As summer seems to draw to a close, that doesn’t mean the fun has to end. Head to eastern Arizona to Pinetop-Lakeside, and on August 3 & 4, enjoy the music and atmosphere (and mid-80-degree weather!) at the High Mountain Music Festival.

On Friday, kick back, relax and participate in a Kickoff Party (sponsored by the White Mountain Radio) at the Pinetop-Lakeside Chamber from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The following day, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., enjoy the food, fun and fantastic music you’ve been craving to hear from your favorite local bands — including the Sugar Thieves, Big Daddy D and the Dynamite’s, Arrowheart, Darkness Dear Boy and more. Arts and crafts vendors will also be in attendance, and you’ll even have the chance to participate in a Macaroni and Cheese Bake-Off on Saturday.

The music festival will take place on the soccer grounds at the Mountain Meadow Recreation Complex, so feel free to bring your own chairs and/or blankets, but leave the coolers and outside food/drink at home. Advanced ticket sales are $7 with children (under 12) free, and RV spaces are available at the event as well.

Whether you’re looking for a fun weekend getaway or need to briefly escape the heat, experience the music of popular Arizona artists in the company of family and friends at this summer event that you definitely don’t want to miss. Forget the beach; a cool getaway is just a drive away at Pinetop-Lakeside.
