Bio: There is a long tradition of the bohemian laborer that works during the day to support his family, then comes home at night to write songs, and often those songs are about his struggle.

    Chinook Fest 2014 Chinook Fest is an event featuring art, food vendors, camping, and (most importantly) 28 of the finest Roots-Rock, Blues, Americana, Country, and Folk artists around. This year's festival will be held September 12th - September 14th at Jim Sprick Community Park; a rustic retreat on the banks of the Naches River, nestled in the scenic Central Washington Cascades. Partnering with environmentally sensitive companies like Liberty Bottleworks, Chinook Fest strives to be as green as possible in order to maintain the surrounding beauty. In fact, Chinook Fest's relationship with the Nile Valley/Yakima community and its sponsors is what makes this festival such a uniquely enjoyable experience for both festival goers and performers. We look forward to continuing our support of authentic Americana and Roots Rock music as we expand both the reach and response of Chinook Fest. Thank you for your help! NOTE THAT FRIDAY AND SATURDAY ARE 21+. SUNDAY IS ALL AGES AND FAMILY FRIENDLY. CHILDREN 12 AND YOUNGER GET IN FREE. TENT CAMPING IS INCLUDED WITH THE PURCHASE OF A WEEKEND PASS. LIMITED RESERVED CAMPING SITES AVAILABLE AT WWW.CHINOOKFEST.COM
