The popular Strawberry Music Festival returns to Tuolumne County next Thursday through Labor Day weekend.
Jodi Barnett, Operations Manager and Spokesperson for the Strawberry Music Festival, was Friday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
The 35th annual event will be held at the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians Westside property on the edge of Tuolumne City, from Thursday September 1st through Monday September 5th.
For many years, the popular festival was staged at Camp Mather, but it was displaced after the 2013 Rim Fire. It has also been held at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley.
“Strawberry Music Festival is a locally based year-round business, based in Jamestown” Barnett said. “It was important for us to find a local location. The return of the festival to Tuolumne County has been and is a benefit to the entire area from Sonora to Tuolumne City and beyond”.
The festival will be set up over 100 acres on the 175 acre piece of property and could host up to an estimated 5,600 guests.
Barnett said, “If you’ve never been a part of the festival, this Labor Day weekend will be a great time to see what we are all about. The Strawberry Music Festival is a wonderful community, which also just happens to feature great music.”
