Camping is available on Friday and Saturday nights in the Group Area of the Davis Creek Campground for a donation!!

Please remember it's First Come, First Served!


Large rigs may not fit in the group site. (You might consider getting a reservation in the regular camping area)

There's always room for tents!

We're asking that anyone who is camping park your rig and then park in the lower parking lot.

Space is at a real premium! (That's fancy talk fer "There ain't much!)


Any of those questions you have which are tickling the back of yore neck,

call Zona at (775) 771-6347 or



Volunteers for the Security Posse

We are looking for several more volunteers to assist in our Festival security.  The work is more in the way of assisting festival goers in finding their way and doing the right things than in herding cats (we hope).  You get to come to the event for free and you get a free 2017 Bowers Festival t-shirt and lunch from one of our food vendors.

If you are interested please contact Steve Gallagher at (760) 709-0181 or
