The Bear Valley Music Festival is an annual summer event in Bear Valley, California, located about 180 miles east of San Francisco at just above 7200 feet elevation in the Sierra Nevada. The festival currently begins on the second-to-last Friday in July and ends three Sundays later, drawing a total audience of roughly four thousand attendees who enjoy not only the Bear Valley Music Festival and Bear Valley, but all that the surrounding area has to offer.
Now under the direction of Alexander Mickelthwate, the festival strives to appeal to a wide demographic by presenting a variety of artists and styles of music including classical, rock, country and jazz, headliners, and opera performed by a full symphony orchestra, international soloists, legendary entertainers, and renowned opera stars. The concerts are held in a tent erected to serve as a concert hall, equipped with a stage large enough to hold a symphony orchestra.
Featuring a star-studded lineup with the return of some of the Festival’s all-time favorite artists. See the full line-up and/or buy Bear Valley Music Festival tickets here.
