Save the Date for Hermitfest 2019!

We’ll be celebrating with music all day long again this year so plan to join us in Hermit Valley on September 7th, 2019 in Hermit Valley. Hermit Valley is about 13 miles east of Bear Valley or 18 miles west of Markleeville along the beautiful Ebbetts Pass Scenic Byway (California State Route 4).

Plan to make a weekend of it by arriving early to camp with the Hermitfest regulars or visiting some of the other places along the way. We’ll be posting the entertainment lineup and other things happening in the area that weekend as the day gets closer but mark your calendar now.

There will be food and non-alcoholic drinks available for purchase along with festival t-shirts and other branded items.

Wish to join us as a vendor of artisanal items? Just contact us at and we will try to accommodate you.
