Upcoming 2015 Sunset Celebration Weekend receives unanimous approval

Posted on February 28, 2015 at 5:10 pm by Clay Curtin

Mark your calendars - Sunset Celebration Weekend is scheduled for June 6-7, 2015. At the Planning Commission’s February 23 meeting, Sunset Magazine received unanimous approval for a one-year extension of the existing use permit to conduct the annual open house event at its headquarters at 80 and 85 Willow Road. The event has occurred each year since 1998 and draws Sunset enthusiasts from all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Average attendance over the two-day event is approximately 20,000 people. This year’s event will maintain similar programming as past years, with attendees being able to experience hands-on activities, participate in wine seminars and cooking demonstrations, and attend a variety of exhibits with Sunset editors on five main stages, including gardening, home design, and travel and adventure. All previously approved conditions of approval will remain in effect, including establishing parking restrictions to prevent parking in nearby residential areas and conducting outreach with the nearby neighborhoods prior to the event. It is uncertain at this time whether there will be future events given the recent sale of the property.
