Our Mission is to benefit local charities and non-profit organizations in Kern County by providing a unique music River Festival to the community.

By providing an exclusive event on the Kern River, allowing guests to enjoy live entertainment, local food, beer and wine and connect with one another, we will ultimately advance the charitable efforts taking place in the community.
