Bay Day — October 1, 2016

Bay Day is a newly dedicated annual celebration spearheaded by Save the Bay to designate October 1, 2016 as a special day when the Bay Area comes together to celebrate San Francisco Bay. On Bay Day, dozens of cultural attractions, community organizations, small businesses, non-profits and parks all around the Bay Area will host special, Bay-themed programs so residents can explore, enjoy, and learn more about our Bay.

Cities and counties are taking action to officially recognize October 1, 2016 and the first Saturday of October in future years as "Bay Day."

As the administrator of several regional projects working to enhance San Francisco Bay, including the San Francisco Estuary Partnership, the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority, the San Francisco Bay Trail and the San Francisco Bay Area Water Trail, ABAG is requesting that all cities and counties in the Bay Area pass proclamations recognizing October 1, 2016 and the first Saturday of October in future years as "Bay Day," in recognition of this valuable resource that defines our region.

The resolution template is available here for members use. When your Council or Board of Supervisors has passed the resolution, please email Laura Thompson and we will update the list of cities, towns, and counties that are participating in the effort to celebrate this great resource that shapes the Bay Area.
