Important information about Festival ticketing:

Ticket-holder bears all risks, including cancellation of the event, or any parts of the event, due to inclement or dangerous weather, fire, smoke or other Acts of God. Sisters Folk Festival Inc reserves the right to cancel the event, or any parts of the event, in circumstances we deem unsafe for ticket-holders, musicians and festival attendees. In case of such a cancellation, tickets will not be refunded.

  • Tickets are refundable until June 1, less a $10 per ticket handling charge.  After June 1 there are no refunds.
  • Ticket-holders MUST have their scanable ticket to receive their wristband. You can either print it out or we can scan it from your phone.
  • Event pass does not guarantee ticket-holder a seat at any venue or at any particular performance. The festival has multiple stages, but no one venue can accommodate all ticket-holders. Occasionally a venue will be filled to capacity.
  • You will need to present your scanable ticket(s) at General Check-In at the festival to exchange it for your all-event wristband. All ticket-holders must come to the General Check-In tent, where our volunteers will put on your wristbands, giving you access to all our venues.
  • Wristbands are non-transferable and non-replaceable.
  • Sisters Folk Festival is a rain-or-shine, hot-or-cold event.
  • There are no single-day tickets for Friday or Saturday of the festival. Single-day tickets for Sunday will be put on sale at a later date.
  • You will receive a link to a scanable ticket which you will need to present to receive your all-event wristband. If you lose or do not receive your ticket(s), please contact us BEFORE August 1 for a re-issue.
  • If you sell or give your pass(es) to someone else, they must have either the printed, scanable ticket(s) or the .pdf file of the ticket(s) that was emailed to you to pick up their wristbands.
  • Youth 5 and under do not need a ticket, but they must sit in your lap and not occupy a seat.
