On the heels of a sold-out WinterWonderGrass Steamboat last month, WinterWonderGrass Tahoe will kick off their 8th annual festival this coming Friday, April 5.  The weekend in Palisades Tahoe, California will bring great music from some of the biggest names in the Americana, roots, and bluegrass scene as well as some up-and-comers that are not to be missed. Festival gates open at 2 pm Friday-Sunday, with a special free kick-off show in the village on Thursday featuring Boot Juice.

The magic pours into the community following the festival each night! Stroll over from the site to The Plaza Bar or Olympic Valley Lodge for Grass After Dark late-night series. Special tickets are required and available for purchase HERE.

In addition to music, WinterWonderGrass will offer plenty of on-site activities including the new Taste of WonderGrass.  WinterWonderGrass is part music festival, part beer festival. For eight years, the festival has featured the best in local brewers and crafters. New for 2024: the festival is expanding the tasting program to feature local brewers, plus wine, spirits, CBD seltzer, and more. Complimentary tastings take place every day from 2 - 5 pm in the three large heated music tents: Jamboree, Pickin’ Perch, and The Soap Box. Must be 21+ to sample alcoholic beverages.

“WinterWonderGrass is a community, first and foremost. We are part music festival, part beer festival, and part family reunion.  When we come together with open hearts and minds, bringing our differences and unique opinions, we begin to dissolve the illusion of separation. We intend to create a platform for artists, attendees, our families, and the natural environment to unite – building a community.” - Scotty Stoughton / Founder


WinterWonderGrass offers simple and authentic community gatherings for the adventurous spirit, concentrating on the quality of the experience over the number of attendees. WinterWonderGrass partners with resorts, communities, and local businesses to build an event curated by all.

There is nothing better than the freedom to explore new landscapes, new communities and new friendships. There’s magic that happens when children and adults from around the world gather for the alchemy of music and nature.
