CasparFest: volunteers needed!

We need you!

CasparFest, Caspar Community’s annual celebration and fundraiser, is not only a great party: it’s an opportunity to have fun working with old and new friends to make the festival a success. Proceeds from CasparFest support programs such as Emergency Preparedness and Gorse Eradication and keep the Community Center functioning and available at reasonable rates for classes and events. Your participation is a key part of that success.

To volunteer for a three-hour shift, please call 707.964.4997 or email Thank you!!


CasparFest at Caspar Community Center on Sunday, July 21, from noon to 8 pm. Music, dancing, marketplace, food, & drinks. Benefits Caspar Community.

Sunday, July 21, 12 - 8 pm

CasparFest 2024 will take place Sunday, July 21st, outdoors at the Caspar Community Center, starting at noon. The music begins with MendoTaiko, followed by Whiskey Wristwatch, a seven piece polyjammerous band hailing from the Anderson Valley; the Old Growth Jazz Club, from greater Comptche, will swing the dance floor; local favorites Gwyneth Moreland (of Foxglove) & Angie Heimann (of The Blushin' Roulettes) will sing homegrown Americana as Ghost Pony; & wrapping up the day… the sizzling sounds of Tropiqueño, a ten piece salsa band from Arcata.

Between bands there will be youth performances by Caspar Ballet & Grupo Folklorico y Teatro de Jovenes. The marketplace will include over 30 vendor & non-profit booths. Flockworks will offer kids activities. Our annual Cupcake Walk (for all ages), with live music by the String Sisters (Frannie Leopold & Judy Stanley), will take place indoors at 5:30 pm. Great local organic food will be offered by Dalen & the Caspar kitchen crew, with beer, wine, & margaritas available at the bar.

Admission is free with donations encouraged. Please leave your animal friends at home.

For this event to run smoothly & be fun for all, we are going to need scads of volunteers. Please call 707.964.4997 or email if you would like to help.
