Strawberry Music Festival is a five-day, family-friendly campout with live music featuring nationally recognized touring acts and local up-and-coming performing artists. This year we celebrate Strawberry 40th anniversary and are looking forward to an epic reunion of family and friends! Since our first festival in 1982, Strawberry has become a closely knit community of music lovers whose collective ethos is rooted in kindness, cooperation, and consideration, coined as “The Strawberry Way.” Set on 100 acres of conifer forest, Strawberry’s Spring Festival is held at the Nevada County Fairgrounds where camping is made comfortable by gentle terrain and ample amenities. Programming includes a wide variety of activities and entertainment for all ages and abilities, making Strawberry the perfect holiday weekend getaway.
