WinterWonderGrass Postpones Tahoe Event Due To Coronavirus
WinterWonderGrass Tahoe will postpone its 2020 event due to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak. The festival which was supposed to take place March 27 – 29 in Olympic Valley, California will reconvene with the same lineup April 9 – 11, 2021.
WinterWonderGrass released a statement on the postponement:
This is, unfortunately, the update we have done everything in our power to avoid, but our hand is now forced and the State of California is not supporting gatherings over 250 people at this time, following a directive issued by the Centers for Disease Control. We firmly believe that from each challenge and disappointment in life, a door opens to an unexpected and beautiful opportunity. The last thing we wanted to have to do is postpone WinterWonderGrass California and simply writing these words breaks my heart.
Our deepest thoughts go out to you—our fans, our community, the hardworking artists that will struggle with cancellations, the production and operations crews whom count on the work, our volunteers, vendors, sponsors, the locals who’ve been so supportive, and our core team which has been working on this event, non-stop, for nearly a near. We are all equally disappointed, mad, sad and frustrated.
When we booked this lineup 8 months ago, we dreamed of how the music would come out, the special sit-ins, the flow under the mountains. What kind of weather would Mother Nature bring? Who would we meet, reconnect with, laugh and love with? While these disappointments will need time to dissolve, and the work to postpone begins… we have great news.
We especially want to let our community of artists know that we will be here for them during these challenging times. Many of these dedicated musicians live gig to gig, on the road, pouring their souls into the show for us all to reap the rewards of. It’s going to be extra difficult for them, so while we may be upset about this inconvenience, let’s evoke our gratitude and find ways to spread the WinterWonderGrass love.
On to the good news!
