I'm so excited to participate in this event! September 29, 2018! Let me tell you where I'll be!
First, a little about the event.
The art and agriculture communities of Plumas and Sierra Counties are inviting the public to spend an awesome autumn day, enjoying the history, culture and bounty of one of its treasures: Sierra Valley.
Visitors should plan on beginning the day at one of three "Trailhead" information centers positioned at convenient entry points into Sierra Valley: The Sierra Valley Grange Hall in Vinton, Sierra Valley Farms in Beckwourth and the historic Sierraville School in Sierraville. Trailheads, which will open at 9:30 a.m., will host local artists and will provide an opportunity for visitors to plan the rest of their route with a knowledgeable volunteer, to pick up a paper map and purchase a Passport or souvenir.
· Sierraville School - 305 Lincoln Street, Sierraville, CA
· Sierra Valley Farms - 1329 County Road A-23, Beckwourth, CA
· Sierra Valley Grange Hall - 92202 Highway 70, Vinton, CA
And you can find me at Lil Meg's Pumpkin Patch in Beckworth! The pumpkin patch is located at 4118 Segundo Road in Beckwourth.
If you are looking for a fun and an authentic pumpkin patch experience on a farm, come over to Lil’ Megs Pumpkin Patch in Beckwourth CA. Featuring a corn maze, amazing fresh home baked goods, games and pumpkins of all sizes, it’s the perfect place to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Plus on September 29th, there will be three extraordinary artists!
Laurel Paschal, Lolly's Crafts
Chilcoot, CA-based Laural Paschal of Lolly's Crafts creates decorative pieces by hand painting and wood burning gourds with images of animals, Santas, birds & wildlife.
Ingrid Burke, Eliliptical Sunrise
Elliptical Sunrise was born from the beautiful view of roof beams radiating from the central skylight in the ellipse-shaped house my partner built. Selling my crafts is a “new morning” for me: the realization of a dream I’ve had ever since I was little! Elliptical Sunrise also helps fill the handmade niche for Plumas County, spreading the word about this beautiful and little-known corner of California.
Eva Gorman, Josefina Fine Knits
I knit stuff! Well, you all know I create a little more than just "stuff" but it was fun to give a quick short answer!
Bring some snacks, have a full tank of gas, and plan to spend the entire day visiting the historical ranches and farms of the Sierra Valley, meet the incredible artists of Plumas and Sierra Counties, and enjoy the wide open spaces.
