Butter & Egg Days 2021 - we had hoped to create a community celebration to honor the event in September, but unfortunately have had to cancel.

We look forward to celebrating with our traditional parade and festival in 2022, on April 23.

Dear Petaluma Butter & Egg Days participants and community members,

We were heartbroken that we had to cancel the Butter & Egg Days Parade twice in a row in 2020 & April 2021 due to COVID-19.

This is the 40th year of the (yes, the parade turns 40 this year) and we want to honor Butter & Egg Days being the heart of the Petaluma Community.  We can't bring back a full blown parade this year BUT we are planning on a community celebration.

The safety, health, and wellbeing of our attendees, vendors, sponsors, and our incredible army of volunteers is our highest priority.  The Butter & Egg Days is a large event that brings people from far and wide to celebrate with us.  Mega events (as the state calls them) still has strict covid 19 guidelines, thus we have decided to wait until 2022 when hopefully all restrictions will be lifted.


Be assured that we are committed to bringing this beloved Petaluma tradition back in full force in 2022.

The Petaluma Downtown Association sends you our heartfelt thanks for supporting local businesses, and send you their best wishes for a safe and healthy reopening.  For everyone that signed up and paid parade fees in 2020, rest assured that they will be rolled over to the new event date in 2022.
