Lighting of the Historic Sonoma Plaza

On Saturday, November 20 we will be celebrating the annual Lighting of the Plaza with thousands of local residents and visitors as we illuminate the historic downtown with hundreds of thousands of lights and enjoy music, food, cookies, cocoa, cider and even some local libations.

We invite you to join the Sonoma Tourism Improvement District, the City of Sonoma and local businesses like B.R. Cohn Winery, The Lodge at Sonoma, Sparc and others and sponsor this amazing event.

The Lighting of the Plaza is the official kick-off to the Holidays in Sonoma Valley as we all count-down and light the towering palm tree that stands over the illuminated Plaza. 

Sponsorships start at $500 and include the chance to be a title sponsor - complete with your logo on the official, reusable Sustainable Party Cup. This keepsake will be used for wine and beer sales and is sure to be used for years as we continue our journey to more environmentally friendly city celebrations.
