly doesn't equate with sleepy in Petaluma. Our Events Calendar is packed with activities that invite visitors to share in our community spirit and fun whether it is celebrating Petaluma's agricultural heritage, love of the arts, riverfront location or diverse culture.
