About Lafayette Social


The Lafayette Social platform includes the monthly print magazine (print advertising), social media (digital advertising), custom business articles, sponsorship opportunities, and in-person Socials and events. All of this helps to foster a greater sense of community throughout the town, create a strong and robust social platform for Lafayette residents, and connect locals with our top-notch business partners.

The core team includes Christine Raymond, Publisher and Creative Lead; Jamie Cronk, a Co-Editor and Content Director; Jules Zucker is also a Co-Editor; and Bethany Crowell serves as our Ad Manager. We are also blessed to have dozens of Lafayette residents who contribute to the development of Lafayette Social, volunteering as writers and photographers.

Lafayette Social is 100% sponsor supported by a select group of high-quality businesses. This opportunity is ideal for businesses that are either based in Lafayette or identify Lafayette as a very important market. Learn more about advertising opportunities.

Lafayette Social is a member of the N2 Publishing family of 800+ community-based magazines that work with some of the most affluent communities in the United States. In the Bay Area, sister publications currently serve select neighborhoods in Berkeley/Oakland and Santa Rosa.
