Important Information

Medical & Safety- Medical staff is available to help with basic first aid needs from Thursday through Sunday during the festival. Hours of operation of the Medical Tent are 8:00 AM each morning until 11:00 PM each evening. When the Med Tent is closed, 24-hour emergency assistance is available at the Safety Command Post. In the event of an emergency, the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital is just minutes away in the heart of Grass Valley. In severe cases, paramedics are on site and an ambulance can be dispatched immediately. If you see someone who needs medical assistance at the festival, please go to the Med Tent, the Safety Command Post, or find a Staff person with a radio. Our Safety crews are based at the Safety Command Post 24-hours daily to keep folks safe throughout the festival and can be found throughout the festival grounds wearing Security/Safety vests and hats. If you witness unsafe activities or behavior, please alert Security staff at the Command Post.

Telephone Access- While we hope that you will choose to unplug, cell phones do work at the Nevada County Fairgrounds and there is at least one payphone on site.

Water Conservation- The Nevada County Fairgrounds has an adequate water supply. Water conservation is always a good idea, but is especially so this season. Please read the posted signs and observe the “Strawberry 3 minute shower”.

Recycling- Over the years Strawberry has developed a comprehensive recycling program intended to decrease the amount of trash entering landfills. We continue to evaluate additional options and evolve our recycling program. Please make use of all of the recycling options available and wherever possible keep you mug, plate, and utensils for reuse during the festival. Thank you for your work and for incorporating recycling into your daily routine.
