Festival Description

This great day of incredible music and basking in sunshine will take place at the one and only Zorthian Ranch, a historical party place built by hand out of junk, spare parts, and the relics of legendary parties. Dip in the pool, explore the grounds, visit the animals, play around, and kick up dust. The first bit will feature acoustic, unplugged performances spread all over the ranch in every nook and cranny, then we’ll plug in for the rest of the day. Don’t miss the square dance! Last year we kicked up a 10 foot cloud of dust.
