Join us Saturday, August 18th, 2018, for the best small-town country festival this side of the Cascades, celebrating “Americana Music”; blues, bluegrass,country, folk, jazz, and the roots we all share. We are working on our 2018 musical line-up and will post as soon as possible.

As of January 19th we are currently in the vetting process to schedule the 2018 band line-up.  We are an Americana festival.

The idyllic and rural community of Olalla [“oh-law-lah] has welcomed festival guests for over 25 years. We are located just a stones-throw away from Gig Harbor, Port Orchard, and within an easy 20 minute drive across the Narrows Bridge from Tacoma. Though the music is the “draw”; we create an extraordinary festival due to the extras that make this festival truly special including artisan vendors, wonderful food booths, Children’ activities, and a celebration of local pride for showcase a wide range of historical booths like quilters, spinners, and wood-crafters. This year, we will be offering a Beer and Wine Garden for the adults and Pony Rides for the kids!


For those coming from Poulsbo, Silverdale, and Bremerton, your drive will take you south on Highway 3 till you see the “Burley-Olalla” exit. Head east and follow signs to Olalla Valley Rd.

And for our Seattle friends, the concert venue presents a relaxing ferry ride on the Fauntleroy Ferry, via West Seattle. Or it takes less than an hour to drive around via the Narrows Bridge. Especially on a Saturday, there’s no traffic between you and our little slice of country-heaven on our local “field of dreams” (SKSLL ball fields). 


Discounted tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets, at the gate, as well as throughout various places of business in the South Kitsap / Gig Harbor area for “local discounts” [to be announced in July].  Also, the good folks at the South Kitsap Southern Little League allow us to host this event each year.  As a result, for a nominal $4 fee, our guests are able to park on-site within walking distance of the festivities.  All proceeds from parking goes directly to SKSLL and we appreciate their partnership year after year!
