Winlock Pickers' Festival includes instructional workshops, open mics, plenty of pickin' and grinnin', and organized kids activities! Check out the rest of the site to see details about the live bands, the workshop schedule, camping details, ticket info, links, and more.
The festival officially starts on Friday, but the jamming and camping begin on Thursday!
Nestled in a beautifully wooded area, Winolequa Park is conveniently located close to Interstate 5. Less than 2 hour's drive south of Seattle and an hour north of Portland, this gem of a pickers' fest is within close driving distance for plenty of great pickers who show up every year for it. And since the festival is put on by an all-volunteer staff, the price of admission is remarkably inexpensive.
Food is available on the premises from the Winlock Park Board starting at noon on Friday through Sunday Breakfast.
The Winlock Pickers' Fest is a labor of love created by a dedicated group of volunteers from the Washington Acoustic Music Association (WAMA) and co-sponsored by the Winlock Park Board.
The 2019 list of performers will include:
- Richard Smith
- The Portland Radio Ponies
- Runaway Train
- The Cowchips

Cost is $15 per day or $25 per weekend per person. (WAMA members get a discount admission.)
