The Mendocino County Fairgrounds is located in Boonville, the heart of Anderson Valley. The pastoral beauty and colorful history of the region makes for a wonderful camping environment. We ask all campers to respect one another and this beautiful site.

Sierra Nevada World Music Festival strives to create a positive, respectful, conscious community of music lovers. We ask that all campers contribute to the community. Please recycle, respect your neighbors and take care of one another.

SNWMF is committed to the Re-Greening of Planet Earth.

No Dogs!!!

Camping is for 3-Day Ticket
Holders Only.
Keep in mind, no amplified music
is allowed in the campground.

Please make other arrangements for Thursday night as no vehicles will be accommodated on site.
Some alternatives are the Hendy Woods State Park or the Paul M. Dimmick Campground.

No skateboards, bicycles, scooters, etc, or motorized vehicles allowed on site (i.e. mopeds, ATVs, 4-wheelers).

SNWMF continues to support zero
waste tolerance and will be
recycling waste.

How SNWMF attendees can participate in greening:

Car Pool! Don't come alone! Save
gas and reduce carbon emissions.

Bring your own water bottle.
Leave no trace at your music listening spot or at your campsite.

Never put recycling in the trash.
It's better to leave it beside the can.
The green team will dispose of it soon.

When packing for SNWMF,
you should pack reusable to-go ware (plates, utensils, cups) and your own reusable, refillable water bottles.

Bring your own plate and utensils
when visiting the Food Vendors. Our sumptuous food vendors are prepared to serve on your own plate.

If not, start with the green can when you've finished your meal.
