Tiburon plans Little League party, Juneteenth, Diwali on Main Street

A Little League block party and Juneteenth and Diwali celebrations are officially among this year’s festivals returning to Main Street, while Nowruz is heading to Zelinsky Park.


The three Main Street closures were formally approved in separate unanimous votes by the Town Council on Feb. 7 — with debate over alcohol sales at a children’s festival — leaving three more for the Tiburon Peninsula Chamber of Commerce to promote local businesses.


Executive Director DeAnn Biss told The Ark last week she hopes to host Friday Nights on Main festivals in June and August, plus the annual Tiburon Holiday Festival in early December. Those still need the town’s formal approval.


Meanwhile, Nowruz has been bumped from the Main Street docket. Organized by the Tiburon Diversity Inclusion Task Force, the town held its inaugural celebration of the Persian new year on lower Main last year. This year it will be held 3-5 p.m. March 30 at Zelinsky Park and the civic plaza between Town Hall and the Belvedere-Tiburon Library. It will feature live music, cultural dance, food and merchandise related to the holiday.


The task force is also hoping to debut an Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Celebration at Zelinsky Park in May as it expands its lineup of cultural festivals.
