Celebrate the return of summer and hit up these epic events!
July 8, 2021
“There’s nothing to do here,” said no Lake County resident ever. Sure, last summer was kind of a bummer, but we’re more than making up for it this year. Summer 2021 is shaping up to be as big as two summers in one!
Besides the abundance of stuff to do inside, outside, any side really, there’s also so many special events you won’t want to miss! Yep, events are back in a big way in Lake County, and we plan on hitting up all of them. Care to join?
Set your out of office and clear up your calendar to check out these epic events!
Kickin’ it in the Country
We put the “country” in wine country, so we’re being true to our reputation with the “Kickin in the Country” music series. Get out to Main Street Kelseyville for blues and swamp rock band Hot Roux on Thursday, July 22 and the N’Awlins-tinged The Terry Hanck Band on Thursday, August 19. Shows start at 7pm. Good vibes last forever.
Keep on Truckin’ at Library Park
So libraries are usually associated with being quiet, but not Library Park. For 25 years this has been the site for live concerts and family friendly entertainment. Don’t miss this annual summer tradition, which starts every Friday at 6:30pm through August.
Wildhurst Corn Maze
September still counts as summer, right? For a family friendly summer sendoff, or a fun for all ages kickoff to fall, don’t miss the Wildhurst Corn Maze, starting Saturday, September 25 and lasting through October.
Who doesn’t love a parade? Frankly, we don’t want to know. We just hope to see you on Saturday, September 25 for the 28th Annual Kelseyville Pear Festival & Parade. This annual event showcases the agricultural heritage of the area…and it’s just a heck of a lot of fun too.
Konocti Vista Concert Series
All summer long the Konocti Vista Casino is hosting live music on the hotel lawn for free! And before you ask, no, this isn’t a “Classical Music” concert series (not that there’s anything wrong with that); it’s the kind of music you use to get in trouble for playing too loud. Go to one, or go to them all, just be sure to go on Saturday, July 24, for the Konocti Beer and Wine Festival. Two events in one day? Yes, please!
Lake County Rodeo
We’re not horsin’ around when we say the 91st Annual Lake County Rodeo is a must-see event, and has been for nearly a century. Visit the Lake County Fairgrounds Friday, July 9 through Saturday, July 10. Gates open at 5pm and the rodeo starts at 6pm. If you’ve been, you know. If you haven’t, you need to go to this rodeo — and that’s no bull.
19th Annual Falling Leaves Quilt Show
Okay, so this is definitely not a summer event, but summer is a state of mind and we couldn’t not include it. The 19th Annual Falling Leaves Quilt Show has been around so long we look forward to it like snuggling up with a nice, warm you-know-what. You’ll find plenty of quilts to admire here, and may even find your new favorite. Visit the Lake County Fairgrounds Saturday, October 2 through Sunday, October 3, starting at 10am.
Labor Day Weekend is traditionally considered the last weekend of summer, so what better way to cap things off than a little blues? Okay, how about a lotta blues? The Labor Day Weekend Blue Wing Blues Festival at the Tallman Hotel is as cool as they come. You’ll definitely be singing the blues if you miss it.
There’s so much to do, and the only thing that’s missing is you, so bring the family and join the fun for an epic summer of ‘21!
