The Lafayette Chamber offers our local businesses, organizations and members the opportunity to showcase your business to our community through the following events.
The Lafayette Art & Wine Festival, held each year on the third weekend in September, is the largest event in Lamorinda and one of the five biggest outdoor festivals in Contra Costa County. Over 50,000 attended in 2016, strolling among stalls of art, handmade crafts, sampling foods from top local restaurants, and enjoying quality wines and microbrews.
Runners, walkers, strollers and dogs on leashes take on the town at the Lafayette Res Run for Education. Proceeds benefit local schools. Runs start at 8am. Vendor fair, music, kids activities and breakfast show support for the 1500+ athletes.
Fun, family-friendly celebration – tree lighting, live music, community sing-a-long, photo booth, crafts — and Santa’s “sleigh” as Lafayette’s historic fire truck, Old Betsy!
