SNWMF 2017 IS FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES

The Sierra Nevada World Music Festival is Northern California’s premiere world and reggae music festival. The New York Times has named SNWMF as one of the best music festivals in the U.S. and LargeUp has included the festival in its ‘ToppaTens’ as one of the world’s finest Caribbean music festivals.

This year’s lineup features some of music's greats in world, roots, vintage, dancehall, modern reggae and ska artists. The bands are scheduled in tandem on two stages, and the festival also includes a "Jamaican-style" late-night dancehall that includes sound systems from far and wide.

But the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival is also very "kid-friendly" with an extensive array of activities to please both your children as well as the child in you. The show's varied offerings for children including music performers, a parade, bounce houses, arts and crafts, games, storytelling, puppets, balloon artists, face painting and more. The opportunities to participate in free drum, dance, and yoga sessions throughout the weekend make it possible for cultural exploration on many levels.



Activities Taking Place at Sierra Nevada World Music Festival 2017 That Are Appropriate for Children of All Ages!!!

Music Means ME!
As a music performer and educator, "Dr. Paul" has presented the Music Means ME! Jam Session to elementary schools throughout California. In 2013, he met vocalist/bassist Hubert Reese. The dynamic collaboration of these two musicians brought this music concept to a new, exciting level at Sacramento’s annual multicultural Banana Festival where the “Jam Session” is now featured each year.
