Music festival moving away

The 2014 Strawberry Fall Music Festival will take place after all, but not at Camp Mather and not over Labor Day weekend.

Festival founder Charlie Cran announced Wednesday that the festival will be held Thursday through Sunday, Sept. 11 to 15, at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley.

He said the venue offered him “sanctuary” after the City and County of San Francisco formally rejected his request for a fall permit at Camp Mather, where the festival has been held for more than 30 years.

In a three-page letter dated May 1, officials at the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department cited public safety concerns resulting from the 2013 Rim Fire and a questionable water supply from the current drought as primary reasons for denying the permit.

Susan Skalski, superintendent of the Stanislaus National Forest, also had voiced her concerns over public safety following the fire.

Cran said he has reached an agreement with officials at the Nevada County Fairgrounds and was traveling there today to sign the contract. Once the papers are signed, they will be forwarded to the U.S. Small Business Administration for review.
