About Us

The Pacific Sun weekly newspaper was founded in April of 1963 and is the longest-running alternative newsweekly on the planet. Originally conceived as a West Coast version of The Village Voice, which came along eight years earlier, the Sun has for half a century focused on Marin—its people, politics, the environment, education and the arts.

Our goal is to cover this unique community—to inform, and be informed by, our readers in a thoughtful, provocative, literate, witty and honest manner.

The Pacific Sun publishes every Wednesday, delivering 20,500 copies to more than 535 locations throughout Marin County.

We also offer a weekly newsletter called Pacific Sun This Week, which features the stories from our print edition, and more. Sign up for the newsletter here. Get in touch with Pacific Sun staff here.
