The GottaGetGon is a family-friendly folk music festival put on by the volunteers of the Pickin’ and Singin’ Gatherin’ every Memorial Day Weekend since 1970. It welcomes adults, teens, and children to enjoy a weekend sharing music and friendship.

There will be a Pot Luck Dinner Friday evening, a Barn Dance Saturday night with live band, lead by John Kirk and Trish Miller, caller. Join us for a Sunday Morning Gospel Sing and an a capella Sing Sunday at dusk. 

Four headliners will offer formal concerts and workshops. Everyone participates in casual jamming on the campgrounds throughout the festival. All concerts and workshops are under cover in 4H buildings and pavilions so it’s on, rain or shine.

Camping is encouraged and included with your all-weekend ticket.  Food concessions will be available. 

Purchase tickets online here.
