Katmandu Fall Festival in Sonoma?

Thinking about checking out the Katmandu Fall Festival on Sept. 16 and 17 in Sonoma's Depot Park. This is the second annual, any recs from the first one?

  1. I'm a local, and this is the first Festival that I've heard about. Sonoma does have a small Nepalese community (Sherpa mostly), and there have been several Tibetan/Nepalese restaurants in town over the years. The current one is Taste of the Himalayas, across from Murphy's on the Plaza. I'd say check it out!

        I went in 2008 & enjoyed the dance, music & people. One of the food booths had a tandoori oven and their bread was divine. This year I'm coming with a big appetite.

      2. I go every year to check out the music and the food and enjoy the environment. Its fun just to hang out and shop and spend the day. 2010 dates are Sept 11-12 and they have wine and beer too. My Friend organizes the festival and I heard that this years will have a lot more food.
