Yes, at 17 hours in the car, it’s a haul from Colorado to Quincy, California but, if High Sierra is the destination, there is no doubt that the trip is worth it. In addition to nearly round-the-clock music from some of the best in the funk, jam, and bluegrass worlds, this 27-year-old festival offers parades, midnight fire performances, yoga and pilates classes, and even a dedicated family village complete with on-site nanny services. With consistently great line-ups, and an impressive array of extras, High Sierra has cemented it’s place as one of the country’s best mid-sized festivals.
