Q. Can I bring my dog?

A. We ask that you not bring your dogs or other pets. Dogs are certainly not allowed in the audience or the vendor area. There is no place on site to safely keep your pet, and the temperatures can get quite warm, making it dangerous to leave your animal in your vehicle.

Q. What about parking?

A. Parking is free. But since it is somewhat limited, it will help if you carpool if you can!

Q. Can I bring my own ice chest? Alcoholic beverages?

A. No ice chests should be brought onto the festival grounds. Food and beverages will be for sale at the event. Craft Beer and Wine will be available for purchase on site from Cedar Crest Vineyards. Outside alcohol is prohibited, due to the licensing regulations.

  1. Hello I have a crepe business called Crepetivity and would love to set-up and sell sweet and savory crepes at your event this July. Please check out my website: and my facebook page to get a bit more information about us or you can just email or call with questions. Please let me know if this is a possibility. Thank you,

    1. Hi Hannah, thanks for asking about the Summer Mountain Music and Arts Festival. For this year we already have the food vendors sorted out but we will look over your website – sounds like it could be a nice addition to our event. This is just our second festival and we are not sure how many people are going to show up but we had about 400 people last year. Anyway, thanks again for writing and asking – I will bring this up with the board so we can talk it over for looking at next year. Take care.

      Best regards,

      Tim Garrison

  2. We just added the Comfort Inn in Red Bluff to our list of sponsors. They have generously agreed to provide lodging to our out of town bands and guests at a substantially reduced rate. For information contact us at
