June 22, 2021 - The Mariposa Butterfly Festival (MBF) is not only about the butterfly, it is also about the music. This July 3, MBF presents a Music Festival at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds featuring Mariposa’s exceptionally talented local bands, a singer you won’t forget from the bay area and two bands from Southern California. The evening tops off with the battle of the bands; one playing at the Amigo Stage and two bands from Long Beach playing on the Front Lawn.
When we heard Dustin Heer perform, we had to sign him up. He makes every song his own. Dustin will be playing at the new Beer and Wine Gardens Saturday July 3, from 1:00 P.M. – 6:00 P.M. and on Sunday, July 4 at the Amigo stage at 1:00 P.M. (https://www.dustinheer.com/videos/)
