The end of summer is coming, but there is still time to soak up the warm sun and relax before the fall season is upon us. From farmer’s markets to outdoor concerts, August is the perfect time to visit Sonoma for a summer’s end getaway. Read on for our recommendations on what to do in the area during your August visit.
Treat Yourself to a Sonoma Olive Oil Body Polish
This month the Garden Spa’s special is the Sonoma Olive Oil Body Polish (50 Minutes, $105). This treatment exfoliates and hydrates the skin using sea salt and local, organic olive oil. Olive oil contains antioxidants which combat aging, prevents free radical damage and helps restore skin’s smoothness. The use of olive oil as a skin and beauty product dates back to ancient times and was even used by Cleopatra as a beauty secret.
Make a trip of it. Book the Garden Spa Package and receive a 50-minute massage or facial with a 2-night stay!
Events Around Sonoma
Weekly Farmer’s Market
The Farmer’s Market on the Plaza continues until the last Tuesday in September. It is a weekly tradition that brings locals and visitors alike out to enjoy the great weather, great music, and great food. The Sonoma Plaza is a short walk from MacArthur Place and gives you all the small town feels as you stroll towards the lively crowd. Of course there will be wine, but there are food trucks serving up all kinds of local fare, a local band preforms every week, and of course fresh fruits and vegetables.
Broadway Under the Stars
Broadway Under the Stars has one month left! This amazing group of Broadway players come to Sonoma to perform in an open-air theater, under the stars, classic hits that will get you singing along. The performances are hosted at the Jack London State Historic Park which boasts its own history as being the home of famed author Jack London. It’s not a true Sonoma event without pre-show picnicking, food trucks, and multiple Sonoma County wineries pouring each evening.
Concerts at Green Music Center
Music of today and yesterday is featured weekly at Green Music Center. In August, you can see Boyz II Men, Hunter Hayes, Chris Botti, and others. Voted Best Music Venue in Sonoma County, the Green Music Center offers unparalleled concert experiences, whether you’re inside the stunning Weill Hall or soaking in the sounds of Summer on beautifully landscaped Weill lawn.
