Autumn Folk Festival

From September 10th - 12th, come to Sunrise for the annual autumn folk festival. The Sunrise Festival is quickly becoming one of the Northwest's top folk events, with its intimate performances from world-famous troubadours. Camping spots are still available at Sunrise campground, but they're going fast.

In addition to the intimate song sharing in the campground every evening during the festival, there'll be workshops, great food and craft vendors. Call Maria Thompson at 555-9011 for camping information. Call Ted Cashman (555-8122) to sign up for one of the workshops.
