100 Ways to Celebrate the 100th

Walnut Creek’s 100th anniversary celebration brought the community together to commemorate “all things Walnut Creek” – from our great downtown to the open space, from arts and culture to gardens and wildlife. We celebrated the traditions of the community’s past and looking forward to the future.

The year featured “100 Ways to Celebrate the 100th,” including three Signature Centennial Events and a host of other events and activities sponsored by the community.
