Sierra Nevada World Music Festival was conceived in Riverfront Park, in the town of Marysville, California, kicking off in 1994. A venue change in 2001 saw the festival move to the Calaveras County Fairgrounds in Angels Camp CA, also known as Frogtown. The festival took place in these golden hills of the Gold Country until 2006 when we found our new home in Mendocino. The move to Mendocino took the festival to a new level with an incredibly supportive community.
