• Sausalito

    - A great place to do Business

  • Business Opportunities Abound

    With over a million visitors every year, arriving by ferryboat or across the Golden Gate Bridge, by bike and by car, Sausalito is a haven for the hospitality industry, catering to the many needs and wants of the tourists arriving from around the world.  Sausalito is also a business base for small, entrepreneurial companies doing business in San Francisco or Silicon Valley due to its proximity to these business centers and the more favorable ambiance of a small waterfront community, where employees have access to great outdoor venues….and don’t’ have to fight for parking! Sausalito residents are affluent, sophisticated and well-educated, making for a local market that can appreciate and support high caliber products and services.

    Events:Concierge Tour

    Sausalito is proud to host a wide range of special events and activities, year-round, for old and young alike.


    One of the most important events held every year is the Sausalito Art Festival which attracts thousands of people to Sausalito over Labor Day weekend.  The Sausalito Chamber runs a food booth at the Sausalito Art Festival, along with many of the other non-profit organizations in Sausalito. We encourage Chamber members to volunteer to work at the food booth as it is a great opportunity to meet other Chamber members and business people as well as local residents and visitors to town.


    No matter what the season, Sausalito offers a full calendar of festive street fairs and parades, as well as outdoor concerts and special events on the waterfront. Such events include: The Hotel Concierge Tour in Spring, Jazz & Blues by the Bay in Gabrielson Park in Summer, Chili Cook Off and Celebrate Sausalito in Fall and the Gingerbread House in Winter. There truly is something for everyone year round.
