WinterWonderGrass California will be making its triumphant return to the North Lake Tahoe region next weekend, April 1–3, 2022, after a two-year postponement due to COVID.
The highly anticipated lineup from the postponed 2020 festival, which rolled over to 2022, is completely sold out, including all 3-day GA, VIP and single-day tickets. However, those wishing to attend WinterWonderGrass California may jump on the official fan-to-fan waitlist exchange via Lyte. Given the sold out nature of the event, and in line with their sustainability initiatives, festival organizers encourage attendees to explore carpooling and public transit options.
As with past WinterWonderGrass California events, a free show in the Village will kick off the festivities on Thursday, March 31st from 2:00 - 5:00 PM featuring music by Pixie & The Partygrass Boys. Attendees of the festival and members of the general public are also encouraged to attend the free shows in the Plaza from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. AJ Lee and Blue Summit will hold it down Friday and Sunday, while Cris Jacobs takes the stage Saturday.
In addition to the free Pickin' in the Plaza series, WinterWonderGrass California will also present two free shows on the mountain at the Gold Coast Lodge, featuring the WWG Tahoe All-Stars on Saturday and Rapidgrass on Sunday. The Gold Coast shows are scheduled to run from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM each day.
Event organizers are also pleased to announce the addition of the WinterWonderBus, a late-night shuttle offering for fans after festival gates close. The bus service will run nightly beginning at 10:30 PM, with last call at 1:30 AM. Bus routes will include a service from Palisades Tahoe to Truckee, and a second from Palisades Tahoe to Tahoe City. Tickets for the entirety of the weekend are $20 and are to be purchased separate from festival tickets. Grab your WinterWonderBus tickets here.
Finally, a limited number of tickets remain for select Grass After Dark shows including Trout Steak Revival, Midnight North & Twisted Pine, AJ Lee and Blue Summit, Rapidgrass & Tyler Grant and Friends, Pixie & The Partygrass Boys and the Sunday finale with Kitchen Dwellers. Tickets for the remaining Grass After Dark shows are available here.
The return of WinterWonderGrass California is certainly not something to miss. With the addition of The California Honeydrops as the third and final headliner last fall, fans in attendance will be dazzled by two sets of Billy Strings, along with performances by The Infamous Stringdusters, Peter Rowan, Keller & The Keels, Fruition, The War & Treaty, Brothers Comatose, Kitchen Dwellers, Della Mae, Lindsay Lou, Larry Keel Experience, Town Mountain, Trout Steak Revival, Midnight North, Cris Jacobs, Pixie & The Partygrass Boys, Old Salt Union, Rapidgrass, TK & The Holy Know Nothings, Twisted Pine and AJ Lee and Blue Summit.
