Pickersfest Picking Chicken



August 02 - 04, 2024

2023 Winlock Pickersfest


Pickersfest Guitar Workshop

Seasoned festival attendees know that workshops are of great value. Whether you are learning a new instrument or just wanting to sit in a small group with one of your favorite performers, workshops offer an opportunity to learn up close from professional musicians. And best of all, these classes are free with festival admission. The hardest part is deciding which workshop to attend.

If you'd like to attend a workshop, please meet at the covered picnic area by the kitchen (behind the audience area). Once we know how many attendees there are, each group will head for designated areas.
