About the ForestFest

Celebrating rural community, forest and watershed health with good music, and a good time in the beautiful high Sierra Nevada mountains. 

This benefit event is a revitalization of the Solar Cook-Off and Music Festival that was organized by Bill and Mel Rocket of Blackhawk Solar, from 1992-2012.

After an 8 year hiatus ( plus a one-year COVID-19 pause) Sierra Institute is bringing the classic event back to Indian Valley! The event will raise funds for forest restoration, wildfire mitigation, and community development in California's Sierra Nevada region.

Why the Sierra Institute for Community & Environment?

The Sierra Institute for Community and Environment's core mission is to support rural communities and the natural habitats that surround and support them.

The ForestFest is a revitalization of the old Solar Cook-Off and Music Festival in Indian Valley that previously thrived for 20 plus years. This intimate but vibrant festival has and will continue to celebrate the beauty, connectedness, and charm of rural life in the high Sierra. The Sierra Institute for Community and Environment is committed to bringing back this timeless tradition to highlight the heart and soul of Indian Valley, stimulate the local economy, and raise money to support Sierra Institute's mission.
