Beaver Dam Jam | 2016 Beaver Dam Jam Music Festival includes 3 days of live music like Classic Rock, Blues, Country, Reggae and more.
The 9th annual Beaver Dam Jam is set to kick off in May 6 and will run through May 8 in Littlefield, Ariz. The outdoor venue will host up to 15 bands in a variety of genres as well as food and beverage vendors.
The festival is organized by Bill Evans, owner of Beaver Dam Station.
“We just thought, nothing ever happens in Beaver Dam, so we started this and it has always been fun,” he said. “It gets bigger and better every year.”
Evans said the majority of people who attend are from Mesquite, St. George, and Cedar City. But as the event’s notoriety builds, people from as far away as Salt Lake City and Los Angeles are making the trek for the all-weekend event.

Gunlock County will play in the bar from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. May 8, it runs from noon to 10 pm outside with Most Wanted, Highway Poets, Soul What!?, Jensen Buck and the Family, and Cat Fish John.
