Dead on the Creek Festival on August 16-18 embodies the themes of the Grateful Dead… more precisely, the endeavors of Jerry Garcia. This intimate music and camping event is at Black Oak Ranch in Laytonville, CA (Mendocino County) in Northern California. Music and history intertwine at the legendary Black Oak Ranch, affectionately known as the Hog Farm. It is the stomping grounds of the iconic Wavy Gravy. In the early ‘90s, this site echoed with the strums of Jerry Garcia and later celebrated the famed Pignic. It has also been the proud host of the renowned Kate Wolf Festival for over two decades. Dead on the Creek had a 17-year run and then went on a five-year hiatus. This year marks its return. The festival makes its grand debut at the Ranch, continuing its legacy as an intimate musical gathering. Limited to just 500 lucky ticket holders, the event promises an up-close-and-personal experience with every performance. Imagine being so close to the stage that you can feel the passion of the musicians, while enjoying minimal waits for amenities. Our location also offers natural and constructed shade from the summer sun. Included in the price are family-style meals, fostering a sense of community and togetherness. The ingredients are sourced and fused creatively from our local agrarian community. The line-up includes Crying Uncle, Caltucky, Boot Juice, Never Come Down, Jerry's Middle Finger, Elliott Peck & Friends, Broken Compass Bluegrass, Stu Allen and more. The music is a heartfelt tribute to the legendary Jerry Garcia. Relive the magic through performances inspired by his collaborations, including the David Grisman Sessions, Old & in the Way, The Jerry Garcia Band, and of course, the timeless tunes of the Grateful Dead. Don't miss this opportunity to be part of a unique musical experience. Secure your spot at Dead on the Creek, where music, history, and community come alive under the canopy of the Black Oak Ranch.
