If you want to experience the true essence of charming Geyserville….

Then attending our annual May Day Festival is a must.


The Geyserville Chamber of Commerce is a proud sponsor of the event.


It’s hard to believe that our time honored annual tradition dates back to 1925.  

The Geyserville community invites visitors to gather and celebrate spring’s beautiful rejuvenation.

Key Event Details:


1. Admission is FREE!  

Noon – 4:00pm

Located at the beautiful Hoffman Picnic Grounds.  

A large grassy area surrounded by picturesque vineyards.


2. Come Hungry!

The Geyserville Kiwanis Club invites:

local chefs, wineries, and organizations to participate in a Rib Cook-Off Competition.

This is serious business.  

Fifteen teams work hard to perfect their version of the best ribs you’ve ever tasted.

Past participants include:

  • Pech Merle Winery
  • Geyserville Fire Department
  • Mercury Winey
  • Wilson Artisan Wineries
  • Kiwanis and Odd Fellows of Geyserville

There is a minimal cost to sample each team’s ribs, and it is well worth it!

Don’t forget to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award.

Winning teams last year received an engraved belt buckle.

3. Bring The Kids!



Games, face painting, crafts, and a rock climbing wall!
