The Valero Benicia Refinery is located northeast of San Francisco on the Carquinez Strait of San Francisco Bay. It processes sour crude oils into gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and asphalt. The refinery receives crude oil feedstocks via a marine dock and crude oil pipelines connected to a southern California crude oil delivery system. Most of the refinery's products are distributed via pipeline and truck rack into Northern California markets. 

Since Valero’s acquisition in 2000, the facility has been continually improved and upgraded.

The City of Benicia has been a long term sponsor of the Benicia Makerspace’s STEAM Discovery Festival and our other events such as this within the city.

Benicia Arts and Culture Commission works cooperatively with council, city boards and commissions, and other public and private organizations in creating and promoting art and cultural programs and activities within the City.
