Now in its eighth year, the Far West Fest
, rollin’ around the bay (Tomales Bay, I mean) this weekend, is a no-brainer on the fun scale. Presented by West Marin Youth Programs and KWMR community radio (West Marin’s only radio station), the festival brings patrons of all ages together. With a musical lineup sure to awaken your funk, bluegrass and rock souls, performers include: Zigaboo Modeliste and the New Aahkesstra, FogDub, John Doe, Paige Anderson & the Fearless Kin, Beso Negro, Asheba and many more. Besides the musical entertainment, there are oysters, fresh produce, grass-fed meats and baked goods; a Kidz Zone features healthy snacks, kid-friendly music, storytellers, clowns and jugglers. Since it’s voted best music festival in Marin County, it’s almost required to attend this party (that is, if you favor music over rubber duckies) on Saturday, July 27, at Love Field. 11171 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Point Reyes Station. $15—$75. 11am. 415.663.8068.
