Mayor Paula Perotte said, “Every year this event gets better and better. I love being a part of the Dam Dinner and seeing so many familiar and new faces each year.”

The Dam Dinner is a popular event bringing together friends and neighbors. Tables and chairs are set up by the dam with breathtaking views of Lake Los Carneros and the mountains. Bring your own picnic dinner and beverages or purchase food at the event from Mylestone BBQ who will be joining us for the first time. Enjoy live music from local bluegrass group the Salt Martians, a staple of the Dam Dinner. Commemorate the event with a 2024 Dam Dinner t-shirt. Bring the kids! The Dam Dinner is a family-friendly event. There will be face painters and Kona Ice.
