Alpine County events coming up for the summer

Classical and pop music, historic walking tours and the West’s largest and most grueling bicycle ride are just a few of the great special events and activities planned in Alpine County this summer and fall.

Long-running events scheduled for the season include the 18th annual Death Ride: Tour of the California Alps, July 10, which hosts 2,500 riders on a 126-mile course with 16,000 feet of vertical climbing on five mountain passes, and the Bear Valley Music Festival, July 31-Aug. 15, now in its 31st season, featuring both classical and pops music.

Another popular annual event is the ninth High Sierra Music Festival, July 1-5, with more than 20 of the hottest contemporary bands performing at Bear Valley. The Hope Valley Music Series will also return to a variety of venues in and around the county’s most beautiful high mountain meadow, including Sorensen’s Resort.

Kirkwood Ski and Summer Resort has a full season of events planned, highlighted by A Day at the Wood on July 31, featuring the hot Cajun sounds of regional favorite Mumbo Gumbo. Other activities during the day include a regional arts and crafts show and a Cajun food fest.

In addition to its mountain bike park, climbing wall and adventure center, Kirkwood will also feature such events as the Campfire Cowboys Poetry and Music on July 3, a series of flyfishing workshops, guided llama and natural history hikes, the Doug Robinson Climbing Clinic, Sept. 4, the Banff Festival of Mountain Films, Sept. 5, plus a lot more.
