2024 WAMA Wintergrass Ad

Besides the Winlock Pickersfest, the WAMA Hospitality Suite is one of our main annual fundraising events.

We use the WAMA Hospitality Suite to let people know who we are and what we do as an organization. With our showcase bands, workshops, and jams, we promote WAMA and American Acoustic Music in many ways. One of our purposes for having the suite at this festival includes being a supportive sponsor for Wintergrass. Another is to involve as many of our members and other acoustic music fans as we can to enjoy this fantastic festival with us.

If you're NOT a member of WAMA, we hope you will consider JOINING WAMA and helping us fulfill our mission.

Admission to the WAMA Suite is FREE for all Wintergrass attendees!!
