Summer 2011 ongoing events in Sonoma County

A couple weeks ago I wrote about the big festivals going on during the summer in Sonoma County.  This post is about ongoing, such as weekly, smaller events.

First Fridays
In the Railroad Square section of downtown Santa Rosa on the first Friday of every month during the summer (June-Sept).   Arts & crafts, food, wine, and music.

Healdsburg Concert Series
Live music in the town plaza every Tuesday evening through August.  Bring a blanket, fried chicken, potato salad, and a bottle of Chardonnay.  Get there early as the plaza fills up.

Rodney Strong Concerts
Once a month during the summer you can picnic, drink, and listen to music in the vineyards at Rodney Strong Winery near Healdsburg.  Pat Benatar is this year's big name performer.

Santa Rosa Downtown Market
Every Wednesday evening.  It's part farmers market, part crafts, part wine tasting.  Have dinner from one of the downtown vendors.

Windsor Nights on the Green
Thursday farmers market and concerts.
