Since we published our 2022-23 Enjoy Mill Valley Guide print magazine, which went out to nearly 40,000 homes within the August issue of Marin Magazine, our longtime partners have embedded the 48-page guide on their site here for more than a month,

We’re incredibly grateful for that 94941 love!

The Marin Magazine team also served up a Partner Article about the EMV Guide, which will be showcased in their Better Letter e-newsletter, with 45,000 from within Marin, on Tuesday, November 1st. This article will live on the website homepage for one month, then available on their site forever, always searchable.

These assets are timed not only to promote the Guide, which includes all Chamber members, but also to encourage holiday shopping in Mill Valley – #ShopMV!

As a reminder, the 2022-23 EMV Guide takes a step back from the tumult of the past few years and celebrates the power of community and the arts to heal the body and soul. In 2022, we’ve experienced the thrilling return of our landmark events, including a massive Memorial Day Weekend, the first parade in three years, the inaugural Mill Valley Music FestComedy in the Plaza, the 111th Dipsea RaceConcerts in the PlazaMill Valley Film Festival and the Fall Arts Fest. Winterfest is coming right around the corner!

It’s yet another reminder that Mill Valley delivers big charm, making the indisputable case that this gem, nestled under the redwoods ay the base of Mt. Tamalpais, is a vibrant arts and culture destination with an ever-growing abundance of galleries, boutiques, artisan shops, top-notch restaurants, outdoor activities and a thriving music scene.
