Visiting California's Shasta Cascade Region

The Shasta Cascade region of northern California is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, and Mt. Shasta, Shasta Lake, and Lassen Volcanic National Park are well-known destinations. But this spring and summer, communities from Yreka to Chico to Anderson to Susanville invite visitors to get in touch with the personality of the region through a multitude of special events, festivals, and activities.

Film buffs and fans of adventure sports flock to the Cascade Theatre in Redding for the 2015 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour on April 11th. The festival showcases 11 films, exhilarating audiences as they journey to exotic locations to paddle the world’s wildest waters and scale its highest peaks without leaving their seat.

The film festival is part of 2015 Banff Street Fair, which takes over the Market Street Promenade in Redding on April 11th to celebrate local outdoor sports and healthy living. The fun goes from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., promising a little something for everyone – from live music, equipment demonstrations, food trucks, and geocaching to a beer garden, zip lines, and more.

It’s rodeo season in the Cascades, and Redding and Red Bluff are preparing for big crowds. April 17th through 19th, the 94th Annual Red Bluff Round-Up brings some of the PRCA’s best riders out for one of the West’s biggest rodeos. Then, May 13th through 16th, the 2015 Redding Rodeo is fun for the whole family, with three days of bucking broncos, barrel races, and more special events, including the 2015 Western Heritage Days.

Mount Shasta visitors and residents get out and stretch their legs for a good cause on May 2nd, when Run 4 Schools 2015 sees runners gathering at Weed High School, in the neighboring community of Weed, for half-marathon, 5K, and 10K races. There will also be a 5K walk with strollers allowed – perfect for those traveling with little ones.

The spring semester is in session at California State University, Chico and the school provides countless cultural and athletic events to students and the Chico community. Theater buffs won’t want to miss the 2015 Spring Musical: The Will Rogers Follies - A Life in Revue at the Laxson Auditorium, April 29th through May 2nd.

The Chico State Wildcats’ baseball season is also in full swing. Check the schedule and see the two-time national champions go to bat at Nettleton Stadium through the end of May.
