Welcome, Strawberry Music Festival

The Nevada County Fairgrounds is pleased to announce that this year’s Strawberry Music Festival will be held at the beautiful tree-covered Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley on September 11 – 14.

This popular music festival – which features four days of music, camping and recreation – draws thousands of musicians, entertainers, and music enthusiasts from across the United States each year. The festival features a wide range of musical acts, representing many different musical genres, including Americana, bluegrass, blues, folk, swing, rock, Cajun, Celtic and gospel.

The Strawberry Music Festival is one of several popular, world-class music festivals held at the Nevada County Fairgrounds each year. This year’s line-up includes:
