Walnut Valley Festival

America's premiere bluegrass festival :: Winfield, Sept. 18 - 21

Cowley County Fairgrounds

You don't need to buy tickets to Winfield -- most everything you'd catch on the main stage will also go down in the 'free' campgrounds (No matter what, you'll have to pay the county's camping fee ~ $7/night). But the $70 for four days (and four long, long nights) of intensity is a helluva steal if you can swing it ... besides the pickin' contests and the full stage acts of the very best of our country's (and other's) talent, you'll get access to the food and crafts and company that only Winfield can boast. If you're not there, you're just not there. Better luck next time...Full performer schedule, directions and more at www.wvfest.comCamping info. We suggest taking your regular camp set-up (tent, sleeping bag, hatchet, flashlight/lantern, battery operated radio etc.) in addition to stable foods, like potatoes, onions, carrots, etc. Cans are preferred over bottles, and recycling is available. There is an (affordable) ice wagon that regularly attends to campsites, as well as several water and food stands just inside the main stage gate. Showers are also available in several locations for a small fee.Always take water-friendly gear, including a rain coat, because it ALWAYS rains at least one day during the festival.Taking at least $15 per person, per day (in addition to camping and ticket cost) in spending money is advisable. From our experience Cingular and Verizon cell phones work in the campgrounds. Sprint does not (though service is usually available 10 minutes away in the town of Winfield).Maps ::- The easiest (and likely quickest) way to Winfield is to take I-35 south (by way of 59 south -- that is, Iowa St. -- thru to the south side of Ottawa) all the way to exit 19 (south-east of Wichita, though you'll not go thru Wichita). At exit 19, take Hwy 160 east to Winfield. Before you get to town, you'll see many a sign to the festival.- Mapquest's (convoluted) driving directions from Lawrence to Winfield- The town of Winfield- The campgrounds- Stage area
