Join us for all your favorite music and programs at the 66th Strawberry Music Festival in our 35th year. The Fall Festival at Westside offers lots of great camping space to choose from in expansive conifer studded meadows, amongst sprawling oaks, nestled into wooded folds and perched along winding hillside trails set on 175 acres. Amenities include hot showers, bathroom facilities, hand washing stations, and access to potable water. Nestled on the doorstep to the Stanilaus National Forest in the heart of the Sierra Nevada foothills, the charming gold rush town Sonora is just minutes away with lots of services including lodging, dining, recreation and all the provisions you’ll need for four days of fun. Across Turnback Creek, Westside directly borders Tuolumne, with a nice several parks, ball diamond, library, swimming pool, museum, and Veteran’s Memorial Hall just a short walk away. Explore the scenery of the Sierra foothills or settle in for the weekend with a variety of cuisine in the food court and lots of great shopping opportunities. With plenty of space for groups of any size, the Fall Festival is your perfect getaway destination.
This year Strawberry presents the gold standard in main stage entertainment, intimate side stage performances, top-notch children’s programming, workshops and activities for the whole family, and some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Programs like the Breakfast Club and the Band Scramble, live broadcasts by Hog Ranch Radio, and Strawberry’s legendary camp jam culture are what makes this YOUR festival. Please join us this season with your instruments and radio in tow, ready to laugh, play, sing, dance, eat, and be entertained!
