Mammoth Lakes Events Are On

Bluesapalooza and other favorites are back for 2021


Mammoth Lakes, Calif., June 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As California heads toward its June 15 COVID-19 reopening date, summer and fall events in Mammoth Lakes are preparing to kick back into gear. A full gamut of events is lining up to enhance experiences for visitors and locals alike.

Leading the way in terms of size and scope, and the celebration of the festival’s 25th anniversary is the Mammoth Festival of Beers & Bluesapalooza, Mammoth Lakes’ largest ticketed summer event. Organizers have confirmed that they are moving forward with the premier four-day festival, scheduled this year for Aug. 5-8, and will do so with a standard of best practices.

“To our knowledge, this is the first large scale beer festival in the state of California since the start of the pandemic and our goal is to set a standard for future beer festivals in the state and beyond,” said Mammoth Brewing Company owner and event organizer, Sean Turner. Mammoth Brewing Company has been a longtime supporter of the California Craft Brewers Association and is proud to organize this event with local and state-wide teams for the benefit of this association.

To that end, they are striving to create a fun and healthy outdoor event site in the pines in Mammoth Lakes and support the local community, the brewers’ community and of course all festival-goers. You can view the event’s planned best practices here.

Additionally, signature summer and fall events in the Village at Mammoth Lakes are moving forward and include favorites such as Village Fest, the Margarita Festival, Mammoth Rocks, Oktoberfest, and many others.

Endurance events are also a go, with well-known rides such as the Mammoth Gran Fondo scheduled to take place in September, as well as the toughest race in the most beautiful place, the June Lake Triathlon, scheduled for July.

“We are extremely excited to welcome events back to Mammoth Lakes this summer in a safe and sustainable way,” said Mammoth Lakes Tourism’s new Special Events Manager, Dakota Snider. “Our entire events community has been preparing for the last few months and we are thrilled that so many new and classic events will be returning for the second half of 2021.”
