Mountain Harvest Fest on the horizon
Festival goers enjoy a beautifull fall day at Mountain Harvest Fest 2009
Plumas Arts Director Roxanne Valladao expects the eighth annual Mountain Harvest Festival and Microbrew Tasting to provide some welcome relief and entertainment for Plumas residents.
At the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds Saturday, Oct. 9, participants can hear great music: Afro-samba-funk-dance from SambaDa, an eight-piece band complete with Brazilian drums, as well as the vintage funk and old-school soul by the DeVilles.
Their performances have been made possible with the support of PG&E and funding from the James Irvine Foundation and California Arts Council and Department of Justice Music Presenting Grant.
There will be fun stuff for kids, craft booths and tasty food - not to mention the micro-brewed beer from some of the finest breweries in the Western U.S. and beyond.
At least 20 breweries will offer selections of their best for tasting.
Wine fans can enjoy tasting a great selection offered by Quincy Natural Foods.
Admission is $10 general or $5 for Plumas Arts members.
Admission is included with an advance beer tasting pass: $35 general public or $30 for Plumas Arts members. At the gate all passes are $40.
QNF will sell general admission tickets. Plumas Arts members may buy discount tickets at Plumas Arts, open Wednesday - Friday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., or online at plumasarts.org or 283-3402.
The Mountain Harvest festival is a major fundraiser that helps Plumas Arts bring events, services and programs all year to Plumas County
