Every Saturday from June 11 to August 20 the Green Valley Lake Community Garden will host the 2016  Summer Faire Series.    In addition to our traditional evening concerts by the lake (3:00 to 5:00), we have added many more fun activities all day.  Starting at 10:00 in the morning, browse through the booths of craft vendors, quilt show displays, mosaic demos, pottery demos, or photography exhibits.  Then from noon to 3:00 there will be speakers from various organizations giving educational talks on everything from fire safety to earthquake preparedness,  drones, OHVs, snake safety and much more.  In-between there may be square dancing, a chili cook-off, a Pie Festival or a Strawberry Shortcake Day, a children’s art show and a cutest pet contest.  Plus, the whole time our gardeners will stand by to give you a tour of the garden and answer any questions about how to grow organic veggies at this high altitude.  All of the concerts and fun activities are free, but if you would like to give a donation, that would be greatly appreciated.  Bring a lawn chair.  Below is the schedule for all the bands and other fun events.

    Are there any Irish music sessions in Green Valley Lake or anywhere between Crestline and GVL going on this summer?

      Hi – We are planning Sunday Jams (sessions) at the Garden in GVL – our first one was last Sunday. Email me at and I can give you more info. Also, don’t miss “Wake the Bard” at the Garden on July 30th!

    Is the concert the same location where the music festival was held? Should we bring lawn chairs?

    • Sandi Huckaby says:

      The July Concerts are held downtown, next to the Community Garden.
      There are some plastic chairs there, but your own would be more comfortable.

    Do you ever have food vendors at your concert series?

    • Sandi Huckaby says:

      The venue is right next to our 2 restaurants, so we encourage people to eat there or get some take-out.

    Please send me all events if possible, thanks

      Hi Martha- The Summer Concert Series was just during July this year. Next summer we will do more so keep your eye on the “Upcoming Events” page. “Wake the Bard” is playing at the Lake Inn on 8/31.
