Returning for its eight year to the delight of four-season festival goers, WinterWonderGrass Festival will return yet again to Lake Tahoe, California at Squaw Valley Resort on March 27th-29th. Founded by Scotty Stoughton, a lifelong musician and festivalgoer alike, WinterWonderGrass, “aims to cultivate and nurture the relationship between nature, authentic music, and communal family, creating a vehicle for inspiration,” according to its mission statement. What began as a tiny grassroots festival in a parking lot in Edwards, Colorado has transformed into a trio of multi-day Alpine-set progressive string hootenannies in Vermont, Colorado and California. This year’s lineup, setting, libations, and late nights look to be the finest year of the WWG Tahoe yet.
WinterWonderGrass is known for providing an unforgettable, well-oiled, collaborative extravaganza, but this year’s lineup for Squaw Valley takes the cake. With a multi-stage lineup topped by headliners The Devil Makes Three, The Infamous Stringdusters, and Billy Strings (treating fans to lengthy sets on both Saturday and Sunday). Festival goers will enjoy rare West Coast performances from The Larry Keel Experience and Keller & The Keels. Other greatly anticipated performances include bluegrass legend Peter Rowan, and high-octane jamgrass acts such as Fruition, The Lil Smokies, Kitchen Dwellers, and Trout Steak Revival. Guests will bask in the glory of special one-off performances such as Andy Falco & Travis Book performing acoustic Jerry Garcia and collaborative artists in residence Bridget Law and Will Mosheim throughout the weekend. WWG has always included a varied lineup of Americana, and Tahoe’s 2020 lineup also features artists of the folksier vein including The War and Treaty, Brothers Comatose, Della Mae, Lindsay Lou, and Midnight North. Check out the full lineup and multi-day schedule here.
Lest we not forget to mention the three hours daily of beer, cider, and tea tasting included with your weekend pass from the finest local craft beverage providers. WWG is committed to providing a safe and accessible experience to all, including free shuttles from Squaw to Tahoe City, water fill stations, extra hand washing stations, additional medical protocols, new service procedures and beverage handling protocols. Their team is incredibly stoked to continue to deliver the cleanest, safest and most inspiring community gatherings in sacred mountains communities.
