Welcome to Penngrove

 

Quaint charm and rural beauty in a classic American small town

Strolling the streets of Penngrove is like stepping back in time to Americana at its finest. The close-knit community of Penngrove exemplifies the best of small-town life with a relaxed, friendly attitude and hometown pride. Bright sunflowers shine a vivid yellow against the cloudless blue sky, and historic buildings offer a glimpse into the days of yore. This cozy enclave provides a respite from big city life, giving residents an abundance of privacy and fresh air. As a Bay Area suburb, Penngrove is only about an hour away from San Francisco, making trips to museums and Michelin restaurants available whenever the mood strikes. 
 
Penngrove real estate is nothing short of idyllic, with expansive lawns, spacious floor plans, and the opportunity for backyard farming or ranching. While other Sonoma County towns have moved away from their agricultural roots, Penngrove has embraced its wide open spaces, and farming is a common hobby among residents. What began as a railroad town is now known for town picnics, parades, and a tight-knit community. In fact, Penngrove’s annual July 4th parade is the stuff of legends and is known throughout Northern California.
 

What to Love:

 
  • Pastoral beauty and small-town charm
  • Proximity to San Francisco 
  • Warm, friendly community

Things to Do

 
Penngrove may be a small town, but residents know how to have fun in a big way. The beloved Holiday Light Parade, held in Penngrove Park, is one of Penngrove’s most anticipated events of the year. The fleet of decorated farm vehicles begins in the park and travels down Main Street. Stony Point Strawberry Farm takes advantage of Penngrove’s warm climate and invites residents to enjoy organic strawberries picked fresh right there in the fields. 

Penngrove Park is also the site of the community’s epic Fourth of July Parade and Picnic. Affectionately called the biggest little parade in Northern California, this Penngrove Social Firemen fundraising event gives classic Americana vibes.
