4th of July Weekend | Northstar Village | 12th Annual

Beerfest & Bluegrass Festival

For the 12th consecutive year, The Village at Northstar comes alive with al fresco roots jams and fresh brews.



Northstar Mountain Beer Run 3k/5k

Before it’s time for bluegrass and beers, start your weekend off on the right foot (or left) by taking a run through Northstar’s summer mountain trail system. Participants 21 and older will receive the refreshing reward of a free beer (you know, to rehydrate). Not 21? Take the run anyways and try some Rootbeer. 


Pedal to the Pour

Pedal to the Pour Earn your beers by hitting Northstar’s notorious Mountain Bike Park before heading into the village for Beerfest & Bluegrass Festival. By doing so, you will receive a $30 Beerfest & Bluegrass Festival ticket – and for those who haven’t ridden before, check out Specialized Academy to get the wheels in motion with a lesson.

Summertime Soda Sampling 

Summertime Soda Sampling just because it’s Beerfest doesn’t mean we don’t have something for the youngsters. Head to the Northstar Kids Zone to pick out your favorite fizz, where those under 21 can enjoy Craft Sodas, visit a few quirky vendors and explore lots of other family-friendly activities all day long.

Beerfest & Bluegrass

Beerfest & Bluegrass The day is finally here. So grab a beer from over 40 regional and local craft breweries and enjoy the show as award-winning artists hit the stage (or stages rather since there are two of them).

Northstar Village Activities

Northstar Village Activities Before (or while) rocking out to live music, get your roll on at Northstar’s outdoor roller rink, which will be open all day long. Or practice your putt-putt skills with our Sierra-themed mini golf course that weaves through town, featuring elements of local flora, wildlife, and facts about the area’s mining background and history. Not done yet? Keep the fun going with cornhole, Gem Panning, the Bungee Trampoline, Spider Climb or Rock Wall; or kick back and relax in Adirondack chairs or at the Overlook Bar.


Mountaintop Mantra, a mountaintop Hike & Yoga

Recover with a refreshing hike before the mountain opens to the public and breathe in the crisp mountain air while soaking in one amazing view after another. Once at the top, awaken your mind, body and spirit with yoga at the summit.
