Boasting a long and rich history of cultural enrichment, Vallejo is home to a symphony orchestra, choral groups, theatrical companies, dance troupes, and a visual arts organization. Even the Greater Vallejo Recreation District offers classes and workshops in performing and visual arts. The Fetterly Playhouse Theater is home to the Vallejo Music Theater and provides a stage for several other talented groups including the Solano Repertory Company. Many of the community's annual events are culturally driven, such as the Vallejo Artists Open Studios, the Shoreline Jazz Art & Wine Festival, and the Bay Area Blues Society's waterfront Blues Festival. Many newcomers are drawn to Vallejo for its colorful diversity and sense of revival and revitalization. New artists are joining those who have called the city home for several decades, blending in with families, young professionals, and retirees.
