The Humboldt Fervor Fest, held in the Creamery District on Aug. 13, 2016 from 1-5 p.m., was a resounding success in so many ways. More than one thousand people attended the fermented food and drink sampling event. They enjoyed beer, wine, cider, kombucha, distilled spirits, pickled foods, cheese, bread and other delicious items.
The four local bands, dancers, stilt walkers, giant puppets and performance performance artists enthralled the attendees throughout the four-hour event. See the Humboldt Fervor Fest website for more information on the festival. The festival was a fundraiser for Humboldt Made and the Arcata Playhouse.
Humboldt Fervor Fest organizers are delighted that the festival inaugurated reusable glasses, plates and utensils to serve the festival’s delicious food and drink. The new “community cupboard” was initiated by Humboldt Fervor Fest, Zero Waste Humboldt and the Sister City Project, which hosts the I Street Block Party. The community cupboard is a set of dishes, glasses and utensils that are available to non-profit organizations who sponsor festivals in our region. The three founding organizations hope to be adding other local non-profits such as Arcata Mainstreet who put on the Oyster Fest and Arts! Arcata and the Arcata Chamber of Commerce who organize the 4th of July Jubilee.
The Arcata Playhouse and Humboldt Made are teaming up to put on Humboldt’s first ever Fermentation Festival.
On August 13th from 1-5pm we’ll be celebrating all things fermented, cider, kombucha, beer, wine and distilled spirits oh my, sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi, bread, cheese, and so much more!!
This one-of-a-kind festival celebrates the alchemy behind many of our favorite foods and
beverages. The Creamery District streets will be packed with over forty producers, offering samples of their fermented delicacies. In addition to discovering new tastes, there are learning opportunities, demonstrations for those who are interested in fermenting at home and an arts and crafts market with local music to get your dance on.

The Bills are performing at the Arcata Playhouse Wednesday, June 29 at 8pm. They are an extraordinary quintet from the west coast of Canada, renowned for their instrumental virtuosity, lush vocal arrangements, exuberant live performances, evocative songwriting and refreshingly innovative interpretations of traditional tunes from around the globe.
The Bills have forged a musical style all their own that transcends musical boundaries and defies simple categorization. Drawing musical inspiration from a broad range of North American traditions, a melange of European stylings, rhythms of Latin America, and melodies of the wandering Romany peoples, With three main writers in the band, The Bills have developed a glorious and growing repertoire of songs that speak of their own part of the world.
The Bills have racked up a string of Canadian music awards and a devoted fan following that extends across North America and Europe. They will be performing tunes from their freshly released CD Trail of Tales.
