2010 Jade Festival Countdown!

The 19th Annual Jade Festival will be in full swing one week from today.

It starts at noon on Friday October 8th and will go until 6 pm that night. Saturday it is held from 10-6 pm, and Sunday is from 10-5 pm. Great music line-up, wonderful food … and, and … THE JADE!!

Plaskett Creek Campground starts filling up by Wednesday, and is usually full by Thursday, but there are also Kirk Creek and Limekiln Campgrounds, as well as lodging at Lucia Lodge, Tree Bones Resort, and Gorda, here on the South Coast.

San Simeon and Cambria are easy drives as is “downtown” Big Sur. So join us for some old-fashioned South Coast hospitality. Many claim they’ve been transported back to the 60’s, if they are old enough to remember them, and others claim it is the way Big Sur really has always been.

Please remember, NO CAMPFIRES outside the developed campgrounds mentioned above. Anywhere else is a no-no, and considering the current extreme fire danger, you can bet that $5,000 fine one of us WILL report any and all campfires!

Speaking of fires, bring the kids to meet Smokey the Bear. He usually puts in an appearance on Saturday. Also there will be lectures and demonstrations about the South Coast gem, as well as good family fun. Remember, this is a family event held on school grounds and drugs or alcohol are not allowed.

The Countdown begins! Oh, my. I have so much to do this next week!! Stop by and say “hi” in the main SCCLT booth right at the entrance by the band stand.

  1. Kate, driving up for the day, where would one park for the festival? Shuttles? any handicapped (not a good walker) parking?
