Beaverstock 2.0 has come and gone and we can’t thank you all enough for making it one of the most amazing weekends we have ever had! We poured our hearts and souls into this year’s event and to see the community come out and embrace the festival to such a high degree was the most amazing feeling. We are truly humbled and touched by the feedback we have been getting and we couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this wonderful community.

Those of you who attended the festival this year were able to experience the growth from last year’s event, which is something we worked very hard on. With the addition of the “Stompin’ Grounds” stage, “Artist Grove,” Yoga and craft workshops it was truly an all ages event with no shortage of entertainment. Watching kids run around with painted faces and huge smiles while groups of festivalgoers do Acrobatic Yoga, Hula Hoop, and lounge with friends was something special. This year’s event was about so much more than music; it was about a community coming together for a great cause while living life to the fullest.

Beaverstock 2014 was a benefit for the Templeton Education Foundation (TEF) and I am proud to say we were able to raise $10,000 that will go directly into the Templeton School District. Both days TEF Volunteers managed the bar at Beaverstock and did such a fantastic job. Their partnership was amazing and we couldn’t have done it without them.

Both Saturday and Sunday we were blessed with amazing musical performances that will be remembered for years to come. Allen Stone and Los Lobos put on spectacular performances that fit the mold of Beaverstock perfectly. By that, I mean, they were personable, laid back and made honest and very effective efforts to connect with the community who came out to see them play.

I could go on and on but most importantly I want to thank everyone who was involved in Beaverstock this year for making it truly special. From our staff, volunteers and vendors to the community who came out in droves to celebrate; THANK YOU!

With Beaverstock right around the corner it seems like a good time to dive a little deeper into the details of this year’s event. As you know, last year was a celebration of 30 years in business and a lot of the focus was on celebrating that milestone! This year we decided to shift the focus towards celebrating music and community, two things that have played a major role in the identity of Castoro Cellars. This year’s festival will benefit the Templeton Education Foundation, which is a non-profit that gives back to the Templeton School district that both Max and I attended from 1st grade through high school graduation! Pretty cool stuff if you ask me : )

With the focus on community we have made it a point to highlight local food vendors, craft breweries and artists. (For more info on the vendors click HERE.) This year we will feature beers by Toro Creek, Molly Pitcher, Firestone and Barrelhouse Brewing co along with a wide assortment of Dam Fine Wines! A new addition this year is the “Artist Grove” featuring art from young up and coming artists in our community along with yoga and workshops. We have hand picked a small number of artists to display their medium while inspiring creativity and dialogue. Our goal is for you to leave Beaverstock feeling inspired, connected and excited about the endless possibilities a strong community presents. Art/Yoga Schedule HERE.

With an event of this scale and so many things going on we get lots of questions about the specifics so I wanted to outline below some of the key points people ask us. I find that most questions can be answered here:

• This is an all ages event but you must be 21+ to purchase alcoholic beverages.
• Children 10 and under are free with a paid adult ticket. All others must have a ticket to enter the event.
• Bring a low back lawn chair or blanket to enjoy the concerts! No seating provided. Higher back chairs will be allowed at the back area of seating ONLY.
• Food and wine will be available for purchase. No outside food or beverages allowed. Purses and backpacks will be subject to search.
• Admission ticket (one day or two day) includes complimentary parking and a full day of live music!
• No Pets
• No Ins and Outs
• There is onsite parking at no additional cost
• No refunds, all ticket sales are final!

One of the most important things to note from above is children 10 and under are FREE! I can not tell you how many times people have asked if this event is kid friendly and it absolutely is in more ways than one! We love kids and know how important they are in shaping our wonderful community. At Beaverstock you will find a kids area with activities, live music, face painting and more! If you’ve got little ones, bring them along you won’t regret it!
