Willow is old and new family, friends, and love.
53 years and counting...
The festival started in 1968, because The Willow United Methodist Church wanted a new way to raise money. Something beyond the chicken suppers, and bake sales. Something that was bigger, and more fun, and brought more people together. A festival of music.
It started as a one day event, and expanded to offer camping and music in a one of a kind environment.
We’re all here to visit, have fun, and play and listen to music.
