Join us Saturday, August 19th, 2017, 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.
Our stellar line-up highlights some of the best of the Pacific Northwest beginning at 11:00am and continuing after sunset (artist links to websites):
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, Childrens’ 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).
TICKETS and PARKING:
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!
