Keep it Green – Bring Your Own

Purchase an insulated Klean Kanteen cup and receive a discount on coffee, beer, wine, and bubbly! Bring your own mug for a discount on coffee at concessions.

Bring utensils, plate, and napkin. We have compostables if you forget, but bringing your own reusable items is much better. Or, check out our Wild & Scenic bamboo utensil sets for purchase at Fest Headquarters.

Bring a water bottle! No bottled water is sold at the Fest. Please bring a reusable water bottle with you! Water fountains are located at many venues, so refills are easy.

Parking Challenges? Take the Shuttle

The Wild & Scenic FREE shuttle runs Friday – Sunday, and it is the easiest way to travel between Nevada City & Grass Valley. The shuttle stops on Broad St. at Union St. and Hwy 20-49 Bridge in Nevada City and at Gold Miners Inn in Grass Valley, at 15 minute intervals.

Driving electric? There’s a charging station behind Miners Foundry and at Briar Patch Co-op.
