About Port Costa: The town with a population of only about 200 people, is nestled in a canyon surrounded on 3 sides by East Bay Regional Park & Ranchland and the 4th side is the water of the Carquinez Straits.
Located between the Crockett and Martinez in Northwest Contra Costa County, it is an eclectic, artistic, uncommon and kind of amazing destination. Please come to visit and enjoy the afternoon!
Gonna be a really fun event. We’re working toward 300+ bluegrass enthusiasts coming to town. Rain or shine our 15,000 square foot schoolhouse is going to be filling the canyon with music!
