With very a heavy heart, SNWMF BNVL LLC must announce the cancellation of Sierra Nevada World Music Festival 2024, June 21-23, at the Mendocino County Fairgrounds, Boonville, CA.

Last year, the SNWMF team beautifully and successfully revitalized the festival after a 5 year hiatus. We planned and have been diligently working towards presenting another magical weekend this year. This became impossible due to extreme financial challenges.

We've explored all options but the decision has been made that we are unable to proceed knowing we will be unable to deliver the usual high quality event which you deserve.

We cannot apologize enough for this turn of events or the late notice. We worked very hard to avoid a cancellation but must face the harsh economic realities. SNWMF cannot express our gratitude and love to everyone who has supported SNWMF over the past 30 years.

With regret, love & respect
Gretchen Franz Smith for
