Three Rivers Folklife Society has put on the Tumbleweed Music Festival every year and on August 29, 30 and 31 they will be celebrating their 18th 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 workshps 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 festival will start on Friday evening, August 29 with a free concert featuring local young musicians. Saturday, August 30 and Sunday, August 31 will be filled with free acoustic music (Evening events will be by admission.) Relax in your lawn chair or on a blanket as you enjoy performances on four outdoor stages, or 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.
This year 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.
