What Is Two Day Town?

Two Day Town is a Leave-No-Trace family oriented camping and community music event held each year during the last full weekend of April at Lake Del Valle Regional Park, with an emphasis on East Bay social family ties. This beautiful park, nestled in the hills South of Livermore, abuts the Ohlone Wilderness and provides a serene environment for getting away from the hustle of everyday life.

We offer three days of live-on-stage local music with live-mixed professional quality sound, uncountable impromptu jam sessions among the hundreds of musicians, tent & RV camping either on the Two Day Town site or in the adjacent regional park campground, a staffed creative activity area for kids, and catered food service for those that don't want to prepare their own meals.

Two Day Town provides an opportunity for people to strengthen long term relationships in an inviting setting, and to simply relax and enjoy the people, music and activities. As a group, our purpose is to take responsibility for creating a better world in our little space, one weekend at a time. We maintain a Leave-No-Trace philosophy and we leave the park in better condition than we find it.

2018 RV Parking Reservations

Both upper & lower lots are now reserved/paid parking

(no link yet; page pending...)
In 2017 we implemented a paid reservation system for the Upper RV Lot. It was a necessary step to keep Two Day Town financially viable. The experiment worked and helped substantially in covering 2017 event expenses but unfortunately we still don't break even. We are hoping that by expanding the reservation system to the Lower Lot we can reach stability and keep ticket price increases minimal. We have not quite finalized the plan for 2018 but that will be forthcoming soon. Guests that have a history of using favorite spots in the Lower Lot will have first dibs on those spots. We know most of you pretty well. More info will be posted soon, and we will probably begin offering space in late February.

Food Service Status

Probably similar to 2017

Our new normal is not having use of the food concession facility. The building is being repurposed by the park service, so going forward we will be arranging some alternate way of providing our guests with food service. In 2017 we had Pleasant Hill's Steel Smokin' BBQ & Catering bring in a food truck that parked near the top of the lower parking lot. For 2018 we will probably make similar arrangements although at this early date nothing has been nailed down. You can click for their 2017 TDT BBQ menu

Did you miss Evening Town?

Back in mid October we had a great turn-out for our Evening Town fund raiser at Tesla Vintners in Livermore. It was the best deal in town for a fun evening out. If you missed this one, shame shame, but put a note on your February calendar for Feb Fest and the Not Valentine's Day Volunteer Party.

Prospective Performers take note...

Mark your calendar for much earlier next year!

We know this breaks your heart, and we're sorry, but we're pretty much done with the artist selection process for 2018. We received about a jillion six requests to perform and are actively sifting through the mountain of talent trying to figure out how to get a hunnerd plus 'really good' acts into thirty something slots. It's hard, you know. They don't squeeze down so well.
