The Mateel Community Center, a non profit organization, is proud to announce the 46th Annual Summer Arts & Music Festival for Saturday June 24th and Sunday June 25th. 

This beloved community tradition has been a mainstay of Southern Humboldt community culture for over four decades. 

The North Coast Journal readers voted Summer Arts “Best Music Festival 2020”, because this beloved family-friendly event provides a gathering space to enjoy local, regional and national live music and performing artists at various stages on the festival grounds, plus a fun-filled kids zone and over 50 international foods, fine arts and unique artisan crafts, and non-profit groups who come to create an arts village situated along the Eel River.

The Mateel staff and board of directors are pleased to announce that the festival has a new home at County Line Ranch. Seven miles south of Benbow State Park along a lovely stretch of the south fork of the Eel river, located to the east of highway 101 in Cooks Valley

The County Line Ranch property is largely flat, partially wooded with ample space for both the event and for onsite vehicle parking providing daily in and out options, access to vehicles for the general public, a huge improvement for us all. This spacious property allows for a more generous fairway layout for vendors, performers and attendees, another great option for the people that make up the festival experience. We will produce the same event as you already love, but better, as we can now have the option to spread out combined with the ability to have a quality river access experience, while keeping the music going later into the evening, providing an overall improved experience for everyone. There will be ample opportunities for vendors and performers to apply, as well as temporary work jobs and volunteer positions to be filled.

Join us for the 46th Summer Arts & Music Festival the weekend of Saturday & Sunday June 24th & 25th!

Stay tuned for link to purchase advance tickets!
