California Music Festival in Grass Valley


california music festival



WorldFest July 15 - 18, 2010, Grass Valley


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.
