Visiting the Shasta Cascade Region
Visitors to the Shasta Cascades are surrounded by wooded wonderlands like Klamath National Forest and Trinity National Forest, the sparkling waters of Shasta Lake and Lake Almanor, and countless opportunities for outdoor fun. This summer, Cascade communities from Yreka to Alturas to Chico are ideal destinations, capitalizing on the warm sunshine by hosting an abundance of special events.
NorCal’s relatively mild summer weather means fair season comes early, and the 2016 Shasta District Fair promises plenty of fun for this year’s anticipated 90,000 attendees. Held June 15th through 18th at the Shasta District Fairgrounds in Anderson, south of Redding, the fair features midway rides and games, HiRise FMX Motocross showcases, and four days of live music provided by the likes of Hot for Teacher, the Van Halen Experience.
This summer is a great time to experience Chico’s charms. Slice of Chico 2016 sees the downtown area’s businesses open up with special discounts on food and retail items on July 8th and 9th. Then, on September 25th, find a taste of the town at northern California’s premier food and beverage festival. The 2016 Taste of Chico event fills the downtown area with art, live music, and food provided by local restaurants.
Mt. Shasta’s immediate surroundings make it easy for visitors to get out and stretch their legs – and this summer’s event calendar makes it even easier. Cyclists are already training for the 2016 Mount Shasta Summit Century, which puts them to the test on July 31st.
Even on Labor Day Weekend, as the rest of the nation breathes a sigh of collective relaxation, Mt. Shasta residents and visitors are competing in the 2016 Tinman Triathlon. The race is part of the Labor Day 2016 Cool Mountain Nights series, which also features the Car Show & Shine, a downtown street fair, and the Blackberry Music Festival. Check local listings for this year's dates.
