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.
