The most wonderful time of the year is almost here for Tahoe music lovers…Winter Wondergrass Tahoe! This year marks the eighth annual WinterWonderGrass Tahoe festival at Palisades Tahoe. The tunes and brews will be flowing April 5-7th.


If you haven’t been to this festival yet, this is the year to do it. With delicious beverages to sample, world renowned music acts and amazing views of the stunning tram face at Palisades Tahoe, you’ll be glad you made plans to attend. Just be sure to dress for the weather at this outdoor event.


Fun Fact: This festival was created when the founders realized there were great beer festivals with bad music and amazing music festivals with bad beer…so they fixed that problem and created a 3-day event full of delicious beer and amazing tunes!


Who’s Coming to Tahoe this Year?

This year’s headliners are Sierra Ferrell, The Devil Makes Three, The Infamous Stringdusters and Paul Cauthen, along with a full slate of fantastic bluegrass, jamgrass, Americana and roots-music performers. The performers will be playing on the main stage plus don’t miss the heated tent side stages or additional concerts like the “Grass After Dark” concerts, the free “Pickin’ in the Plaza” concerts in the Village at Palisades Tahoe and on-the-snow jams on both Saturday and Sunday.


Three-day festival passes include complimentary beer, spirits, wine and spiked-seltzer tastings from independent, local brewers, daily from 2 to 5 p.m. and a complimentary commemorative WinterWonderGrass mug.


Don’t forget to bring the kiddos along if you’d like as this is a family-friendly event. Children and their parents are welcome to enjoy activities at the Kids Zone and, of course, dance along to the music!


Support for the Tahoe Community

The WinterWonderGrass team works closely with and supports local nonprofits. For their Tahoe festival, those two nonprofits are the McConkey Foundation (that supports epic causes that protect kids, wildlife, and our planet) and the Tahoe Food Hub (that provides access to sustainably grown food from small family farms within 150-miles of North Lake Tahoe). A portion of the ticket proceeds will be donated to each organization.


Sustainability Efforts

WinterWonderGrass is happy to celebrate a 70% diversion rate away from landfills at last year’s concerts. They partner with Minimal Impact, a sustainable lifestyle company, to take all the possible steps they can to reduce the environmental impact at Palisades Tahoe. Plus, the festival supplies reusable cups and bans single-use plastics. Do your part and keep Tahoe beautiful for generations to come.


See you at this year’s WinterWondergrass Tahoe festival!
