Just because you missed out on tickets to the main event doesn’t mean you have to miss the fun! The WinterWonderGrass party continues beyond the main stage with Grass After Dark.
After being sidelined by the Covid-19 pandemic, both WinterWonderGrass and its late-night afterparty — Grass After Dark — are back and ready to, well, party. As of press time, a very limited number of main event tickets were still available but by the time your eyes read this, they could very well be sold out.
But have no fear, Grass After Dark is here — and tickets are on sale now! The larger-than-ever Grass After Dark will feature live shows spread across five venues throughout the North Lake Tahoe region: Olympic Village Lodge, Moe’s Original BBQ, Plaza Bar, Alibi Ale Works, and Tahoe National Brewing Company.
On April 1, Fruition and Brothers Comatose will take over the Olympic Valley Lodge at Palisades Tahoe. Midnight North and Twisted Pine will play at Moe’s Original BBQ in Tahoe City. You’ll find Pickin’ on the Dead at the Palisades’ Plaza Bar, while Trout Steak Revival will appear at Alibi Ale Works in Truckee, and AJ Lee & Blue Summit will play at the Tahoe National Brewing Company in Tahoe City.
Grass After Dark’s late-night offerings on April 2 include The California Honeydrops and Larry Keel Experience at the Olympic Valley Lodge. Rapidgrass and Tyler Grant with Ace and Friends will take over Moe’s Original BBQ, while The Lil’ Smokies hit the Plaza Bar. Pixie and The Partygrass Boys will close down the night at Alibi Ale Works. The weekendlong party will wrap with Kitchen Dwellers and Town Mountain featured as Grass After Dark’s final performance on April 3, set to take place at the Olympic Valley Lodge.
Tickets to all separately ticketed late night shows are on sale now. Weekend passes, single day Friday and Saturday tickets, and VIP passes to the festival have completely sold out, but fans can still join the waitlist for re-sale tickets via the festival’s official fan-to-fan ticket exchange, powered by Lyte. Very limited Sunday-only tickets remain. Check out winterwondergrass.com for full details on showtimes and ticket pricing and availability.
The outdoor event takes place at the base of its hosting ski areas, with an open-air outdoor mainstage and three side stages, which are heated and covered. Every year, WinterWonderGrass hosts an on-site coffee bar and complimentary beer tasting. The event is also kid friendly, complete with a kids’ zone and free admission for kids 12 and under. Since its inception, the festival has continued to cultivate the relationship between nature, roots music, and community.
