Quincy Mountain Epic – Sept 22 – 24, 2023

Join SBTS on Friday, Sept 22 – Sunday, Sept 24, 2023, for our fun-filled Epic Weekend in Quincy, where the food and beer are covered for our beloved SBTS volunteers. RSVP sooner than later as these “sell-out”!

The weekend festivities include: sleeping under the stars, riding the fine trails of Mount Hough, hiking, and a lot of digging in the dirt! You do not have to be a member to participate.  We’ll post an RSVP link to this page 60 days before the event. Sign up for our newsletter, or follow our Facebook and Instagram accounts to be notified about the upcoming event.

Where to meet

Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy. We have reserved the Lower Campgrounds off of Lee Road (behind the fairgrounds) through Gate 3. We will have the whole area reserved so look for an open spot and grab it. Google Map

Local lunch spots for Sunday include the Polka Dot, Patti’s Thunder Cafe, and Quintopia. We encourage you to eat at these places and support the local economy.


We like them but they are not allowed on fairgrounds property. Please leave your furries at home.
