The Four Corners Folk Festival returns to Archuleta County for another extravagant weekend of great music over three days. The 2020 lineup brings over two dozen bands to the stage in Pagosa Springs.
Looking for some of the best folk, acoustic, and bluegrass music in Colorado, along with camping, food, and family fun? Make your way to Pagosa to celebrate the 25th annual Four Corners Folk Festival this September! It’s held Friday through Sunday, September 4th to 6th, 2020 at Reservoir Hill. It’s a rain or shine event, so come prepared for great folks music no matter the weather! Dress in layers this time of year in Pagosa Springs.
Food vendors will be on-site, with many of them serving breakfast and staying open into the night. Children 12 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Pets and alcohol are not permitted in the festival grounds. You’re welcome to bring lawn chairs into the event.
Camping is available on Reservoir Hill by reservation only. Campsites are chosen on a first-come, first-serve basis. Vehicle pass holders are welcome to by anytime after 11am on Thursday the day before the festival.
The 2020 lineup is better than ever, and you couldn’t pick a more beautiful setting than stunning Pagoda Springs for an outdoor music festival. Enjoy sitting beneath the pines, soaking in the mountain scenery, and listening to amazing music all day long and late into the night.
From September 4-6th, you can find some of the best music in the business down in Pagosa Springs. The folk festival hosts not only locally-recognized talent, but also some major national names in folk music and bluegrass. This year’s lineup includes performances from:
- Raising Appalachia
- Lucinda Williams
- Way Down Wanderers
- Seth Walker
- The Tim O’Brien Band
- And More!
One of the cool parts about the folk and bluegrass genre is the general willingness of artists to share their tips and tricks to help beginners and fans get a “behind the scenes” glimpse into their methods.
This festival features a workshop tent where players can bring their instruments to try and play along or test out different techniques, but it’s just as much fun to stop by even if you aren’t a musician, and simply sit and enjoy learning more about the music.
2020 workshops haven’t been announced yet, but last year’s workshops included a everything from songwriting to
soloing to vocal arrangements.
This festival is family-friendly, and to make the event accessible to folk fans of all ages, children 12 and under get free admission! There is also a special Four Corners Kids Tent where kid-friendly activities and programs will take place throughout the weekend.
Attending the late-night lineup is a whole different experience at the festival. Sitting under the stars in the cool mountain air and enjoying live music starting at 10 and 11 pm is not only an exciting experience in the moment, but is a great way to make lasting memories with your friends and loved ones!
Per-person camping tickets are available to festival-goers who have purchased the 3-day festival pass. Campsites are first-come, first-served, and are rustic with potable water and porta-johns available on-site.
There are many different ticket types available so you can attend one, two, or all three days of the festival, and you can choose to camp or stay off-site in Pagosa Springs. Prices vary; see ticket website for details.
