This August, the Nevada City Film Festival and Inn Town Campground have teamed up to offer visitors an affordable vacation package to explore the beautiful historic Gold Rush era town and enjoy its growing arts scene.
Nevada City, is home to the “Sundance of the Sierra” also known to locals as the Nevada City Film Festival! From August 23-30, the Nevada City Film Festival makes art into a party, bringing emerging and top independent filmmakers showcasing award-winning short and feature length films from around the world to this beautiful historic town in the Sierra Foothills. The week-long celebration of art, music, and independent filmmaking, includes film screenings, workshops, live music, after parties, and more!
Visitors can spend their days swimming in one of Nevada County’s many gorgeous lakes or at the mighty Yuba River; mountain biking or hiking along miles of scenic trails; shopping local boutiques for unique handmade items; or enjoying local craft beer and wine at one of our downtown restaurants. And in the evenings enjoy world-class films and entertainment in a truly festive setting.
Other happenings during film festival weekend include the Sierra Brewfest, a unique, unlimited microbrew tasting experience of over 100 hand-crafted beers, happening at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, and Nevada City Uncorked, a sip-and-stroll event that includes 16 different venues featuring local food purveyors and regional wineries.
