KLAMATH FOLK FESTIVAL:
Typically scheduled in later August, the Klamath Folk Festival is a larger-scaled community event featuring a combination of local and regional music talent with an anchor headlining act. The event features two stages and has been held at the Ross Ragland Theater in recent years. The event is also our primary annual fundraising effort, with proceeds from ticket sales being directly reinvested in our various other program and related efforts.
Scheduled on the first and Third Thursdays of January - April at Mia & Pia's Pizzeria and Brewhouse from 6-8pm, our Showcase Series is a direct beneficiary of proceeds from the Klamath Folk Festival. Open to all ages and free admission, the program features up to two area acts per evening for a 45 to 60 minute set each. In addition to featuring established regional talent, the program is designed to create opportunities for developing acts ready to take the next step with their music and public performances. The goal is also to introduce local audiences to new and up and coming talent in our region.
