Whether you love 'em or hate 'em, there are plenty of those darn accordions at the festival. At the Cotati Accordion Festival the sound stage features a cast of rotating acts who play 45 minutes sets. Musical styles range from traditional Tex-Mex to whacky rock-pop-San Francisco-mischief music. The festival is family friendly wholesome fun! If you like to dance, there is a separate tent that features polka music and the likes. There is also an "old timer" tent complete with washboard base where festivals goers play their favorite tunes in unison. Cruise the vendor displays.

There's a very friendly family vibe to the Cotati Accordion Festival. You can easily watch your kids play on the swings set and jungle gym. The park is completely enclosed by fences with only a few ways out. Bottom line it's pretty darn safe, which allows parents a little room to breathe and enjoy themselves.
