The new Shasta Mountain Art, Wine & Brew Festival has been scheduled for July 1 from noon to 5 p.m. as a fundraising event for the Siskiyou Ice Rink and local hockey association.

The Festival is being held at the old Shasta View Drive-in, now known as Iron Horse Unlimited, on the same Saturday that Mount Shasta’s 4th of July celebration begins.

It will feature craft brewery beer, wine from award-winning wineries, and spirits samples, live music, catered food from local restaurants, and raffle giveaways.

It is being put on by the Mt. Shasta Icebreakers, a newly formed 501c3 organization with a mission “to provide a fun, safe and properly supervised atmosphere for hockey instruction that emphasizes skill development and also promotes the establishment of value-based life lessons on the part of its players, including the importance of hard work, dedication to goals, good sportsmanship and discipline.”

Team mom and Icebreakers secretary Ruth Altes said some of the funds raised will be used to continue Ice Rink operations and some for hockey equipment and jerseys for youth hockey players.

Funds will also support travel expenses, “IF we are able to do really well,” Altes wrote in an email.

She said the Icebreakers are partnering with Friends of the Rink, the volunteer group that has run the Siskiyou Ice rink for the past couple of years, and some of the money raised will go to FOR for rink operations.

Raffle prizes include: a four-day houseboat trip on Lake Shasta, a season pass and day passes from the Mt. Shasta Ski Park, A YETI cooler full of goodies, spa certificates, cords of wood delivered, log furniture and more.

Altes thanked the local businesses who have supported the event.

Admission tickets for a beer and wine punch card are $25 per person, ID required. Designated Driver and non-alcoholic admission is $15.

All admission tickets will receive one raffle ticket. Food is being provided by Don Tito’s Mexican Restaurant and All Aboard Espresso. Iron Horse Unlimited and Train Light Creative are working together to make the event possible.
