The Tomales Town Hall is a rare find: a 19th-century community building lovingly maintained over the years with a deep respect for its past.

For almost 150 years, the Hall has served the people of Tomales, providing space for occasions of all kinds. From town meetings to once-in-a-lifetime moments, the Hall has been witness to the life of its rural community.

As it continues to play a vital role for the town, the Hall is also available as a rental venue.

We invite you to experience West Marin village life in this unique space. The Hall is versatile and an authentic setting for weddings and workshops, concerts and classes, social events and seminars.

The Particulars

The main hall (capacity 150) has a casual but well-considered aesthetic that includes Doug Fir wood flooring with radiant heat, a stage, a bar, a small anteroom, versatile lighting options, and an abundance of natural light from windows along both the north and south walls. The south side of the hall includes a generous, grassy space, partly shaded by a stately Buckeye tree, available for daytime events.

The lower level (capacity 60) is connected to the upstairs hall by an interior staircase, and also has a separate entrance of its own. It includes a utilitarian meeting room and a spacious kitchen.
