The California Worldfest is one of those events that is so popular, its
concert guests spread like fire in word-of-mouth fashion at this
incredible music festival among the tall trees of Grass Valley.
Formed in 1997, this annual concert extravaganza brings out all ages for
some classic music that you won't find in one venue in California Gold
Country over an entire year's time in most instances.
Held at the Grass Valley Fairgrounds, there's camping available for the
multi-day event (usually held 4 days) and the price of camping and
passes are pretty good. Prices range from $35 for a one-day
adult music pass to $120 for four days of music and camping included.
The web site offers all the details needed to buy your ticket and head
for the show. Grass Valley is known for its warm summers, so you'll
probably want to take clothes that offer cool relief...shorts, short
sleeve shirts, tanks, hats, sunblock. Evening in the Sierra Foothills
can cool down quite a bit, though in July it's not likely you'll be too
cold. Just be sure to pack a jacket and long pants as back-up.
