It might be a 17 hour drive from Denver but, for one weekend in August at least, the tiny hamlet of Belden, California will be the funkiest place in the west. Tucked into the lush and scenic Feather River Canyon, Belden is a true NorCal retreat. After a night of getting funked up, festival goers can recharge with hiking, river floats and fishing, then put on those boogie pants and get ready to do it all again.
