40th Anniversary logo

The City of San Ramon is excited to be celebrating its 40th Anniversary!

In 1983, San Ramon voters decided overwhelmingly to incorporate as a city. Officially incorporated on July 1, 1983, the community assumed leadership over development, police, parks, and other services. A new library, community center, and parks were quickly in the planning stages.


40th Anniversary Celebrations

The City will be celebrating throughout the year with commemorative giveawaysspecial events, and more!

40th Anniversary Gala Invitation

The City of San Ramon celebrated its 40th year of incorporation with an enchanting evening gala, which kicked off in the City Hall Rotunda with special Sips, Stories & Small Bites. The festivities continued into the San Ramon Community Center for a gourmet dinner in the Fountain Room, including a sparkling champagne toast. Then, the night was topped off at the after party, featuring two locations with music – DJ spinning top hits from the '80s to today to dance the night away, and a live jazz band for those who preferred a more relaxed vibe. A totally awesome dessert bar with favorite treats from 1983 were a hit at the after-party.
