Saturday, April 30th
Since 1900, sailboats have been racing to Vallejo in what is now known as The Great Vallejo Race. This year, the annual race – hosted by the Vallejo Yacht Club – turns 122, and over 100 boats will be racing from Berkeley to Vallejo. Grab a beer at our Ferry Taproom or Coal Shed Brewery, and catch the final stretch of the race. Then, join the skippers over at the Vallejo Yacht Club for BBQ, burgers, a Tiki Bar, and live music!
Enjoy A Brew with A View
Depending on the conditions, the fastest boats should be coming through the Mare Island Strait around 1:30p, with boats rolling through up until 4p or later. The boats will race right by our Ferry Taproom, and rafting up in the Vallejo Yacht Club harbor, just South of our Coal Shed Brewery.
Party at The Vallejo Yacht Club
Once you've had your fill of watching the boats roll in, head over to the The Vallejo Yacht Club for BBQ burgers, beer, an outdoor Tiki Bar, and live music! The steel drum band will begin at 2pm on the outdoor patio, with the party ramping up at 7pm when the Darrel Edwards Lighting Up the Soul band take the stage.
The event is open to the public, so drop by and join the celebration at this historic Vallejo institution.
