After many months of buildup and outreach to the community, the inaugural Mill Valley Music Fest on May 7th, a one-day (12-7pm), multi-genre music fest featuring five great bands and an incredible slate of food, drink, art and kids’ activities – all to the benefit of our amazing community – is almost here.
It’s going to be a great day to bring our community together after two incredibly turbulent years. We know that not everyone can attend this event, but we hope that those who can’t will know that one of Mill Valley’s largest events in years is happening in town this Saturday on Friends Field at the Mill Valley Community Center. Please tell a friend!
The confluence of approximately 5,000 attendees will likely make life a bit more complicated on May 7th, and we want those of you who are not attending the event to know that organizers are doing everything in our power to minimize the impact on you.
First off, as you hopefully saw here, we’ve communicated to all attendees that it will be next to impossible to drive to the venue. Instead, Vivalon Rides is serving up free shuttle service from the north and the south all day long, and we’ll have an interior shuttle running throughout Mill Valley all day as well. Lastly, we’ll have enough free bike parking to accommodate multiple Tour de France pelotons.
For the neighborhoods closest to the venue – Eucalyptus Knoll, Enchanted Knolls, Shelter Ridge, Shelter Bay and Sunrise Point, among others – we’ll be posting “No Mill Valley Music Festival Parking” signs along Hamilton Drive to deter attendees from parking in and around those neighborhoods.
