Many of us are ready to make up for lost time by being out with friends and family, enjoying all the beauty and events Marin County has to offer!

After last year’s virtual fair due to the pandemic, the beloved summer tradition makes its in-person comeback from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday through Monday at the San Rafael fairgrounds at 10 Avenue of the Flags. The outdoor event, which celebrates art, agriculture and community, offers fun for all ages, including 28 exciting carnival rides, unique exhibits and concerts featuring pop rock band Pablo Cruise (7:30 p.m. Thursday), percussionist and singer Sheila E. (7:30 p.m. Friday), Sons of Champlin, one of Marin’s most beloved homegrown bands (7:30 p.m. Saturday), hip-hop group Digable Planets (7:30 p.m. Sunday) and Dumpstaphunk (7:30 p.m. Monday). Admission is $20 to $25, which includes general admission to the concerts. (Seating is first-come, first-served.) Youths age 4 and younger are free. Reserved seats for the concerts are $60 and include access to the fair. For more information and to get tickets, go to tickets.marincenter.org. They can also be purchased in person at the gate.

Sip on a libation and enjoy the sunset as well as festive fireworks on the San Francisco Bay at the Independence Day sail that sets off at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Sausalito Yacht Harbor, slip 465, at 501 Humboldt Ave. in Sausalito.

Barbecue and beats

Nothing screams Fourth of the July quite like barbecue and some great tunes. Enjoy a bite, beverage and music by Zydeco Flames, regarded as the West Coast’s premiere Zydeco band, as part of the Rancho Nicasio’s BBQs on the Lawn series on Monday at 1 Old Rancheria Road in Nicasio. Doors open at 3 p.m. and the music starts at 4 p.m. The band, which has performed at the San Francisco Jazz Festival, North Beach Festival and the defunct Marin County Blues Festival, take part in the 21st annual Fourth of July celebration.

Street fun

If you haven’t been attending Novato’s First Fridays on Grant, you’ve been missing out. The outdoor food, music and cultural event on the first Fridays of the month through October returns from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday on Grant Avenue in downtown Novato. Taking advantage of the city’s Living Streets program, retailers stay open late, restaurants and tasting rooms offer expanded outdoor seating and live music, and merchants spill out into the street and offer special entertainment and activities for families. This month’s free event will also include an artisan marketplace featuring jewelry, ceramics, pet products and much more. It’s on Grant Avenue between Machin and Sherman from 5 to 8 p.m. A princess story time with Moana, dancing and face painting is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in front of Village Child at 869 Grant Ave. For more information, go to novato.org or facebook.com/groups/511551636984245.
