This years home of the Strawberry Music Spring Festival is the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley, CA. Set on nearly 100 acres, just minutes from historic downtown Grass Valley, the Nevada County Fairgrounds is the most beautiful fairgrounds in California and beyond. The fairgrounds offer a large camping area and RV park, gentle terrain, restroom and shower facilities, disabled access, and a sweet meadow lined lake (sorry, no swimming) all nestled amongst thousands of magnificent trees. The fairgrounds are minutes away from shopping and services. For more information about what is available in the town of Grass Valley, please check out the following links:
