Join us Wednesday, June 13th, to celebrate the 9th annual American River TrailFest!
- Generous dinner
- Two drink tickets (wine & cold beer)
- Live music and dancing
- Kids’ activities
- Silent & live auctions
Local wineries will be on hand, and we’ll have beer from some of northern California’s premier breweries: Black Diamond, Lagunitas and Sierra Nevada!
Our musical guests are two local acts: headlining will be The Island of Black and White, an eclectic band featuring a mix of reggae, rock and blues. Coloma’s very own Matt Semonsen will be performing with his bandmates, The Empty Wallets, as the opening act.
As in the past, local businesses have donated dozens of items for the silent and live auction. Donations include raft and kayak trips, outdoor equipment, artwork, jewelry, dinners, hiking and gourmet lunches.
Celebrate the Trail
A fundraiser for the American River Conservancy, this year’s TrailFest proceeds will go towards the completion of a new multi-use trail network at the Salmon Falls Ranch. This 700-acre parcel is located just northwest of the Salmon Falls bridge and will be a great addition to the South Fork and Darrington Trails which are already in the area. Improvements will include an equestrian staging area, trailhead/parking area, kiosks and several miles of new multi-use trails.
Another project whose funding will come from TrailFest Donations is the creation of a connector trail between Henningsen Lotus Park and Monroe Ridge Trail in partnership with Marshall Gold Discovery State Park and El Dorado County. Additional funds will be used to maintain existing trails that are part of the SFAR trail system.
When, Where and How
TrailFest will take place on Sunday, June 8, 2012, at EarthTrek Expeditions campground in River Park Village, located on Hwy 49 in Lotus at the bridge over the South Fork of the American River.
Many thanks to the sponsors, those who donate to the auctions, the local Community for hosting this event, and the many volunteers who make TrailFest happen. If you would like to donate or participate, please contact the American River Conservancy at (530) 621-1224.
