We pride ourselves on the fact that traveling the Art + Ag Trail is free. That said, there are some optional items you may want to enjoy. Your donation of $20 toward the event will earn you an event passport - a fundraiser for the event, a great keepsake item, and a fun activity. Purchase of drawing tickets, souvenirs and dinner helps keep this event going and supports some of our local organizations and their noble efforts (including scholarships for local students). The Roberti Ranch bus tours only are now full for 2019.
Visitors are encouraged to secure a Sierra Valley Art + Ag Trail Passport with your donation of $20. The passport features iconic images from Sierra Valley and spaces to collect stamps along the Trail from artists, farms, ranches, etc. A fundraiser for the event, the Passport is a keepsake item and a fun activity, and it comes with two tickets for our prize drawing.
Passports will also be available at Trailheads on the day of the event, while they last - cash or check only.
Throw your name in the hat for one of our great prizes – most of which are artwork donated by participating artists – with the purchase of $5 prize drawing tickets. Tickets will be available in advance through our online reservation system, and event-day (cash or check only) at Trailheads. The drawing will be held at the Sierra Valley Grange Hall in Vinton at 4:30 p.m., just before dinner. You need not be present to win.
The Plumas-Sierra Cattlemen’s Association and Plumas-Sierra Cattlewomen will be serving a delicious meal to end the day. Trail-weary pioneers are encouraged to stop by the Sierra Valley Grange Hall in Vinton from 4 – 6 p.m. for the prize drawing, as well as no-host refreshments and dinner. This will be a fun opportunity to catch up with friends, compare passport stamps, swap stories and refuel for the drive home. The Cattle-folk know their way around a grill and a kitchen, so this is not a stop to be missed.
Dinner tickets will be sold online in advance; any remaining will be on sale starting at 4 p.m. at the Sierra Valley Grange Hall.
Roberti Ranch, one of 14 sites on the Art + Ag Trail, is offering three 1.5-hour guided bus tours to see the interior of this beautiful, fifth-generation cattle and hay ranch, with limited seating of 25 spots per tour.
