Benefits of Tourism & Hospitality
The hospitality and tourism industry in Sonoma County comprises one out of every 10 jobs and provides almost $223 million in revenue for local and state governments. This revenue is used for things like parks, economic development, cultural and historical festivals and events, affordable housing and other uses. (For more information on the tourism industry, see the statistics page.)
Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
At Sonoma County Tourism, our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is unwavering. We strive to ensure those in our workforce, and participation in our board and committees reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. We embrace diversity of identity, experience, and thought. We will elevate, provide access to, and intentionally integrate this abundance of input across our organization and within the stories we create that inspire travel to the region.
As an organization that resides in Sonoma County, we align with the County of Sonoma in recognizing that we are on the ancestral lands of the Coast Miwok, Pomo, and Wappo, who are the original caretakers of this area. We respectfully acknowledge the Indigenous peoples who have been stewarding and maintaining their relationship on this land as knowledge keepers for millennia.
