The Big Fit will swing over to the East Bay to play the wonderful tradition, The Walnut Festival. We’ve had our eye on this one but this is first time, er, cracking the scene. We think we’re going to go nuts for this one, and we think you will, too. This is a great one for the family!
Some info about the festival:
The first Festival held in 1911 was a celebration of the harvest of grapes and was called 'The Grape Festival'. During prohibition, grapes were replaced with walnuts as the cash crop of the area and the vineyards became walnut groves. In 1936, the harvest celebration became known as The Walnut Festival. The Walnut Festival Association was officially incorporated in 1938 and except for a suspended period during World War II, has been celebrated as the popular annual community event it remains today. As Walnut Creek as grown, and suburban developments have replaced walnut groves, the Walnut Festival Association has maintained the tradition of producing fundraising events for the benefit of the community. Locations for the event have changed over the years from the center of town to Civic Park and finally, in 1976, to Heather Farm Park, where it is now held the third Thursday after the first Monday in September.
Come on out to an iconic and fun venue in the tiny Marin town of Nicasio to see The Big Fit bring The Funk!
We love playing this wonderful restaurant and lounge and we can't wait to get back there to rock the house once more! Plenty of dancing room awaits you after a delicious dinner with a full bar for yummy cocktails.
Great vibe, beautiful setting, and The Funk! Doesn't get much better than that, right? See y'all there! Get your tix now!
