Everyone knows that High Sierra is packed with epic musical moments, but there’s plenty to be discovered away from the stages, too!




Come join in the parade fun! Wear a funky, colorful costume (some are available for loan) and come to the Parade Booth at the pavilion behind the Family Area. Wear a silly hat, carry a flag or a large puppet! Paint your face and parade in style. The Parade Booth opens every day one hour before we take off, and closes one hour after the start of the parade (please return costumes and parade gear).

ZEROdB Silent Disco

Excited to come back for its 3rd year running, we will be hosting silent disco on the lawn each night! We will have an rotating dj lineup on 3 channels and run all night! Headphone rentals are $10 each night along with a valid credit card for collateral. For the first time ever, we are also offering the opportunity for people to buy headphones for $60! Headphone purchases come with a charger cable and a stereo cable. Just come by the booth each day to recharge your headphones. The stereo cable can be plugged into your phone or computer, so you can use them as regular headphones! Investing in your own headphones this year also means you’re ready for all future silent discos at High Sierra or at other events! We look forward to late nights and kickball with you all!

From the very beginning, the art that enhances the High Sierra experience has been created by hand and installed with love by fans of the festival. We’re always on the lookout for talent, so if you are the creative type and would like the opportunity to see your work displayed on one of the High Sierra stages, please contact us. Several favorite stage sets and late night themes over the years were created by High Sierra fans who had never done large scale artwork before, but were inspired by the festival and went for it… with beautiful results!

We encourage all festival patrons to enhance their festival experience by decorating their camps and creating fun fashion ensembles!
