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 pickers’ fest is attended by many great pickers from all over the Pacific Northwest. This fantastic festival is put on by an all-volunteer staff, so the price of admission is remarkably inexpensive.

Food is prepared and catered by the Winlock Park Board who collect the proceeds for this service and is available from noon on Friday through Sunday breakfast.
