An event supporting Novato Schools


Each year, the Tour of Novato and Community Fair helps to raise funds for our local Novato schools. The fun-filled event has collected over $940,000 towards supporting our local school system since their first event in 2008!

When it comes to fundraisers and community events, the Tour of Novato is one that I will always hold close to my heart. The Tour of Novato and Community Fair is a celebration of our amazing Novato schools and the students and educators within them. Along with a Novato-wide celebration event, it is also a fundraiser to help support our local education system. Not only is this event the largest single fundraising event for our local schools, it is also a showcase of some of our incredible student talent.

Aside from their main goal of raising funds for local schools, the community behind the Tour of Novato and Fair aims to create a day full of fun for all ages. The event is ideal for families, and folks of all ages are encouraged to attend. Whether you are an experienced cyclist looking for a great way to support your community, or if you’re just interested in great food and entertainment to enjoy with your family, you are sure to have a great time at the Tour of Novato and Community Fair each year.

My wife is an educator and I am a firm believer in the importance of a high quality education, so the Tour of Novato project was one that I couldn’t have been more excited about. When developing a collection of marketing tools for this event, I wanted to highlight several components: it is going to be a great day surrounded by folks dedicated to enriching education, as well as the specifics of the event itself. The schoolhouse red and #2 pencil yellow evoke memories of traditional education, a time that many consider to be the most important of their lives. I am incredibly honored to be the artist behind the Tour of Novato and Community Fair Logo, street signs, flyers, banners for the event.
