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.
