Thanks in advance to all the festival supporters and especially for the generous financial support from title sponsors Gila House Hotel / Gallery 400 and Prudential Silver City Properties.
This was a well-attended word-of-mouth conscious community event last year, and we are expecting a sell-out for 2006. Get to the festival early to get a good camping spot on-site. Overflow camping is available near the venue. Bring your own alcohol and plenty of water for this three-day wilderness music festival. Food and merchandise vendors will be present to serve festival goers on-site.
Come early Friday and stay late Sunday. Enjoy the Fall in the Gila. Make new friends.
