This Pin Sticks Fascists

With the help of our friends Nathan Poppe of Poppe Pins and Chris Crockett of Eastside Design Co., we created an enamel pin to help raise funds for the 2017 festival. Nathan came up with the design at Chimera in Tulsa on the way back from Folk Alliance International. As luck turns out, we have some leftover for those who weren't able to purchase them in July! They're $10 each and all profits go toward funding Woody Guthrie Folk Festival. You can order yours from us via PayPal!

Memorial Bricks


Order a Memorial Brick to have it placed at the statue of Woody Guthrie in Okemah by the start of this year's festival. Please visit the Memorial Brick page for details.

In Memory of Lou Johnson

WoodyFest is saddened by the passing on Nov. 8, 2016 of Lou Johnson - owner of Lou's Rocky Road Tavern in Okemah, OK. Lou's has been an important part of WoodyFest since the beginning - hosting many open mics as well as the annual Mary Jo's Pancake Breakfast. Our sincere condolences to Lou's many friends and family.

The family has stated that they would be pleased if those wanting to donate in Lou’s memory would make a donation to WoodyFest. The festival was near and dear to Lou. Donations can be made via PayPal on our Friends Of The Festival Page. If donating via PayPal please write “In Memory of Lou Johnson” where it says Add Special Instructions to the Seller so that we can send an acknowledgment to the family.

Details regarding services for Lou can be found on the Parks Brothers Funeral Home website.
