It’s been a tradition on the coast for many years — perhaps decades — for artists and merchants to hold a sort of public open house in downtown Fort Bragg the first Friday of each month.

On October 7, many galleries and shops will be open from 5pm to 8pm to show off their wares. Some will even offer complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine.

This month’s featured attraction will be a special strolling concert presented by the Mendocino Women’s Choir. Choir members will sing along Franklin, Main, and Laurel Streets, presenting a rousing program of civil rights and empowerment songs, African chants, a Georgia Sea Island spiritual and some engaging ukulele sing-along. It’s pure fun and a must-see event for locals and visitors.

Bicyclists love the Atrium for its central location (close to hundreds of miles of biking trails) and warm hospitality before and after rides.

We’re proud to be among the recommended inns by the event sponsors (Mendocino Coast Cyclists) for the folks coming to participate Friday, October 7, to Sunday, October 9, in the Mendocino Coast Fat Tire Festival.

There will be a film festival (featuring bike-related movies), a poker ride, then metric century (62-miles) and half metric century (35 miles) rides during the weekend.

The metric century and half century will meander through the gorgeous, majestic redwoods of the Jackson State Demonstration Forest, the largest state forest in California with 48,652 acres of redwoods and Douglas fir.
