Mumbo Gumbo playing at Mono Lake County Park on Sunday

Make your way to Mono Lake County Park this Sunday, June 21 at noon to picnic on the lawn and enjoy a free concert with the band Mumbo Gumbo! It’s a great way to celebrate the summer solstice and Father’s Day all in one.


You can bring your own lunch, but a delicious lunch will be for sale for $10 per meal at the park: sirloin burgers, turkey burgers, and garden burgers with cheese and all the toppings, plus salad, dessert, and a drink. All proceeds from lunch benefit Lee Vining High School.

This year we’re very excited to have Mumbo Gumbo playing at the park. Mumbo Gumbo blends many genres, from rock to soul, afropop to lush balladry, zydeco to country, into a celebratory, danceable noise. Over nearly 20 years, on their eight albums and during countless gigs around their native Northern California, Mumbo Gumbo has created something that is less a specific style than a particular feeling: the sound of sheer joy!

We hope you’ll join us and enjoy the live music and great food with new and old friends this Sunday!

To get to County Park from Lee Vining, head north on Highway 395 approximately 5 miles and turn right on Cemetery Road. Go down the hill and look for parking directions. Carpooling from Lee Vining is highly recommended.
