COLUTERVILLE — The 27th Annual Coyote Howl & Car Show, Saturday, May 19, at the Coulterville Park is an old-fashioned, family oriented event.

Daytime activities include a parade down Main Street, a car show, music, and a variety of craft, art, food and merchandise booths as well as the all important Howlin’ Contests.

In addition to the nationally famous, howling-good, prize-winning coyote calls that emanate from the Coulterville Park the daytime and evening, events include live music. This year, Coulterville’s own Keith Keenom and his Mountain Fever Band will be belting out genuine cowboy music during the day and the Dyna-Mo band will be rock’n and roll’n all night long at the Coulter Café.

Keenom and his Mountain Fever Band includes Tommy Phillips, Steve Leeper and Mike Narango. All four of these great musicians have a wealth of authentic bluegrass and country western that will have everyone clapping and stomping their feet and enjoying their western humor.

The five-member Dyna-Mo band kicks it with a big sound in Vintage Rock n’ Roll. Hailing out of Twain Harte, they are regular favorites at the Pine Mountain Lake Lounge, The Lumber Yard Cafe and Brew and elsewhere throughout the Gold Country.

Artists, crafts people, sponsors, antique and classic car buffs are all encouraged to signup now for space. Low fee for parade entries, booths and the car show make it easy to participate Fees are just $10 for an individual or $15 for a group/float for the parade, $30 for a booth and $25 for the car show (optional parade registration included). Sponsorships range from $75 on up.

If you would like to secure a booth or a space in the car show or want to take full advantage of a sponsorship by signing on now, contact Gail Tyler, Howl Chair, at 209-878-3015 or email her at

The Dinner Dance is a great way to top off a fun-filled day. Starting at 5:30 pm in the Coulter Café garden this year’s event will have everyone jump’n and jive’n to vintage rock ‘n roll belted out by the dynamic Dyna-Mo band. A “Howlin Good” meal and vintage music anyone can dance to is still just $16 per person. Janelle Daniel, owner of the Café contributes the labor so that the Howl receives a generous contribution from this event as well as from the day’s activities.
