• Thank You! See you in 2016!

    Sending out a big THANK YOU to everyone who made the 20th annual Kate Wolf Music Festival so memorable - the artists, volunteers, staff, vendors, production team, mother nature (for the most part) and especially all of YOU, the fans. It wouldn't be possible without your continued support all these years and we look forward to many more. Thank you all for making this year's show so off the hook!

"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.
