This weekend is a special weekend here in the Coachella Valley of Southern California.  Both Stagecoach, a premier country music event, and The White Party, the largest gay dance music festival in the world according to the official event page, are being held at opposite ends of the valley.


California's Country Music Festival known as Stagecoach is being held April 25-27 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. It is produced by Golden Voice and AEG Live! Crystal Gayle, Don MacLean, Lynard Skynard, Duane Eddy, Hunter Hayes and Eric Paslay are among the 73 musical artists scheduled to perform.

At the same venue, an International Barbeque Cookers Association (IBCA) sanctioned BBQ contest will also take place, with 30 contestants scheduled to compete for the California State Championship. Everything from Pig Candy to Moo-Oink Balls will be available in the Taste of BBQ experience.

There will be a wide variety of food and beverages offered, including barbeque, vegetarian, vegan, raw and gluten-free options. Full bars will be located within the venue.

An abundance of activities are scheduled, including an appearance of the famous Budweiser Clydesdales, a Toyota custom off-road course, and the iconic giant ferris wheel.  Vendors will be selling clothing, jewelry, souvenirs, bottled water and more.


The White Party celebrates its 25th anniversary in Palm Springs this year, and is produced by Jeffrey Sanker. Carmen Electra will be crowned “Queen of the White Party”.

A giant pool party will be held at the Renaissance Hotel Palm Springs, featuring the talent of Che'Nelle, SHE and Scheana Marie. Ariana Grande is scheduled to perform on Saturday night at the main event at the Palm Springs Convention Center.

At the Sunday Circus Icon T-Dance, there will be two giant 100 foot high Ferris wheels, and the day will culminate with the biggest fireworks display in White Party history, choreographed to the music of DJ/Producer Wayne G.

There are 8 parties scheduled over the the 3 days, and about 30,000 men from all over the world are expected to attend.

These are just two examples of the many events that take place throughout the year. The Coachella Valley is a desirable place to live, with its temperate climate and  350 days a year of sunshine. Celebrities, retirees, executives, heads of state and families all own homes here, and enjoy the resort lifestyle unique to the Greater Palm Springs area.
