  2. Hi Tom,

    I wanted to share an upcoming cultural event with you. Ridgecrest will be hosting the first annual Petroglyph and Heritage Festival this November 15 and 16. The festival is a celebration of Native American rock art in the area, as well as cultural traditions. There is a huge festival planned, as well ad guided tours into the mountains where the art is located. If you’d like any more information feel free to email me, or take a look at rpfestival.com! Love your site!


    • Hi Brandon! Thank you so much for letting me know! This is exactly the kind of event people need to know about, especially raising awareness on the rich Native American history of our state! I just looked at your site and read the LA Times article. Congratulations on this inaugural event! I will post this up soon to help spread the word and will email you for more information!
