Crestline, CA – The second Corks & Hops will take place in Crestline on Saturday, July 1, 2017, from 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. This is going to be a great evening because it coincides with Jamboree Days. Tickets are $30 each and are available at the ticket booths, at Arrowhead Credit Union or next to Hearth and Sage in Top Town.
There will be three FREE shuttles running from Lower Business District to Historic Top Town to alleviate congestion. There will also be volunteers on the shuttles to direct people and answer questions.
