Point Reyes Weekend

Far West Fest

2011 details: July 16, 2011!

Head out to Far West Fest!  This day, voted Best Music Festival in Marin, benefits Community Radio KWMR and the Love Field Open Space — both beloved West Marin institutions.

The Far West, in its fifth year, expects 2,000 attendees in 2009. It is a GREEN event with 100% recycling/ zero-waste, carbon offset options, and no plastic packaging on site. Food vendors are local purveyors of organic, sustainable offerings including oysters, fresh produce, grass fed meats, and baked goods.
The festival hosts two stages, offering a lineup of blues, country, rock, folk, experimental, bluegrass and world music, internationally touring acts and local favorites. In addition to two music stages, the Far West Fest offers a supervised Kidz Zone that features interactive activities, healthful snacks, and kid-centric live music and storytellers. Clowns, jugglers, and other circus acts dot the landscape throughout the day. Dozens of regional arts and crafts vendors line the periphery, and a “Localization Zone, sponsored by “Think Local First” offers area nonprofits an opportunity to interface and share their mission with the community.
