Attracting local residents and regional visitors alike, the event is held every spring to foster an understanding and appreciation of traditional Arizona music and culture through experiential learning, performances and workshops.

The festival takes place at the city’s beautiful Historic Sahuaro Ranch, located at 9802 N. 59th Ave., and at Glendale Main Public Library, 5959 W. Brown St. The free event features folk and bluegrass music performed by more than 400 musicians, live cowboy poetry and authentic storytelling, with five stages of music throughout both Saturday and Sunday. In addition, three workshop areas will invite attendees to learn to play spoons, saws, ukuleles, harmonicas, swing guitar, pennywhistle, jug band, skiffle music, autoharps and more! 2019-20 Festival Season Dates: Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020 Sunday, March 1, 2020 10:00am – 5:00pm Each Day Free Admission
