It's about the BEER (& Wine)…

1 - 5pm...Micro-Beer & Organic Wine Tasting*
Mountain Harvest revolves around one of the most impressive small town microbrew tastings you will find anywhere. Brewers and brewery owners love to come to this event to proudly share the fruits of their labors and to "talk beer" with an interested, appreciative crowd. We will have more than 20 craft brewers represented with more than 50 brews to sample.

*The Wine Tasting is sponsored by Quincy Natural Foods

It's about the the MUSIC & MORE…

these are the 2015 bands, stay tuned for what 2016 will bring!





Last Man Standing is a group of gray and grizzled music lovers that carry on when more sensible people have walked away. Like the stone pillars of the desert, these old boys have weathered a few sand storms only to emerge more rounded and smooth. The music we make is a mix of equine-flavored originals from the pen of Joe Tomaselli (cowboy hat), wise, whimsical, and wonky tunes from Alex Muddy Smith (the good looking one in the jaunty cap and expensive guitar), and a mix of tunes from the great Americana songbook with support from Ken Cawley (ball cap, usually sitting down), and Barney Harchis (usually standing/leaning on the dog-house bass). Watch for us at a free-beer event in your home town.


With vocal harmonies, upright bass, percussion, guitar, mandolin, and fiddle, acoustic band, Bagby Station brings a wide variety of sounds with originals and covers of Americana Fashion. Denise Ludington, Tom Couse, Greg Torres, and Mike Wichmann, with different musical influences and backgrounds, have banded together with a common love for playing and sharing music. From rural Mariposa County, like their namesake train stop in the underwater ghost town of Bagby, this group recognizes the importance of music as a way to bring folks together. Because life, like a train stop – all the comings and goings, arrivals and departures – also has the gathering moments to stop and enjoy good tunes and good times together.







Mostly, it's about building CULTURE & COMMUNITY…

This Mountain Harvest festival is one of the major fund-raising efforts that helps to keep Plumas Arts bringing you the countless events, services and programs all year long that helps make our lovely little county the very happening cultural Mecca that it has become.
