Here are some great upcoming events and for July, August, and September in the Yorkville Highlands and Anderson Valley. Be sure to read all the way through for a special offer on Anderson Valley lodging.
Get your Bastille Day on at Roderer – July 14th 11am-4pm
This is maybe my favorite place in the valley and perhaps because I love bubbly. They have beautiful grounds, and the party will have food, music, and they’ll be pouring special magnums the maker himself has chosen for the event.
Tickets are available by calling them or knowing a member who needs a date. Call the tasting room at 707-895-2288 ex 3222 or email.
“Ribs and Reds” Wine Festival at Meyer Family Cellars – Saturday, August 18
Every year the Yorkville Highlands Growers and Vintners crown the best wine to have with ribs. And if you go, you can vote! This family-friendly event includes ribs, salad, and potato lunch and access to dozens of wines made here in the Yorkville appellation. Kids and grownups alike can win prizes in the wacky Highlands games like the crowd favorite barrel roll. Learn more.
Labor Day Weekend Ice Cream Social
Every Labor Day there is a big ice cream social at the Yorkville post office and fire station. Participate in a raffle and silent auction with great prizes such as wine, olive oil, art and jewelry from local producers and artists.

County Fair and Apple Show, September 14th – 16th, 2018
A classic county fair with livestock, apples, hobby fair, apples, rides, apples, and food. Did I mention apples? You have to get a selfie in front of the giant wall of apples.
