OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. — Squaw Valley doesn’t simply rest during the summer months. While August may signal the close of summer’s long days, the Village at Squaw is still going strong this weekend with the Brews, Jazz and Funk Fest.

An impressive and eclectic lineup of bands keeps things hopping on two stages throughout the weekend. Performers include Thick Newton, Con Brio, and The Revivalists on Saturday, with Mark Sexton Band, Mingo Fishtrap and Grammy award-winning Rebirth Brass Band on Sunday. Groove Session will take the second stage both days.

More than 40 craft beers from local and regional breweries will be available for $5 each (16 ounces). New limited edition stainless Brews, Jazz and Funk glasses will be available for $10, and this price includes one beer.

The festival runs from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Daily entry fee is $5 per person, with proceeds going to the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe.
