In just a couple of short months, the 14th annual Four Corners Folk Festival will take place on Reservoir Hill Park in Pagosa Springs.
One of the most exciting music festivals in the western U.S., features an outstanding lineup that will entertain music lovers from all over the country in one of the most beautiful locations in Colorado. Reservoir Hill Park overlooks downtown Pagosa Springs and the San Juan Mountains, with easy access to the hot springs and excellent fishing in the San Juan River.
This year’s lineup features Tim O’Brien, the subdudes, Darrell Scott, Eddie From Ohio, Sara Watkins, The Bills, The Infamous Stringdusters, The Greencards, Marc Atkinson Trio, The Wiyos, Anne and Pete Sibley, the Quebe Sisters, Shannon Whitworth and the Russ Barenberg Trio. The music takes place on the main stage, with seating for 1100+ under the big tent, plus the smaller, more intimate acoustic and late night stages.
Admission to the festival is free for kids 12 and under, and there is a free kids program with entertainment (juggling, magic and music), workshops, arts and crafts and face painting. The festival venue will have food and arts & crafts vendors plus a beer garden.
The festival is known among regional musicians for its picking scene. The campgrounds fill with fans who pick until the early morning hours, creating a fun and festival atmosphere for all.
Tickets to the Four Corners Folk Festival are on sale at Moonlight Books downtown and at ReSport in the Country Center in the Pagosa Lakes area. Tickets and additional information are also available online at www.folkwest.com or by calling (877) 472-4672.
The festival is a great reason to return to Pagosa Springs at the end of summer, when the days are warm and the nights are cool — and the music is epic.
