COVID-19 Update for Washington Acoustic Music Association (WAMA)

2020 Winlock Pickersfest Canceled

With COVID-19 still not under control and with all of the risks and uncertainties currently associated with this virus, the WAMA Board of Directors has unanimously voted to cancel 2020 Winlock Pickersfest. We apologize for any hardships or inconveniences this decision creates for anyone. Rest assured this was not an easy decision for us to make. But we feel under present circumstances this is the best course of action for us to take.

Please continue to be safe and check our website frequently for updates and WAMA news.

Yours Truly,

WAMA Board of Directors


Banjo Picking Chicken

20th Annual

Winlock Pickersfest

July 31st thru August 2, 2020

The festival includes instructional workshops, genre jams, open mics, plenty of pickin’ and grinnin’, and organized kids activities! Check out the Pickersfest website 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 jamming, fun, and camping begin on Thursday!

(Camping is allowed for up to 14 consecutive nights, so you can come early and stay until your next Festival, or beyond.)


The 2020 list of performers will include:

Pearl Django


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 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.

The Winlock Pickersfest is a labor of love created by a dedicated group of volunteers from the Washington Acoustic Music Association (WAMA). We hope you'll check this site often.
