Banjo Picking Chicken

20th Annual

Winlock Pickersfest

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.)

Pearl Django

(Keep checking this page and the Pickersfest website for updates on the 2020 lineup)


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.

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.

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.
