One of our main purposes includes being a supportive sponsor for Wintergrass. Another is to involve as many members and acoustic music fans as we can to enjoy this fantastic festival with us.

If you’re going to the 2023 Wintergrass Music Festival, be sure to come to Suite 355 and visit with us, see some terrific Showcase Bands, and participate in some incredible jams. Check out our Showcase Band and jam schedule.

Admission to the Suite is FREE!

Our presence is intended to increase awareness regarding our association and as a non-profit organization, we are NOT charging admission. However, since this is a WAMA Fund Raising Event, donations are gratefully accepted. Hot Dogs, Beer, Wine, Water, and Snacks are available in the suite for a small donation. We will also be selling WAMA and Pickersfest T-Shirts, WAMA Pick Cards, and WAMA Stickers.

2023 Wintergrass Music Festival, Bellevue, WA

Wintergrass is a family-friendly Bluegrass music festival, with concerts and dances at 4 different stages. There are also music education programs for kids and adults, workshops, impromptu jams, and a chance to see and hear some great music.

While Wintergrass is primarily a Bluegrass music festival, you'll hear plenty of other styles of acoustic music including Gypsy jazz, Celtic music, Old-Time, Swedish polskas, and many more types of acoustic string music. Jam sessions reflect the diversity of styles with young and old alike participating in every nook and cranny. Don't be shy! Don't leave home without your instrument. The festival maintains a convenient Instrument Check room so that you can safely stash your instrument while you enjoy shows.

Wintergrass takes place at Hyatt Regency Hotel located at 900 Bellevue Way NE in Bellevue, WA. The Hyatt has plenty of 24 hour jamming space and room for 4 stages all under one roof. Rooms at the Hyatt generally sell out months in advance, and they are selling out earlier and earlier each year. Click HERE for more info.
