    The State of the City Dinner, featuring The Best of San Rafael, is the premier event of the year for networking with your fellow business, government and nonprofit leaders in Marin County. 

    Develop valuable new connections and strengthen the ones you already have, all while enjoying delicious food, drink, and the beauty and hospitality of Peacock Gap Clubhouse. 

    The State of the City Dinner is a celebration of this amazing community that we love to work, live, learn and play in. 'The Best of San Rafael', which takes place before the formal program, will give attendees the chance to sample food from amazing Chamber restaurants and caterers. 

    To recognize those business, government and civic leaders who have gone above and beyond in their service to San Rafael and Marin, we will be awarding the Large, Small and Joe Garbarino Green Businesses of the Year, the City of San Rafael Employee of the Year, and the Citizen of the Year

    (It's not too late to nominate a business! Click here for the nomination form for Large & Small Business of the Year; click here for the nomination form for Green Business of the Year. Nominations are due March 9.)

    This event also features Mayor Gary Phillips' 'State of the City Address'. This is your opportunity to get up to speed on the latest developments in San Rafael and to get valuable information about the state of our community.
