Master Calendar of Events

Master Calendar of Events

The Master Calendar of Events is a comprehensive listing of special events approved under a special event permit, held partnered with the City of Healdsburg, or activities occurring on public property under a Facility Use Permit administered by Community Services. The calendar serves as a single source for all upcoming events and assists the City and event organizers in scheduling events and activities efficiently.

Do You Know How Your Parks & Recreation Programs are Paid For?

Your Community Services Department is supported by program fees and Transient Occupancy Taxes (TOT) paid by visitors to Healdsburg who stay in the City's hotels, inns and bed and breakfasts. Of the 12% tax paid on the nightly room rate, 2% goes to the general fund for public safety and 10% goes to support your parks, senior center, community center and recreation programs. No general fund money is used to fund this department.
