Traveling Wilburys RevueLafayette’s first Community Day

Lafayette Community Foundation (LCF), The City of Lafayette and Lafayette Chamber of Commerce are partnering for Lafayette’s first Community Day on Saturday, June 4, 2022. This special day includes a morning welcome in Park Plaza and then an opportunity for volunteerism in which community members can sign up in advance for a work party for a select volunteer project. Afterward, everyone is invited to come back together at Park Plaza for a Community Day celebration that includes information about the participating nonprofits, activities, BBQ, live music by the Traveling Wilburys Revue from 12:30pm-2:30pm and the chance to recognize all those who helped make this new annual event a big success!
 
In 1988, George Harrison (you may have heard of him) brought a few of his friends together to cut a “B” sidetrack, “Handle Me with Care.” his friends were Jeff Lynne (ELO), Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, and Bob Dylan. This launched a couple of albums calling themselves the Traveling Wilburys. They never toured. They never played before an audience. At Community Day, we are bringing you as close as we can to their gathering. Visit https://lafayettecommunityday.org for more details and to sign up for a volunteer shift.
 
 

About the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival


Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022 (10am–7pm) & Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022 (10am–6pm)


The Lafayette Art, Wine and Music Festival is perhaps the largest annual festival in Contra Costa County. In 2019, over 85,000 people strolled among the booths of art and handmade crafts, enjoying foods from our local restaurants, food vendors and food trucks as well as quality wines and microbrews, pausing to enjoy continuous music from our four stages.

Every year our single highest purpose is to make sure we produce a safe and clean environment for our attendees, our vendors and our volunteers at our community events. We will carefully follow the guidelines and protocol developed by the CDC and the California Department of Public Health. Contra Costa County officials have aligned with those agencies.

Admission: FREE!

Music: FREE!

Kid Zones: Cost varies per ride/activity.

Glasses (wine/beer) and Drink Tickets are sold throughout the festival. Look for ticket booths. Combination packages available with big discounts. You MUST BE 21 years of age to purchase glasses, drink tickets and be served!
