Novato's 59th Birthday Party - SOLD OUT!

Post Date:12/19/2018

Join us on Friday, January 25, 2019, from 6pm - 10pm, in a celebration of the City’s 59th birthday celebration featuring an amazing array of food, drink, entertainment, and special honors. Held at the Buck Institute, the iconic structure on the southern slope of Mount Burdell overlooking the rest of Novato, the party will present a showcase of morsels and libations from local restaurants, wineries, and craft breweries called The Taste of Novato. The all-inclusive ticket price, has the added value of first-class mingling and a whole lot of fun. From now until January 1, 2019 tickets are $50. After the New Year the prices is $60. So get your tickets now! 

The event is a tribute to the past, present and future of Novato, its residents, community leaders, first responders, businesses, nonprofits and service organizations. About 200 people attend every year, including many elected officials, making it one of the most anticipated semi-formal galas in Marin County. Perhaps the most anticipated part of the party is the surprise announcement of Novato’s Citizen of the Year.

Large and small businesses of the year receive recognition, as do employees of the year from the Novato Police Department and Novato Fire Protection District. And of course, there is cake, because it’s our birthday! Next year we'll be 60 and we are going to need a bigger cake!

“The celebration of Novato’s birthday is the perfect opportunity to welcome newcomers, celebrate those who enrich our community and unite in a strong bond of friendship,” said Jeanne MacLeamy, a member of the event committee and a former Novato Citizen of the Year and Novato Mayor.

If a semi-formal party is not your style, the City is having the 2nd Annual Community Birthday Party, a free, family-friendly event, on February 2, 2019 at Novato City Hall, from Noon-2pm. This party includes the “Dietrich Stroeh Youth Volunteer of the Year” award presentation, along with food & drink, music, a photo booth, legos and games! And, of course, cake! More details forthcoming, but Save the Date!
