The Guitarfish Music Festival takes place at Cisco Grove Campground in Cisco Grove, CA, on the lovely Yuba River just off Interstate 80 in the Donner Summit area—about 30 mins West of Truckee. The campground is a nature lover’s paradise with breathtaking views, hiking, fishing, climbing, swimming, bird watching and more. The campsites each have their own water, electric, and RV hookups, along with picnic tables and freestanding barbeques. All of the sites are just a short distance from the music stages and vendor areas, making it fun and convenient for all overnight campers and concertgoers. There is a huge playground for the kids. [Those under 12 get in FREE!] This is the lushest location of any significant festival in the region.
With its host of jammin’ bands, Guitarfish will transform Cisco Grove into Cisco Groove, and the All-Starfish Guitarmageddon will be the exclamation point on the entire affair!
