The Yakima Folklife Association partnered with the Yakima Farmers Market in downtown Yakima on Sundays June - September, providing live music in a Jam/song circle format. 
Folklife Volunteers and friends entertain the Farmers Market attendees and all musicians are welcome to come and play. When the market has regularly scheduled music the circle plays from 9-12noon, otherwise the song circle plays from 12-2pm.


Raffle tickets are available to win a Martin Backpacker Guitar, donated by Taylor Music, a Kala Ukulele donated by Ted Brown Music, and Gift Baskets. Tickets are: $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00.


You can purchase tickets at the Folklife Booth each Sunday at the Yakima Farmers Market or at the Festival.


There are also Folklife hats, Vintage T-shirts, Buttons, and magnets. All the proceeds go to support the Free Festival each July.

Come down to the Farmers Market and support the Folklife Festival.  If you play an instrument come and join in!
