Changes to Walnut Valley Festival

Organizers of the 49th Walnut Valley Festival have announced a number of measures designed to provide for a safe hybrid festival this September. After a vaccination campaign in August, the festival will provide for those who wish to attend in person, but also provide live streaming for those who would rather not venture onto grounds. Vaccinated festival-goers will also be able to get a special “I Pick Live Music” wristband and memorial pick at the Information Booth once on grounds.
On-site COVID vaccination clinics will be offered on the following dates:
· Saturday, August 21, 9am-Noon, at Bob’s Place, 920 Main St, Winfield, KS
· Saturday, August 28, 10am-2pm, at the Winfield Fairgrounds, Barn 4 (during festival Pre-Lineup)
On both occasions, organizers will draw winners from those receiving the vaccine, and provide festival-related merch including festival chairs, commemorative mugs, WVF yard signs, and other goodies. The vaccine is free, you need not be a resident of Cowley County to take part, but you must bring a valid ID, and your insurance card (if you have one).
