2016 will be the 43rd year for this special family tradition.  This year the Analy Football Stadium has undergone a beautiful multimillion dollar reconstruction.  A new track has been installed, there are new bleachers on the south side and an artificial turf field.  Due to these changes we will be posting new guidelines for what the school will ask of our attendees.

Featuring live music, dancing, free games and relays, food, a fun raffle for prizes, the community comes together, with blankets and picnics, to celebrate Independence Day.

Bands start to play, along with the dancing, at 6 pm. A flag ceremony, led by fife and drum, precedes the singing of the Star Spangled Banner, by The Bija Children's Choir, and then the Blast-off of the fireworks show begins at approximately 9:40 pm. .

This is our Club’s major fundraising event. More than 4000 people attend each year.

Numerous generous sponsors, volunteers, the Sebastopol Fire and Police Departments, all contribute to its continued success.  Over 30 community organizations are direct beneficiaries of our Club’s donations.

The National anthem will be sung this year by

Poor Man’s Whiskey is:
Northern California’s outlaw music bards bring a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of bluegrass/old time, southern rock, and old school jam to stages and festivals worldwide. Poor Man’s Whiskey has been growing exponentially in the past 5 years selling out venues across the country such as the legendary Fillmore in SF.This “High-Octane Hootenanny” will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stompin good time. Poor Man’s Whiskey has evolved into a ragged, spontaneous beast pulling from equally deep wells of story-telling originals, expertly crafted covers and zany on-stage shenanigans. PMW has released 6 studio albums and have a stunning repertoire to choose songs from creating a new show every night. In addition to their upbeat original sets Poor Man’s Whiskey have developed special late night “tribute sets” with their original bluegrass/americana twists which include “Dark Side of the Moonshine” (bluegrass interpretation of the classic Pink Floyd album) , “Graceland” (tribute to the classic Paul Simon album),  “Old and In the Way”,  “Tribute to Allman Brothers Band”, and “Tribute to Kate Wolf”.  Crowds of all ages will sing, dance and have a good time!

Notable festivals and shows: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Byron Bay Blues and Roots Music Festival (Australia), High Sierra Music Festival, Wakarusa Music Festival, Yonder Mountain Harvest Festival, Kate Wolf Music Festival, Phases of the Moon, Hillside Music Festival (Canada), Evolve Festival, (Canada) Harmony Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, Dead on the Creek, 4 Peaks Music Festival, Joshua Tree Music Festival, The Summer Meltdown, Las Tortugas, Lohi Music Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival (band competition finalists), Salmonstock Music Festival, String Cheese’s Horning’s Hideout, Multiple sell out shows at the Fillmore San Francisco, and many many more.
