A “Dream Team” of Oldey Time bands will be performing on two stages, including Huckleberry Flint, Compost Mountain Boys, Striped Pig, and Bucky Walters.

Also performing will be Tumbleweeds, Clean Living, and the Sidekicks along with barbershop quartet Mirth First and the Redwood Coast Women’s Chorus.

There will be demonstrations in blacksmithing, lathe turning, copper-smithing and spinning. You can glaze a ceramic piece, you can enjoy a puppet show in our newly restored theater, and you can delight in the performance of the commedia play Two Lovers Too Many which will be performed by the St. Bernard’s Drama class.

Check out the new wood fire kiln, just recently completed after two years of diligent work by over 100 volunteers.

It’s a fun day for the whole family!
