Today, Bonfire Entertainment solidifies the triumphant return of WinterWonderGrass California, taking place April 1–3, 2022 at Palisades Tahoe, located in the North Lake Tahoe region of California.

Music, brews and mountains have always collided at WinterWonderGrass, and WWG CA 2022 promises to be no different.

I was a real nowhere lass, sitting on my nowhere ass, making all my nowhere plans for nobody. Memorial Day weekend is supposed to be spent at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL for Summer Camp Music Festival. Two years without my big blowout weekend left me a real blind bat.
