American River Music Festival in Coloma and Lotus tickets are available!
Thursday, July 23, 2015
Coloma and Lotus will be full of fresh, live music at the 9th Annual American River Music Festival on September 18-21, 2015. See over 30 new, danceable music performances. The entire town becomes a music festival! The main stage is along the river in Lotus, with shade and grass for barefoot dancing. Main Stage artists this year include The Infamous Stringdusters and Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers. Great music, food and beverages, fun kids’ activities, and a refreshing swimming hole at the South Fork American River make this a fantastic main location.
Music all over town
The whole Coloma-Lotus community will be full of music from small performances at local cafes and restaurants, morning and night. The hospitality in town is fantastic, and most of the people you will see staffing the Festival are local volunteers who also love the great music all weekend. Some of the music has a jammy, rocking funky sound, and others has more of a folk, grass, country sound. You can lend your own voice to sing-a-longs with the The Love Choir!
Catch the music bus
Good news - the Festival provides shuttles between the musical venues both day and night, making it easy to get to your choice of performers and musical workshops. Our guests at Eden Vale Inn love that they can just drive a few miles, park, and enjoy the whole day without having to drive around town. If you do like to stretch your legs, many locations are a pleasant walk away from each other.
The thrill of the Musician Showcase
If you can, come early! The Friday night kickoff is one of the festival’s most loved events: the Musician Showcase. Ten performers compete for top two slots to go on the Main Stage. Root for your favorites, and get a great preview of the music to come on the weekend.
American River Music Festival tickets can be bought for one day or for the whole weekend. Youth tickets are a lower price, and kids 7 and under are admitted free! Check the website for the options.
