The Summer Festival is typically held the second weekend of August.

Admission is free. Free parking is also available at nearby Ygnacio Valley High School – along with free shuttle service to and from the school.

The Summer Festival is a very popular event and significant crowds are always expected. So, this makes parking a bit of a challenge. While there is very limited disabled parking available, we do provide a drop-off/pickup area in front of the building. We have also arranged for free parking at Ygnacio Valley High School a few blocks away. Free shuttle service runs frequently between the High School and JA Club throughout the day and evening hours.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
