Goals and Mission

This two-day festival will celebrate the City of Vallejo, Historic Mare Island and Solano County. Vallejo Waterfront Weekend will showcase why we choose to live, work, and play in this vibrant community.

The goal of the steering committee is to ensure that attendees (residents and visitors alike) enjoy the weekend, participate in its growth and look forward to its return each year.

In addition to providing a fun-filled event for the entire community, Vallejo Waterfront Weekend provides much more. The mission of the event committee is to unite the community while also providing various non-profits a venue to showcase their organizations and raise much needed funds. Net proceeds from this weekend will be dedicated to the rehabilitation of the Mira Community Cultural Center. We are partnering with business, labor and Rebuilding Together Solano County to turn this historic neighborhood landmark into the jewel that will welcome visitors entering our city.

This event is the vision of a group of organizations who have decided to combine resources and talent to put on a family friendly event that will showcase our vibrant community.

They include: City of Vallejo, Better Vallejo, Empress Theater, Foster Greatness, Greater Vallejo Recreation District (GVRD), iRecreate, Kayaking and Biking Vallejo, Mad Hatter, Mira Community Cultural Center, Napa Solano Central Labor Council, Obtainium Works, Rebuilding Together Solano County, Solano County Transit, Solano Rowing Club, Straits of Mare Island Rowing Club, Vallejo Admirals, Vallejo Arts Alliance, Vallejo Chamber of Commerce, Vallejo Community Arts Foundation, Vallejo Convention & Visitors Bureau, Vallejo Yacht Club.
