Millpond Music Festival is a small, intimate festival in a relaxed setting in the eastern shadow of the Sierra Nevada. It is a family friendly event with something to offer for everyone! In addition to main stage performances, artists appear in our workshop tent allowing festival-goers a chance to interact with the musicians in a more informal setting. ICA also provides activities for kids including arts and crafts, facepainting, and more. We also offer a diverse selection of food vendors and an Arts and Crafts show of local and regional artists.  The Millpond County park also has a large pond for swimming and a playground for kids!

In addition to the scheduled festival events, jamming is encouraged throughout the weekend. Be sure to bring your instrument!
