As we celebrate Jerry Garcia's 73rd birthday and mark the 20th anniversary of his passing this August, events from coast to coast offer a chance to honor his legacy, share good times with friends, and support Rex too!

Ongoing through Sunday, August 2, in the Sandy Valley Campground in White Haven, PA is the Looney Moon Festival, a weekend of music, crafts, camping, dancing, and fun for the whole family. Longtime Rex supporters Mysterytrain headline, and a portion of the price of each ticket goes to Rex.

Also on August 2, in Jerry's old neighborhood, Jerry Day returns to Jerry Garcia Amphitheatre in McLaren Park in San Francisco's Excelsior district. Enjoy an afternoon in the sun at this free celebration, with music from Stu Allen & Mars Hotel, Melvin Seals and JGB, Terrapin Family Band and Check Engine Acoustic. Get the details, plan your trip here.

On Thursday, August 13, musicians including Mark Karan, Robin Sylvester, James Nash, Neil Hampton, David Gans, Totally Dead, Teja Gerken, Alex Bleeker (Real Estate), Jason Crosby, Kyle Field (Little Wings), Roger McNamee (Moonalice), Cochrane McMillan (Tea Leaf Green) plus many more special guests converge on the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco to honor the 40th anniversary of the Grateful Dead's historic "One From the Vault" performance. A portion of the proceeds from this epic musical evening go to Rex! Get tix!

Thanks to all these great folks, and thanks to you, for supporting Rex's work!
