2020 or 2021 Tumbleweeds Music Festival.
From the 2020 (maybe also 2021) Tumbleweeds Music Festival, Three Rivers Folklife website:
"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tumbleweed Music Festival will not be a physical event this year. To ensure that our Tumbleweed community may still safely gather while remaining safe at home, this year we are transitioning to TMF Virtual 2020. This will be an online festival - we are currently working to create the exact form. Stay tuned (here, btw: http://www.3rfs.org/tmf.htm) for more information!"
Well, we are excited that the 2020 Tumbleweeds Music Festival is not officially canceled. We'll stay tuned also with the anticipation we might once again bring our kiddos and pets to the festival, wherever it might be...
Three Rivers Folklife Society has put on the Tumbleweed Music Festival every year the festival will be celebrating their 23rd or maybe 24th (who knows!) annual festival. Bring the whole family out and enjoy some wonderful music, scrumptious food, and a walk through the park looking at what the different vendors have to display in Richland Washington's Howard Amon Park. If you are interested there will also be workshops to attend, here is a list of the workshops offered. Every year we love to take a stroll through the park listening to the various musical groups and letting the kids play. We can’t go to the festival without getting a few Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches from one of the food vendors for the family to share, they are delicious.
The annual Tumbleweed Music Festival features over 100 free performances by musicians from throughout the Pacific Northwest. Listen, sing, and dance to folk, sea chanteys, bluegrass, blues, Celtic music, and more. Try your hand at the open mic stage, take part in a singalong, and attend one of the many free workshops. Enjoy a variety of food and craft vendors. Tumbleweed Music Festival is a family-friendly event with something for everyone. The Friday night concert, Sunday night concert, and all daytime activities are free! Admission is charged for the Saturday evening benefit concert and Sunday evening benefit contra dance.
More about the 23rd (or 24th?) Tumbleweed Music Festival
The festival will start on Friday evening, September 4 with a free concert featuring local young musicians. Make sure to bring your lawn chair or blanket so you can relax on the lawn while enjoying different performances.
You can also come inside to the air-conditioned Community Center to watch dance performances, participate in dance lessons, or take in a free music workshop. We also have an open mike stage. Several hours each day will be devoted to music and storytelling for kids.
Most years there are over one hundred acts offering traditional and contemporary folk, blues, bluegrass, ballet, gospel, Cajun, Celtic, Caribbean, classical, jazz, western and country, Middle Eastern, folklorico, old-time music, and dance, and more are expected. A songwriting contest and a participatory band scramble will showcase special talents and offer prizes for the adventurous.
