Summer Delights in Mammoth Lakes: Festivals, Adventures, and Real Estate Updates


Embracing the Enchanting Summertime in Mammoth Lakes

I know I keep saying this, but summer really is my favorite time of year in Mammoth Lakes and the Eastern Sierra. This summer feels more special. I think that is because it feels like we fought for it. This past winter, the biggest on record, felt like it would never end… and it still hasn’t, at least on Mammoth Mountain. But there is always a bright side, and right now, the bright side is all the green lushness, all the wildflowers, the lakes that are overflowing with fish and water, and our blue skies. For me, this is as close to heaven as you can get on Earth.

Exploring the Vibrant Summer Scene: Events and Activities

In addition to the glorious conditions, there are so many things to do here. Between the organized events and the things you can dream up, the days just aren’t long enough. Not that you need any help, but here are some suggestions…

Highlighting Not-to-Miss Events: Blues, Margaritas, and Wine!

Here is my blog post from last week about the Lakes Basin. Ride up on an E-Bike from town or grab the free shuttle.

Bluesapalooza – Mammoth Festival of Beers and Blues. Aug 3rd-6th. 80+ craft breweries and four days of some insane Blues. Outside, among the pines. Mammoth’s biggest event of the year. It is legendary with breweries and Blues musicians coming from all over the country. Don’t miss it… it does sell out.

Mammoth Margarita Festival – Aug 11-12. 5:00-10:00 PM. In The Village. 11th annual! Music. Mezcal and Tequila tastings.

Mammoth Wine Weekend – Aug 18-19. 2:00-11:00 PM. Tastings, dinners, and events throughout the weekend. Check out the wineries that will be here.

Indulging in Cultural Delights: Mammoth Shakespeare Festival

It isn’t all about libations! We also have some tragedy…

Mammoth Shakespeare Festival – Aug 17th-Sept 3rd. 7:00-9:30 PM. Mammoth’s take on HAMLET. Amongst the pines. Bring a chair, a blanket, and a picnic.

A Slice of Heaven: Photos from Mammoth Lakes

Below are some photos. Yesterday we went to Convict Lake Resort for dinner and arrived early, so we went and walked some of the lake. Then Lake Mary, flowers, and past Bluesapaloozas. Hoping to entice you to come and share our slice of heaven. Have a wonderful weekend.
