Two Days of Music & Entertainment on FOUR Stages!

Returning to the banks of the Eel River at Benbow Lake State Recreation Area in southern Humboldt, the Summer Arts & Music Festival will once again 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. 

Tent camping is offered at various local campgrounds and a free festival shuttle offers service to select campgrounds and the towns of Redway and Garberville. More campground shuttle info will be posted soon.

The 2015 39th Annual
Summer Arts and Music Festival
is generously sponsored by many local businesses and organizations.
