The combination of history, culture, nature and community that makes up the annual Fort Ross Festival is second to none. Families can experience the California landmark and enjoy Russian, Balkan, Native American and other folk dances and performances, traditional games, a handmade craft and art fair, the famous Fort Ross beer garden and the best local food trucks. Back by popular demand, the Fort Ross Militia will also host a historical firearms demonstration complete with cannons. The Fort Ross Festival takes place on Saturday, July 28, at Fort Ross State Historic Park, 19005 Hwy. 1, Jenner. 10am to 6:30pm. $20 per car. fortross.org.
