  • IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM DRY DIGGINGS FESTIVAL: The destruction of the Caldor fire has made it very clear, that it would be impossible to hold the event in Placerville. Our thoughts are with the community affected by these devastating fires, and the brave firefighters putting their life on the line to battle these raging fires.
    We however do have some positive festival news to report. Our team has worked very hard the last 48 hours to find a new venue that could accommodate an event of this magnitude in such a short amount of time. We are very excited to announce, Dry Diggings Festival will take place in Grass Valley at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
What We Love
  • More than a dozen incredible bands packed into 2 days
  • Handpicked vendors providing delicious food to accommodate everyone
  • A wide variety of art, clothing & craft vendors and much more!
  • Altamont Beer Works will be serving up their finest brews
Dry Diggings Music Festival is more than just a concert - it's an unforgettaable experience. Can you imagine a better way to end the summer than this brilliant combination of live music, beer, games, art, and camping? Over the weekend musical guests like Stephen Marley, Tribal Seeds, The Expendables, Dirty Heads, Collie Buddz, Common Kings and more will hit the stage with reggae, dancehall, rock, and beyond. Between sets, grab some tasty food, play cornhole and other games, peruse vendors, or even just kick back with the fam back and enjoy the positive vibes. What are you waiting for? Grab those tickets before they sell out!
