Cloverdale Performing Arts Center 2015 Plays

Live theater is going strong here in Cloverdale, CA at the Cloverdale Performing Arts Center!  The 2015 is approaching its end, however there are still a couple of great performances to see this year.

Sin, Sex and the CIA
October 9-11 and 16-18, 2015
$18 for Adults, $12 for students and children
Written by Samuel French, this fast-paced offering is a roaringly fun comedy centered around (of all things) the discovery of oil.  However this isn't your normal "strike it rich" story because the oil has been found in an Indian Ocean archipelago.  O.P.E.C. is interested, however they can't seem to figure out who the islands' representative is to meet with them.  Meanwhile, the C.I.A. gets involved in the form of an unlucky hero by the name of Luke James.  Meanwhile, an ex-marine takes over the safe-house and becomes the romantic interest of an overzealous woman. Add a brimstone-and-fire evangelist, his straight-laced secretary and one mysterious woman who all need refuge at the safe-house, and you have the makings for a hilarious situation comedy!

Miracle on 34th Street
December 4-6 and 11-13, 2015
$18 for Adults, $12 for students and children
Just in time for Christmas, this feel-good family play follows the antics of Santa Claus (or is he?) and one little girl who isn't sure she can believe.

Tickets can be purchased online through the "Buy Tickets" link on the web page links above.

So if you're looking for some live entertainment during your Sonoma County vacation here at Auberge on the Vineyard, you still have a chance to see our talented local performers bring the stories of the stage to life!

The 2016 season should be announced this November: check back for information about next year's performances!

Sept 11-12 2015: Cloverdale Car & Motorcycle Show

Beautiful cars, sharp bikes, small-town fair fun, and hearty food and drink: enjoy all this and more during your stay at Auberge on the Vineyard in September!

Whether you love the "classics" or the "vintage", you'll see them all at the 22nd Annual Cloverdale Car and Motorcycle Show! On September 11 and 12, 2015 dozens of cars, bikes and trucks will gather downtown at the Cloverdale Plaza (at the junction of Broad Street and Cloverdale Boulevard).

Friday, September 11, 2015 begins with an evening cruise through town at 7:00 p.m. before dancing the night away to live music by the Unauthorized Rolling Stones in the Cloverdale Plaza at 7:30 p.m.

Wake up early on Saturday, September 12, 2015, grab some coffee and wipe the sleep from your eyes before you come back into town when activities begin at 8:00 a.m. with breakfast and a rummage sale at the Cloverdale Senior Center. Starting at 10:00 a.m., more than 200 classic vehicles line the streets for your viewing pleasure. New this year is the Bavarian-styled Bear Republic Beer Garden with local beer and bratwurst for sale. Or swing by The Pit Stop for beer, wine, and car-show-themed items for sale.

Be sure to stop by and see local illustrator/author Dan Quarnstrom who recently published his book Joyride/Flatout: Hot Rods and Dream Machines, for copies of his book, t-shirts, art prints and more. And stick around through the evening when the Cloverdale Volunteer Firefighter's Association offers their Annual Tri-Tip BBQ and Dance at the Cloverdale Citrus Fair.

While the Car and Motorcycle Show is free to attend, an admission fee is required for the  BBQ and Dance ($24 for adults, $15 for kids).  Tickets are available at the Car Show.

We look forward to hosting your Cloverdale getaway!
