A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT THE TOWN OF TIBURON

The word "tiburon" comes from the Carib Indian dialect for shark and was adopted by the Spaniards since their earliest explorations of the Americas. Punta de Tiburon (or "point of sharks") as it was originally called, first appeared on maps of the San Francisco Bay in 1776. It's a well-earned name considering the number of sharks that roam the shallow waters of the peninsula that forms the town.

Abundance has always been associated with this area, from the days when over fifty Miwok Indian tribes thrived off the Bay's bounty, to the town of successful citizens and luxurious homes and businesses it's known for today. With its opulence has come a sense of vision. In the 1880's the present town of Tiburon began to emerge as a railroad stop, and soon the ferry became the fastest way to get from Marin County to San Francisco, a service that continues today.

Throughout its history there has been an undeniable link between Tiburon and San Francisco, which has made possible a special kind of cultural exchange between the two. The Festival hopes to continue that tradition.
