Theater & Live Music
Enjoy mountain culture
Mono County has an impressive amount of theater and live music events for a county of its size! The best way to find them all is to search the events calendar, but for a quick overview:
June Lake is home to the June Lake Loop Performing Arts Association (JLLOOPPAA), which puts on two main events each year -- the June Lake Theater Festival in July and the famous June Lake Jam Fest in September.
June Lake’s T-Bar Social Club is the community’s newest gathering place featuring live music and other events, like speakers and comedians, throughout the year.
Two theater companies call Mammoth Lakes home -- Sierra Classic Theatre and Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre. Both offer events throughout the year.
All summer long, weekend festivals are held in The Village at Mammoth featuring a variety of types of live music - Summer Jam, Mammoth Reggae Fest, Mammoth Rocks, Mammoth Margarita Fest, and more.
Mammoth Lakes also has two film festivals -- the Mammoth Film Festival in February and the Mammoth Lakes Film Festival in May -- and is home to Bluesapalooza, a hugely-popular blues music and beer festival put on every August by Mammoth Brewing Company.
And keep an eye on the events calendar for a few other notable film events in Mono and Inyo County: Mono Lake Committee's Wild and Scenic Film Festival, Mountainfilm on Tour, and the Backcountry Film Festival.
