If you are in town during Labor Day Weekend (first weekend in September), come to the Tri-County Fair.
You'll see/taste/touch blue ribbon salsa, beer, tomatoes, art, cats and dogs, etc.
In addition, you can go to a real live rodeo or destruction derby. (Destruction Derby tickets sell out fast!)
If you get hungry or thirsty, you can stuff yourself silly on various deep fat fried starches, mounds of sugar in different guises, and BEER!
If you come to the area in Mid September and love live music, come to the Millpond Festival. It's three days of music at the base of the Sierras and features great folk, blues, rock, zydeco, rockabilly, etc. - all those great genres you can bop to!
In past years, we've had The Blind Boys of Alabama, David Lindley, Riders of the Purple Sage, Geno Delafonse, Fairport Convention, Laura Love, Jo Burley and Her Burley Roughnecks, etc.
It's put together by the Inyo County Council for the Arts.
On-site camping available.
