Shopping. Enjoy the hometown feel of Moraga with its quaint downtown and annual Pear & Wine Festival. Stop by the Moraga Farmers’ Market at the Moraga Center with over 40 local California farmers and gourmet food purveyors every Sunday, 9am to 1pm. Fun events like the Halloween Harvest Festival, Costume Parade, the Grape Escape and the Easter Egg Hunt help connect children of market goers to the farmers. Hop over to the tree-lined streets, wide variety of shops, restaurants and specialty stores in Lafayette and catch the annual Taste of Lafayette, the Lafayette Reservoir Run and the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival.

Arts Galore. Founded in 1950 as the Orinda Arts Council, the Lamorinda Arts Council has been stimulating, supporting, and advocating for the visual and performing arts in the schools and community for the last sixty years. Key contributions to the schools and community include Lamorinda Idol, the high school Visual Arts Competition, Art in Public Places, Orinda Library Gallery, Art of Mixology craft cocktail competition, Orinda Jazz Festival, Arts in Bloom Festival, school musicals and much more.

Outdoor Adventures. The Lafayette Reservoir is an all-year day-use area ideal for hiking, biking, jogging, fishing, boating and picnicking, located off Highway 24 only one mile from the Lafayette BART station.
