Check out the lineup so far for 2014...



The Festival happens the weekend after Labor Day
every year.
2014's dates are September 5, 6 & 7.

Many greats have graced the stage since the initial Festival in 1995, including Ian Tyson, Tim O'Brien, Jesse Winchester, Natalie MacMaster, Chris Smither, Dave Carter, The Waybacks, John Gorka, Ruthie Foster, The Waifs, The Wailin' Jennys and more.

The Festival is held every year in September, the weekend after Labor Day, in beautiful Sisters, Oregon. The Festival is home to nine stages, including an 800-seat venue at the Village Green Park in downtown Sisters, and 900 seats at Sisters Art Works.

Sisters is located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range and the Three Sisters Wilderness Area, the community of Sisters is a wonderful place to live and visit. Below are some links of interest for anyone who is thinking about coming out for the Festival. Outdoor recreational opportunities in and around Sisters are endless, with mountains, rivers and lakes at your back door. Bike or ride horseback on the many beautiful mountain trails, or golf at any number of first-rate courses. Gift, home & garden, clothing and antique shops abound for the shopper in your group, or just relax and enjoy the clean air and incredible mountain views. There is truly something for everyone in Sisters.


Food & Drink are available at the Village Green and Sisters Art Works, as well as most of our other venues. Festivalgoers are welcome to bring their food (either purchased from one of our food vendors or from home) into the venue. Beer and wine must remain in designated areas. There are also many great restaurants along the walking routes between stages. Parking (including handicap-accessible parking) is available near all the venues. Check out the map below to find a central location to park your car. Oh, and by the way, parking is still free in Sisters (though some areas are now back-in diagonal parking only). If you need additional help, check with the Will Call desk for assistance. Seating in all venues is provided. There is no need to bring your own chairs.

Venue information, schedules and performer updates will be available soon!
