More About Strauss Festival

2017 marked the 30th anniversary of the annual performance of the Strauss Festival of Elk Grove, with a spectacular show entitled, “The Wonderful Island of Oz.”

The show was performed by dancers in breathtaking costumes playing the characters from the Wizard of Oz, including Dorothy, the good witch Glinda, the evil witch, the Wizard, and of course the Lion, Scarecrow and Tin Man. The familiar story line was told in dance accompanied by a live, 40-piece orchestra conducted by Maestro Jay DeWald.

The performances, as always, was FREE to the public and held July 27 – July 30 on Strauss Island in the Elk Grove Regional Park, 9950 Elk Grove Florin Rd, Elk Grove, CA 95624 (Map). For those who wished to park inside the park there was a $10 parking fee.

The promenade of costumed performers began nightly at 7:30 p.m. with the show starting at 8:15 p.m. The two-hour extravaganza concluded with a dazzling display of professional fireworks.

Free seating was available by placing blankets and lawn chairs the morning of each performance. Paid reserved seating was also available in the sturdy, upgraded bleachers provided this year.
