This Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 4-6, the 25th annual Four Corners Folk Festival will take place on beautiful Reservoir Hill Park in downtown Pagosa Springs.

Thousands of people of all ages will once again converge from all around the country for three days of live performances, workshops, campground jams and a children’s program that provide the backbone of the popular, music-filled weekend. 

Nationally and internationally acclaimed performers slated for 2020 include Lucinda Williams, Rising Appalachia, Tim O’Brien Band, Carrie Rodriguez, Ron Artis II, Way Down Wanderers, Old Salt Union, Jig Jam, Bill Miller, AJ Lee and Blue Summit, Bowregard, Seth Walker, Sierra Ferrell, Caitlin Cannon and more!

The stellar music featured on the festival stages is most commonly labeled Americana, but includes a variety of influences — folk rock, bluegrass, Celtic, newgrass, alt-country, rockabilly, blues and everything in between.

As the great Louis Armstrong once said, “All music is folk music. I ain’t never heard no horse sing a song.”

Rising above downtown from its prime central location, Reservoir Hill Park provides outstanding campsites located in the 140-acre ponderosa pine forest, just a short walk from the main venue. Many festival-goers choose to stay at one of Pagosa’s many lodging establishments, taking advantage of the free shuttle service up and down Reservoir Hill during the show throughout the weekend.

Campground jam sessions are a regular feature and a highlight for many attendees of the festival, and go on all day and well into the night. Other activities include late-night performances on Friday and Saturday, music workshops, a food court, beer and wine garden and vendor expo. 

The large performance tent provides shelter for the stage and seating for more than 1,300 people, plus there is ample room in the meadow outside the tent to set up tarps and low chairs. All seating is general admission, except for Festival Patron tickets, which include food and beverages and a special seating area under the tent.

The Four Corners Folk Festival is an extremely family-friendly event, offering free admission to children 12 and under (accompanied by an adult), as well as a free children’s program with arts and crafts, family entertainment, special musical performances and workshops for aspiring young musicians and their families.
