36th Annual Butter & Egg Days Parade & Festival


A special thank you to all of our Sponsors and Volunteers for keeping the parade moving!

The 2017 Butter & Egg Days Parade Theme is “Petaluma – City of Makers!” Celebrating Petaluma’s ingenious makers, innovative entrepreneurs, producers and inventors from our past and present.  The “Maker” theme gives us the opportunity to honor our community of creative, curious people that make Petaluma shine!


Petaluma’s Butter & Egg Days Parade celebrates all things Petaluma, the history and the stories we love to tell. The 2017 theme, “Petaluma – City of Makers!” recognizes the importance of the innovative spirit that fuels the community to create and craft products and ideas.


Petaluma’s maker culture highlights our city’s artisan and entrepreneurial spirit, encompassing businesses ranging from cheese makers, brewers, winemakers, dairy and agricultural producers, to organizations that support the makers of art, film and music. It’s a melding of imaginative people and authentic place that makes Petaluma a place people want to call home.


“We are very excited about the opportunity to acknowledge the many special people, cultures, businesses, and organizations that have contributed to Petaluma’s growth and reputation as a city from the past continuing to the present day,” said McCusker.

The Festival opens at 10am and the main Parade steps off at Noon
