There will also be parades! Come out to join in the fun. The artists collective Third Planet Ceremonial Celebrations is based in Willits, California, and they create images and scenes in a beautiful way that fosters, celebrates, and honors all the life on planet Earth. Wear a colorful, funky costume (there are a few available on loan) and show up at the Third Planet Ceremonial Celebrations booth. Come with a flag, a goofy hat, or maybe even a big puppet! Dab on some face paint and join the procession. The booth will open an hour before the parade begins, and will close an hour after the parade starts.
High Sierra offers several movement classes. There are classes for every level and every body. Get ready for another beautiful day at the festival by showing your body and mind some love! The classes are all one hour long, and they are held on the grass between the entrance of the Grandstand Meadow and the Food Court. They are held from Friday to Sunday.
From the start, High Sierra has been enhanced by artworks made by hand and exhibited lovingly by festival fans. High Sierra is always recruiting new artistic talent, so creative types should contact the festival if they would like to see their work on display. A number of favorite nighttime themes and stage sets have been made by fans of High Sierra over time – fans who'd never completed large-scale works in their lives, but who were inspired and decided to go for it amounting with gorgeous results. High Sierra encourages all festival-goers to enrich their experience by creating funky outfits and decorating their camp.
Grizzly Radio, High Sierra's festival radio station, can be heard on several frequencies. You can tune in and hear amazing archival recordings, festival info, and live performances all day and all night! Remember to bring an FM radio, and why not try singing for breakfast? If you showcase your pipes on the Morning Sushi show, you'll get your free breakfast. Musicians, comedians, and others are welcome.
Every year, the festival hosts a food drive. All donations go to the Quincy Community Assistance Network. In past years, the food drive has raised more than 1,000 meals! If you want to participate, the first 200 festival-goers who give 20 non-perishables will get a free poster. The items that are most needed include baby food, beans, peanut butter, low sugar/whole grain cereal, oatmeal, tuna, canned vegetables and fruits, rice, tomato sauce, pasta, and canned stews and soups.
