The Arnold Independence Day Parade and Sierra Nevada Arts & Crafts Festival starts with a classic, small-town parade with vintage cars, local businesses, emergency services, schools and civic organizations represented. It starts on Saturday, July 2, 2022 at 10:00 am from the Arnold Byway to the Cedar Center Shopping Plaza. If you’re in the area when it’s happening, be sure to check out this rural favorite. And get there early to find your perfect spot.
The festivities continue with the 50th Annual Sierra Nevada Arts & Crafts Festival in the center of downtown Arnold, a mountain resort town on the road to Bear Valley Ski Resort on Highway 4, among the pines and redwoods, on the grounds of Bristol’s Ranch House Café. The 4th of July weekend festival will feature high-quality, hand-crafted artisans, specialty food and antiques that will make this a memorable event for many years to come! Enjoy the crisp mountain air as you walk among the booths and try the specialty food while enjoying the wonderful mountain environment.
