There are so many ways to be part of our Worldfest community!

California WorldFest is presented by The Center for the Arts, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization in Grass Valley, promoting and presenting music/literary/visual arts events & youth programming for the enrichment of our community.


Consider making a donation to keep our festival thriving

Last year we had outstanding artists and wonderful programs during the day; at the same time the 105 degree heatwave was hard on all of us. Our costs have dramatically increased for the staging, the venue, and production, while ticket sales have not returned to pre-COVID times.


Join our marketplace of international and local artisans!

The artisans are set up outdoors between stages. Electricity is available. This is a juried show with up to 45 artisans displaying their wares. Handmade arts and crafts are welcome as well as imported items. In your submission please include:

Marketplace hours are:

Thursday:  4pm-10pm
Friday & Saturday: 9am-11pm
Sunday: 9am-10pm

Applications are not open yet.

Celebrate, teach, learn, grow, and play with us at WorldFest Workshops!

California WorldFest hosts a wide variety of free workshops in the areas of yoga, movement, music, meditation, healing arts, and more! These workshops add to the WorldFest experience by engaging participants in hands-on learning, playing and practicing. In most workshops the leaders provide instruments or props, and you are always welcome to bring your own!

Be part of the performance at WorldFest!

This street-style, informal performance is a wonderful way to share your craft and create a welcoming environment at the festival! Buskers are scheduled at the entrance to the festival on the Welcome Stage and are the first musical performance that patrons get to interact with upon arriving at the festival.
