Two Days of Music & Entertainment on FOUR Stages!

With the 38th annual Summer Arts & Music Festival coming up in less than a month, that means festival season is right around the corner and the Mateel Community Center is getting ready to kick it off in style on the weekend of May 31st and June 1st!

Returning to the banks of the Eel River at Benbow Lake State Recreation Area in southern Humboldt, the Summer Arts & Music Festival will live up its reputation as the most comprehensive and affordable celebration of arts and entertainment on the North Coast. 

Highlighting more than 100 diverse performances on 4+ stages, over 150 handmade craft and food booths, and an outrageous kid zone, plus Belly Dance Temple, Fine Art Exhibition, Summertronica E-Music Tent and the alternative energy showcase of Generation Green, Summer Arts offers delights for the ears, eyes, body, mind and soul.

Drawing performers, vendors, and attendees from across the country (and beyond), it is also one of the great showcases of our local creative arts talent and many of the exhibitors and entertainers hail from right here in Humboldt and Mendocino Counties.  For the full scoop on all the exciting vendors and talent participating, pick up a copy of the official program guide, available now at local newsstands, or download a copy now.

Tickets cost only $15 per day or $25 for the weekend pass and are available at the gates only. Tent camping is offered at various local campgrounds (see inset below) and a free festival shuttle offers service to select campgrounds and the towns of Redway and Garberville.
