The annual Kate Wolf Music Festival is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a great weekend with friends, family and lovers of fabulous music.

"I had a WONDERFUL time in every way at KW. I believe that it's the best, the single best, festival I've ever been to."— Gretchen Giles (longtime former editor of the North Bay Bohemian newspaper)

"I love the Kate Wolf Festival because it's so laid back and hip with real 'from the heart' music in a beautiful natural setting…it reminds me of the good ol' days. Hey! These ARE the good ol' days when you're at The Kate Wolf Festival..."— Charlie Musselwhite.
