WinterWonderGrass is an annual festival that happens in several cities. Of course, we’re interested in the Tahoe edition, and it’s taking place this year from April 1-3, 2016. WinterWonderGrass Tahoe’s first year was successful enough to sell out, so this year’s festival promises to be even better! Take a “winter audience”, add in our North Lake Tahoe kind of lifestyle, and make sure you include loads of great music. That’s WinterWonderGrass. Oh, did we mention the beer tickets, the wine, or the great food? Here are a few more details to possible pique your interest…
Though you can attend a single day of WinterWonderGrass, you can purchase one of several different passes/packages, and they’re worth looking at in terms of what they bring you (there are more than what we’ve listed here):
- 3-Day “KT-22” Pass. For $139, you get the 3-day general admission, a commemorative beer mug, and 3 hours of beer tastings every day.
- Tier 2 VIP (3 Day) “KT-22” Pass. Need to warm up? With this pass, you’ll have access to a heated side stage viewing tent. What else? Lots! Complimentary craft beer, daily wine and spirit tastings, a commemorative laminate, the same 3 hours of daily beer tasting as above, a Klean Kanteen commemorative mug, and more. This pass will cost you $299.
- VIP “Music & Mountain” (3-Day) Pass W/ 3 Days Skiing @ Squaw/Alpine Meadows. Coming in at approximately $450, this is an amazing deal! Take the Tier 2 VIP pass, above, and add in extras like private lift access on the Sunday, daily food offerings each day from 5 – 9 p.m., great views from the top of Emigrant lift, and much more.
Please note that all ticket prices above depend on availability, and that taxes and/or service fees will to be added to the prices.
The music line-up this year is incredible and expansive. It includes Railroad Earth, Greensky Bluegrass, Elephant Revival, and another dozen bands and acts. Brewers represented include Golden Road and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.
With a gorgeous environment that is Squaw Valley and the High Sierra, imagine yourself being in attendance with family and/or good friends. The music includes acoustic roots and local blue grass. Some of California’s best craft beers will be available, as mentioned, and there will be great wines and lots of food to choose from. Dancing is in the offing as well. If all this sounds like “indulgence” (which it is!), feel good in knowing that this festival focuses on “sustainability, local non-profits and support of the arts”. It makes for a great formula.
Some of the passes were already sold out at the time of writing, so you may want to visit this website to browse what’s available—3-day or single day passes—and consider making your purchase now.
