Welcome

Winlock Pickers at Winolequa Park

2020 Winlock Pickersfest
July 31st - August 2nd, 2020

Don't Miss it!

If you attended Pickersfest '19, you already know what an awesome festival it was. If you missed it, please accept our heartfelt sympathy. But all is not lost! We are already hard at work planning for next year's music festival and believe it or not, we are on the fast track of making the next festival even better! Mark your calendars now for July 31st through August 2nd, 2020.

Note: The park only has a few picnic tables near the stage. We suggest you bring your own comfortable lawn chair for your best seating.

New Genre Jams At 2019 Winlock Pickersfest!

The 2019 festival included three new genre jam sessions on Friday afternoon. Here are descriptions of these jams:


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 hours drive south of Seattle and an hour north of Portland, this gem of a Pickersfest 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 Pickersfest 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 2020 festival may submit music samples and band press kit
(including band bio, band photo, and a link to your website or social media site) by December 31, 2019.
Submit Your band info to WAMA at info@wamamusic.com .
