August festival slated for Belden

For the Funk of It music festival representatives went before members of the Plumas County Board of Supervisors, which approved the festival June 18.

The festival will be held at the Belden Town Resort on Aug. 8 – 11.

This is the fourth festival in a series of five for that remote community along the Feather River.

Jim Graham of Plumas County Public Works who has been managing these festivals, said that all of the paperwork is in place. Environmental Health Director Jerry Sipe added the inclusion of hand washing station and recycling to the event’s amenities.

Road construction in the Feather River Canyon is expected to be done by the time the festival is slated to begin.

Graham said that festival organizers hire off-duty California Highway Patrol officers to control traffic at the Yellow Creek Bridge construction site. This construction is right at the bridge to Belden.
