CAMP MATHER — The Strawberry Music Festival, held over the Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, has been hosting some of the world’s best known entertainers from the folk, Americana, bluegrass and rhythm and blues genres along with rising new talent in the beautiful mountain setting of Yosemite for more than 30 years.

The 32nd annual Spring Music Festival takes place Memorial Day Weekend, May 23 to 27.

Music fans and families come from all over the country to attend due in large part to the outstanding performer lineup.

Equally attractive are the family-friendly activities planned throughout the weekend and the thriving camp jam culture that creates a musical sound bed wherever you go.

The combined effect: Strawberry has become a safe place where people go to recharge their batteries, spend quality time with their families and to enjoy the splendor of the outdoors.

One festival-goer put it this way: “What makes Strawberry special to us after 25 years is the music, the scenery and the camaraderie of friends.”

Headliners for the Spring Music Festival include: Richard Thompson Electric Trio, John Prine, Sam Bush Band and the James Hunter Six.

Some of the country’s best guitar players, songwriters and virtuosic musicians will add their talents to the pool of 21 musical acts who will be featured in two main stages shows each day, plus intimate workshops and late night performances.

In addition to all the music, Strawberry has many recreational activities planned at the beautiful park-like setting of Birch Lake, just a short walk away from the main stage. Three full days of programming for children and adults include arts and crafts, storytelling, nature walks, music workshops, dance and yoga classes, sketch, watercolor and photography workshops plus a robust schedule of teen activities (dances, open mic night, etc.) to round out the Strawberry experience.

The 350-acre site has permanent facilities that include tennis courts, a volleyball pit and a basketball court. The terrain is gentle with ample room for camping with family and friends.

New ticket pricing promises to make the festival more affordable than ever with two-day tickets now available and reduced ticket prices for teens.

Visit the Strawberry Website for more information at strawberrymusic.com or call 209-984-8630, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Strawberry Music Festivals are held at Camp Mather on the border of Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
