This is going to be another FANTASTIC weekend that you won’t want to miss!

WOW!!! Check out the GREAT Raffle for 2018!!


The 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 jammin’ and camping begins 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 of 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. WAMA hosts events throughout the year, so we hope you’ll check the site to see the impressive display of music events offered throughout the year.

Bands interested in being considered for the 2019 festival may submit music samples and band press kit (including band bios and photos) by December 31, 2018.  Submit them to WAMA at info@wamamusic.com .
