Welcome to the Russian River!
The Russian River is a vacation destination surrounded by ancient redwoods in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country just a few miles from the spectacular Sonoma Coast. The Russian River offers fine restaurants, lodging, wineries, activities, boutique stores, farmers markets and joins small eclectic towns including Guerneville, Forestville, Monte Rio, Rio Nido, and Duncans Mills. The Russian River meets the Bohemian Highway a few miles from Occidental and Freestone and joins the Pacific Ocean at Jenner, just North of Bodega Bay.

The Russian River Chamber of Commerce produces three major events for our community every year, which include the Stumptown Daze Parade, Guerneville July 4th Fireworks, and the Holiday Parade of Lights. While the chamber produces other small events as well, these three large community events are free to the public, and we believe they benefit our community by bringing residents and tourists together to enjoy and celebrate our area.

The IRONMAN 70.3 Vineman Triathlon is held in Sonoma County, California (about one hour north of San Francisco). The point-to-point event begins at Johnson's Beach in Guerneville and takes entrants past hundreds of vineyards and dozens of wineries before it finishes up at Windsor High School in Windsor. The course is a tour of Sonoma County's beautiful wine country, passing through four different grape growing regions: the Russian River Region, the Dry Creek Valley, the Alexander Valley, and Chalk Hill.
