Not a day goes by where someone, somewhere isn’t taking the stage. Nevada City looks a little like Sundance every January, when filmmakers, celebrities, social innovators and well-known adventurers arrive for the Wild and Scenic Film Festival. The three-day event showcases films about nature, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture, and Native American and indigenous cultures.

The Nevada Theatre, Miners Foundry Cultural Center, and the Center for the Arts host everyone from Kris Kristofferson and Ani DiFranco to regional performances of Shakespeare and local dance companies. Tony and Emmy Award-winning comedienne-actress, writer and producer Lily Tomlin has brought her live stage show to the Veterans Memorial Auditorium. Comedians, magicians, and acrobats have all found the spotlight in Nevada County. And while the drum beats throughout the year, the mountains truly resonate with music in the summer months with Music in the Mountains, and the Truckee River Regional Park’s outdoor concerts.
