40 Acts, 11 Stages: Sisters Art Folk Festival, Sept. 7-9

Dar Williams, Joe Purdy and The Dustbowl Revival are just a few of the artists set to perform at the 2018 Sisters Folk Festival, Sept. 7-9 (see complete list below). BendBroadband is not only a premier sponsor of this amazing festival but we also enjoy the relaxing melodies of Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, Funk and more in Sisters.

Established in 1995, the Sisters Folk Festival is nationally known and provides audience members a chance to be up-close and personal with some of the finest folk artists. The festival deemed one of the best in the country is an annual three-day music festival and is always the weekend after Labor Day.

The festival is held at 11 venues throughout Sisters, including a 900-seat venue at the Village Green Park in downtown, and 1,100 seats at Sisters Art Works. The venues are all within a 10-minute walk of each other.

Weekend passes for the 2018 Festival are $150 for adults and $50 for those 18 and under. Tickets are available here.  Sunday-only passes are available for $65 for adults and $35 for youth 18 and under and are on sale here. There will be no advance sales after Aug. 31.
