I won’t normally post events that are already sold out, but if you’re interested, it’s worth putting it on your calendar for next year. I’ve never been, but my friend Danielle goes every year with her family and has a blast.
The Strawberry Music Festival is held Labor Day and Memorial Day weekends at Camp Mather, just outside Yosemite National Park. Most people camp for the weekend, enjoying a full range of kids programs like dance workshops, arts & crafts, music and storytelling. It sounds a little like a tamer Burning Man in a more hospitable natural environment. Or not.
Most people come for the 40+ musical groups performing over four days, plus informal jam sessions.
And there are showers, so not everyone camping will be stinky.
