About The Artwork
 


Posters from past festivals

The Sierra Nevada World Music Festival promotes only "conscious" music. "Conscious" music is music with a message of peace, unity and brotherhood which transcends the divisions of race and culture. Each year, the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival brings artists to Northern California that have rarely or never appeared in the United States.

The Festival strives to bring together music and nature lovers of all races and cultures. Promotional efforts are geared towards attracting young families. Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by a paid adult. The Sierra Nevada World Music Festival offers a Family Camp area and an extensive program of children's activities throughout the weekend - including dance and music workshops, songfests, storytelling, arts and crafts, soccer games and other entertainment. Camping is an integral part of the Festival because it provides affordable accommodations for ticket buyers, many of whom are families with young children.

With beautiful streaming colors and exotic aromas, the Festival Village is an active marketplace of food and craft booths. The vendors are hand picked to provide an exciting array of international cuisine and arts. The 2003 Festival Village will be offering foods, crafts and art from such places as Indonesia, West Africa, Jamaica, Ethiopia and India.

For our 10th Annual Summer Solstice Celebration, the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival once again returns to the hills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains! Our wonderful venue, Frogtown, is located in the heart of historic and scenic gold rush county in beautiful Calaveras County. Frogtown is easily accessible from the Sacramento and Bay Area Airports.

Created through the collective efforts of the artists, vendors, staff, volunteers and ticket buyers, the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival is known for the positive, conscious, environmentally aware community it attracts. The Sierra Nevada World Music Festival is dedicated to nurturing a world family peacefully united in celebration of the universal spirit of music. Come celebrate with us!
