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!
