The Traditions of the Monte Rio Show  

The Monte Rio Community Variety Show began StCatherinein 1911 for the Russian River communities and to raise money for local causes. The show was originally performed at St. Catherine Church and today the annual event is held on the banks of the Russian River at the beautiful Monte Rio Amphitheater. The event is organized by Community volunteers, who also sell the tickets and refreshments. Great performers, many of them stars of stage and screen, entertain and make possible this very important local fundraising event. It is a world class show, performed in the town of Monte Rio, population 1,104 in the heart of the California Vacation Wonderland.For more information please contact us at Email
