13th Annual Hermitfest Music Festival is the Ebbetts Pass Scenic Byway Celebration

Ebbetts Pass, CA...The Ebbetts Pass Scenic Byway Association (EPSBA) presents the 13th annual scenic byway celebration, known as Hermitfest, on Saturday, September 7th from 11 am – 8pm. This quintessentially Californian, early-fall music festival takes place in Hermit Valley in the Stanislaus National Forest, 38 miles east of Arnold and 23 miles west of Markleeville on the North Fork of the Mokelumne River and features outdoor performances by an array of local musicians.





This year’s lineup includes Bodie Goi Band, Beans Souza, Bill Welles Band, Grover Anderson and the Lampoilers, and the Hermitfest Allstar Band. Music starts at 11:00 am, and officially ends at 8:00 pm, but the joyful celebration of this gorgeous stretch of Sierra-straddling highway often continues around the campfires late into the evening.
Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase along with locally made artisanal items. Telescopes will be set up for stargazing, and experts will be on hand to help identify planets, constellations and stories of the night sky beginning at 9:00 pm, weather permitting.

Primitive campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis for those wishing to spend the night. There are sites in the immediate vicinity of the event as well as a few more on the river side of the road. Additional camping is available nearby in the beautiful Pacific Valley campgrounds. Well-socialized dogs are welcome if kept on a six-foot leash and not left unattended. For those planning to spend the night, there will be late night treats and coffee and goodies on Sunday morning.

Attendees are advised to dress in layers and bring warm clothing since although Fall weather in Hermit Valley (elevation: 7,000 ft) is generally warm, quick afternoon showers are possible and mornings and evenings can be chilly. The route along Highway 4 includes some narrow, twisty and steep sections at the higher elevations between Lake Alpine on the west and Silver Creek on the east side, so large RVs and trailers are not recommended. The pass from either side includes spectacular mountain scenery, so planning extra time for pulling over at designated spots for some sightseeing is highly recommended. Full details on all there is to see and do along the Ebbetts Pass National Scenic Byway can be found at: Scenic4.org and Facebook.com/Scenic4.

For those interested in additional activities on the way to or from the celebration, a stop at the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce offices in downtown Markleeville is a great option for obtaining maps, cold drinks and lots of information about things to do over the weekend. On the Arnold side, the Sierra Nevada Logging Museum’s creative displays are always worth checking out. Next to the parking lot is a trailhead to the dog-friendly Arnold Rim Trail for hikers and mountain bikers. Just 5 minutes away, Calaveras Big Trees State Park gives easy access to trails with spectacular Giant Sequoias. The pools at Grover Hot Springs State Park, outside Markleeville, are expected to be open but calling 530-694-2248 to double check is recommended.

In 2005, Ebbetts Pass was honored with National Scenic Byway status. It is one of only seven nationally-designated byways in California. The EPSBA is the non-profit organization tasked with preserving, enhancing and promoting the unique resources of the byway. A guidebook for the area featuring its history, geology, wildlife and recreation is available from their website at Scenic4.org/Guidebook.

This event is made possible by the generous support of event partners and sponsors including the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce & Cal Waste. Those wishing to join the family of EPSBA sponsors can find sponsorship information here: Scenic4.org/donate. This event is presented under permit with the US Forest Service.
The EPSBA thanks local media and the many local organizations who help to promote this event. Special thanks to Ron Schaner who coordinates and schedules the musicians every year and is a tireless supporter of live music in the Ebbetts Pass area.

For other events in the area and lodging information, contact the Calaveras Visitors Bureau at 209-736-0049 or the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce at 530-694-2475. On the west side, visit BearValley.com, ComeToArnold.com, and VisitMurphys.com.

    Don't forget to tie bars of soap all across the gate. Soap to these stoners are like garlic to vampires, or like jobs are to democrats, or like illegal immigrants are to Republicans.
    There I think I covered it.
    Oh wait, drunks.

    Damn drunks will do anything. They'll eat anything, screw anything, drink anything....oh well, like you said back to normal.

      If the first poster can make a generic, idiotic comment about Democrats, turnabout is fair play.

    Actually I am a lifelong Republican that recently changed to independent or decline to say. I think Trump has gone completely off the deep end. I was just making a logical extension of his Greenland “offer”. Actually it reminded me of Hitler’s claim for the Sudetenland. If it weren’t so damaging to our nation I would really have to laugh. I guess I will have to vote for Biden and let my parents roll around in their graves.

Well dagnabit, this just in.
A chemical found in cannabis was found to help kill pancreatic cancer and was found to be a "major" break through found by an assistant professor for Harvard.
It's on the bigoted, liberal, wishing Hillary wasn't so corrupt so she'd be president, alleged news source Yah 💩

    Cannabis is showing success in slowing down cancers, episodes of seizures in children and more... under fully documented, government-funded studies. Do you research, Skippy.
