3 Reasons to take your Calabasas RV Rental to WinterWonderGrass

Posted on Mar 08, 2017

This year marks the third annual WinterWonderGrass Festival at Squaw Valley, near the north shore of California’s Lake Tahoe.  This now annual gathering is a celebration of the winter season, taking the form of a bluegrass and craft beer festival.  With onsite parking and camping for your 1st Choice RV Calabasas RV rental, you can position yourself perfectly to take advantage of everything this amazing festival has to offer.  Not convinced?  Here are three reasons why you should plan to be at Squaw Valley from March 31st to April 2nd, 2017.

Dance to 27 of the Country’s Top Bluegrass and Americana Bands over Three Days

WinterWonderGrass is held over three days at the base of the infamous “Tram Face” at Squaw Valley Resort.  Various musicians will take to four different stages from 2pm to 8:30pm, before handing it over to the headlining act that will grace the main stage until 10pm.  This year’s headliners include The Infamous Stringdusters, Yonder Mountain String Band, Greensky Bluegrass, and Leftover Salmon.  Some of the most magical moments of this festival occur when special guests join the stage from other bands in a collaborative toe-tapping effort to get the crowd dancing.  For those night owl attendees, there are also a variety of late night shows around the area that historically have also provided some of this weekend’s musical highlights.  

Taste Unlimited Samples from 14 Local California Breweries

One of the biggest things that separate WinterWonderGrass from other music festivals of its kind is the focus on celebrating the local burgeoning craft beer culture.  While Sierra Nevada serves as the festival’s top sponsor, 13 other breweries will line the walls of two heated beer tents that also serve as side stages for performers.  Here, patrons can take their free commemorative aluminum pint on a tasting tour for a few hours each afternoon.  This allows you to taste a variety of beers and ciders, pick your favorites, and mingle with fellow festivalgoers and beer aficionados alike.  

Enjoy one of Lake Tahoe’s Best Winter’s in Recent History

Given your Calabasas RV rental camping spot in the heart of Squaw Valley and the Sierra Mountains, you have unrivaled access to take advantage of a record winter when not sipping and dancing at WinterWonderGrass proper.  Whether you are an experienced skier or new to the sport, the beauty of Lake Tahoe provides the perfect backdrop to get outside and play in the snow.  If skiing isn’t your thing at all, consider snowshoeing, sledding, or simply visiting the beautiful snow-lined shores of North America’s largest alpine lake.

The surface level attractions should make WinterWonderGrass a highly desirable destination for your Calabasas RV rental road trip.  However, it is the unpredictable that truly makes this festival something magical.  Pop-up musical performances from around the area, new favorite breweries and friends, and all of the unforeseen adventure that accompanies any road trip have made this festival a 1st Choice RV favorite for the past two years.  So, turn on some bluegrass, grab a beer, and start planning your WinterWonderGrass getaway today. Cheers!
