The Annual Monte Rio Variety Show marks its 103rd anniversary in 2014.

Join us for a special evening of music, comedy and theater to celebrate with Monte Rio and the Russian River communities. All proceeds raise funds for local charities. Past shows have featured such stars as Art Linkletter, Merv Griffin, Bing Crosby and Phil Harris and current shows have starred Clint Black, Zac Brown, Tom Scott, Steve Miller, Jerry Lopez, Big Al Anderson and Shelly Berg. Together they carry on the show tradition every July on the banks of the Russian River. With a uniquely wide range of acts, from Jazz to Classical, from Country to Rock, the Show has been a Russian River tradition for 103 years.

The 103rd “Monte Rio Variety Show” begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 24, at the Monte Rio Amphitheater.

Join your neighbors and friends for the barbeque, hosted by the Monte Rio Fire Services Foundation beginning at 4:30pm. All proceeds from the food vendors go directly back into the local Community. Gates open at 7:00am on Thursday, July 24th, for chair set up.
