Welcome to Danville Summerfest 2016!
We THANK YOU for joining us at this year's Danville Summerfest 2016 brought to you by the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce!

We have street Fairs such as Summerfest, classic car shows, plays and community concerts. We hope you'll visit us to find out why Danville is a special place.
Art and Artists! Summerfest features outstanding artists from the western United States. Enjoy your favorite returning artists and the work of new artists in the jewelry, glass, ceramic, painting and photography categories. Walk along picturesque Hartz Avenue and you can’t help but be amazed by the technical ability and creativity of the fine artists who participate in our event. Whether it's a whimsical ceramic bowl, a finely sculpted gold ring, or a captivating photograph, fairgoers will find that special item for keeping or giving away to someone special!
Families attending Danville Summerfest will enjoy an emphasis on youth activities. The children's area includes amusements geared for kids of all ages such as Spider Mountain, a Climbing Rock Wall, Pony Rides and Bungie Jumping! The San Ramon Valley Historical Museum runds a train ride in the Faz Restaurant Parking Lot.
New this year - the East Bay Chapter of Blue Star Moms open up the downtown Veterans Hall to present an extensive Model Train Display by the European Train Enthusiasts. This HO scale layout features detailed scale versions of European landscapes which comes alive as trains pass through country sides, villages and towns, over bridges and wind through mountain tunnels. Those wishing to see this unique operating train layout are asked to make a nominal donation to the Blue Star Moms who use it to send care packages to deployed US Military Personnel, provide support for returning veterans, aid and assist veterans wounded in action, and provide support for the families of fallen soldiers.
Another New Event this year - "Finding Dory Scavenger Hunt" with over 20 specialty boutiques participating. Here’s your chance to win great raffle prizes while interacting and having fun with local downtown merchants. "Let’s find Dory!"
