Some of this year's exciting features include: “Prosthesis”, a 14’ tall, human-piloted exoskeleton; famed sculptor Duane Flatmo’s latest creation “Rabid Transit”; Andy Tibbets’ “Clock Ship Tere”, a pirate ship with a steel mast that reaches 33’ into the air, and spews sails of fire; and a keynote delivery from MIT Media Lab’s Mitchel Resnick, who will talk about his new book, 'Lifelong Kindergarten' and how makers cultivate creativity through Projects, Passion and Play. There is something for everyone at this family-friendly event, see below for how you can get involved.

Our goal is simple: Keeping Music in the Schools. The PMF Board of Directors believe passionately in the positive influence of music in children’s lives. Proceeds from this annual event will be distributed among Petaluma’s elementary and secondary public schools to provide funding for their music programs.

Funding for the arts is problematic in California, as there is never enough funding for all our school's needs. With your attendance, you are making a difference, and we applaud you!

The following schools received proceeds from the 2011 Festival:

  • The Elementary Schools in the Petaluma, Old Adobe and Waugh School Districts
  • Two Rock, Wilson, Liberty, Dunham, and Cinnabar Elementary Schools
  • Live Oak Charter School, River Montessori Charter School, and Mary Collins School at Cherry Valley
  • Petaluma and Kenilworth Junior High Schools
  • Petaluma and Casa Grande High Schools
