To close out the summer event season, please come celebrate Art + Music on the Avenue and the last evening of our free concert series – San Anselmo Live!  There will be interactive art activities such as rock painting and bracelet making, live demos by local artists, and even a photographic slideshow of historical San Anselmo.

Our very own Archie Williams Jazz Band will perform from 5:00-6:00pm and Stewart & Craver will follow-up with a traditional Celtic and Scandinavian strings performance.  

 Cedars is a featured organization at this free event and will be showcasing their crafts, selling art, textiles & jewelry, and offering activities for children and the young at heart.  Come meet us, shop the beautiful hand-crafted & hand-harvested items and learn about Cedars people and programs. 

 This is your chance to come support our musicians, artists, restaurants, community-driven organizations, and merchants all in one.  This event is brought to you by the Town of San Anselmo in partnership with Cedars and the San Anselmo Arts Commission.
