The annual CasparFest fills the Caspar Community Center with music, artists, crafters, and "green" enterprises – all sharing traditions that connect with the sun, the planet, and the finest traditions of lasting technology from the folk of many lands over centuries. Renowned multi-instrumentalist and honorary Casparado Joe Craven leads Gertie, Caspar's reclusive Gorse Monster, on her annual procession amongst the booths, local musicians jam on the outdoor stage, and babies dance in the grass. Beautiful handmade objects are admired and change hands. Delicious locally-grown food is prepared and shared. Caspar, the friendly ghost town, is a former sawmill town on the Mendocino Coast of California midway between Mendocino and Fort Bragg.
