Knee-slappin’ Bluegrass Music at Pickin’ on the Plains in Colby

Tap your toes to live bluegrass music or pick your own banjo or guitar at Pickin’ on the Plains Bluegrass and Folk Festival July 20-22 in Colby. This event is in harmony with the long-running Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, just on a slightly smaller scale. In fact, Pickin’ on the Plains began when music enthusiasts decided to bring the music, fun and fellowship they experienced at the Winfield event to the Western High Plains of Kansas nearly 20 years ago. And what a festival it has become!

And true Festival aficionados pack their instruments and sleeping bags since camping is encouraged on the grounds.
