The mission of The Dirt is to showcase Davis and Yolo county’s unique people, places and events, inspiring readers and promoting local arts, culture and community. The Dirt was founded in 2008 and returned to print in December 2022 after a three-year pandemic hiatus.


The Dirt is published entirely by the support of our local sponsorship partners. If you would like to reach readers while supporting local arts and culture, please consider taking out an ad space in the publication. The Dirt has a circulation of 5,000 and is distributed to a very targeted, local audience who are interested in learning about your business. We will recognize your sponsorship and support on all of our platforms: email club newsletters, social media and on TheDirt.Online

Please get in touch if you would like a media kit with ad rates (which have been kept at their 2020 status). 


Please submit events to our calendar for a FREE digital and print listing. We do our best to catch everything, but we don’t want anyone to miss hearing about your event! Click here to submit events.

Important: Submit events by 5p on the 23rd of each month to guarantee printing in the following month’s issue of The Dirt.
