In lieu of a physical festival this year, the Woody Guthrie Coalition has made the decision to host a free virtual festival the week of Woody Guthrie’s birthday, July 14, 2020.

The celebration of the acclaimed singer, songwriter, poet, & activist will commemorate Guthrie’s 108th birthday with musical performances by artists inspired & influenced by Woody as well as educational seminars.

We hope this will provide the opportunity for all to enjoy the festival community in a safe & protected environment.

Please stay tuned for more details. Love & light to all.

Change the way you talk and think
Change the tubes and change the tires
Change the things your heart desires
Change your makeup change your curl
Change the ways of this changing world
Change the ways of this changing world
