Dunsmuir Railroad Days - Since 1940 Dunsmuir has been celebrating its railroad heritage with Railroad Days, an annual event in June that features vintage and model trains, a parade, live entertainment and kids’ activities.

Music - Shasta Cascade Trinity

Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival - Featuring 14 public concerts in venues in and around Trinity County, this festival will showcase 22 professional musicians from around the world performing classical masterpieces from such composers as Mozart, Haydn, Brahms, Dvorak, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Barber, and many more. All concerts are free and open to the public.

Tribute to the Trees - The Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens are the location for many concerts and special events. Every year the meadow is the venue for the Tribute to the Trees concert. In September of 1990 at a Community Revitalization meeting, Bill Whitson, director and conductor of the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra and a part-time resident of Dunsmuir, suggested bringing the Orchestra to the City Park for a benefit concert as a way to provide funds for the new Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens project. The first "Tribute to the Trees Concert" was held the next June. The Gardens became a reality after this premiere concert. It was not expected to be an annual event but the young musicians have traveled to Dunsmuir each year since that initial concert in 1991.

Etna Bluegrass Festival - The Scott Valley Bluegrass Festival is like a step back in time to Mayberry RFD. The town of Etna has that kind of charm and hospitality. Make your plans now to attend! You won’t want to miss a minute of the fun or the once in a lifetime opportunity to pick with some of the best musicians, and most friendly folks you will ever meet!

Return of the Salmon - The annual Return of the Salmon Festival has been celebrated at the hatchery since 1991 in an effort to increase outreach and visitor use. During this one day festival the third Saturday in October over 10,000 visitors are attracted to the hatchery. Many other organizations (Federal, State and private exhibitors) participate in this event with a wide array of information pertinent to natural resource issues. Visitors during the festival are treated to viewing large numbers of fall Chinook salmon returning to Battle Creek and the hatchery, and may observe all aspects of day-to-day hatchery operations such as spawning, egg incubation, and juvenile rearing.

McCloud Mushroom Festival - Held every Memorial Day weekend, the mushroom festival celebrates the wild mushroom hunting that occurs every spring in and around McCloud. Event features live music, mushroom vendors, wine tasting, special mushroom delicacies, cooking demonstrations, seminars and educational booths on mushroom harvesting.

Crawdad Festival - The Crawdad Festival originated in the small town of Isleton back in 1986 and was the chief source of funds to run the local Chamber of Commerce by recognizing the fun little guys known locally as “crawdads” and elsewhere throughout the United States by an assortment of names including crawfish, “mud bugs”, crayfish, etc. The festival eventually outgrew the City of Isleton and was purchased by the R Wild Horse Ranch and made a part of the volunteer fire and rescue auxiliary. Both the City of Red Bluff and the Red Bluff-Tehama County Chamber of Commerce support this community event. Attendees came from all over the State of California, from Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, Iowa, Washington and even Louisiana and Texas.

Trinity Lake Wine and Jazz Fest - The Trinity Lake communities invite you to an afternoon of wine tasting, art, appetizer cookoff tasting and judging, food, and Jazz by Trinity Lake on Saturday July 20 in Trinity Center, California.
