The 3rd annual WinterWonderGrass Festival attracted thousands of fans to North Lake Tahoe, March 30th- April 2nd for the sold out three day music and brews festival.  With bluebird powder days giving way to snowy winter nights, fans gathered to watch their favorite bluegrass bands play into the California sky. The festival has created a sense of community with fans returning each year traveling from over 40 states to see more than 30 world-renowned bluegrass acts. .

WinterWonderGrass, in its third Lake Tahoe-area incarnation, this time with a feet-thick blanket of snow all around, brought a distinctive assemblage of mountaintop adventure-seekers to Northern California for a symphonic unification of jam-happy roots and bluegrass music, fine craft brews, and mountain views/activities. The setting for the utopian weekend, March 31 to April 2, was once again the pastoral Squaw Valley, site of the 1960 Winter Olympics.

WinterWonderGrass Festival has seen huge success since the line up announce for Steamboat Springs, Colorado and have just announced the festival is officially sold out. WinterWonderGrass, a sustainable, community-focused, lifestyle-driven bluegrass and craft brew experience is likely to have its largest attendance to date this coming year in Steamboat .  The festival went on sale with three day festival tickets on October 13 and has sold out of all ticket types.

WinterWonderGrass, a sustainable, community-focused, lifestyle-driven bluegrass and craft brew experience, returns to Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows for its third year. WinterWonderGrass has established itself as the premier winter bluegrass music and brew festival in the nation, featuring 25 bands performing on four stages over three days. Performing against snowy mountains and star-filled California skies are headlining artists Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band, Leftover Salmon, The Sam Bush Band, and The Infamous Stringdusters. 

Music and brews will integrate with the mountains of Steamboat Springs to deliver an authentic Colorado gathering celebrating bluegrass and craft beer. The 5th year festival was born in Edwards, Colorado, moved into Avon in 2014 and expanded to Squaw Valley, California, creating WinterWonderGrass Tahoe.  The festival has now found the ideal Colorado location in Steamboat, Ski Town, U.S.A.®.  Steamboat Springs has welcomed WinterWonderGrass as a natural addition to the town’s rich western history and close-knit community.

Music, Brews and Mountains is the foundation for the WinterWonderGrass Festival returning to the Vail Valley February 19- 21 for its fourth year, featuring more than 25 bands and 18 Colorado breweries over three days. WinterWonderGrass Festival is the perfect storm of world-class bluegrass, roots and acoustic artists, craft beer and libations and star filled Rocky Mountain nights encapsulating all things Colorado.

Nestled in the Sierras at the base of Squaw Valley Lodge, Winter Wonder Grass opened its door for the first time on the West Coast to deliver a top notch line up of Bluegrass music. The previously only located in Colorado festival spread its wings to expand to another Grass loving area in Tahoe. Billed as a Beer and Music festival the bill, did not lie. Every major brewer on the West Coast was in attendance from Lagunitas, Tahoe Favorite 50/50, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Green Flash and many, many more!
