Pickin’ on the Plains   June 4 – 6, 2021


In response to the COVID19 pandemic risk, the 25th annual festival has been postponed to the first weekend of June 2021.  The new dates will be June 4, 5 & 6 of 2021.  Tickets purchased for the festival for this year will still be valid in 2021.  Camping reservations have been transferred to the new dates.  Refunds will be offered on both tickets and camping.


Held annually at the Thomas County Fair Grounds in Colby, Kansas, Pickin’ on the Plains is a long-standing, premium bluegrass festival featuring top tier national acts with ticket prices that are unbeatable. Held outdoors under a huge water-misted canopy, you will enjoy the family-friendly, relaxed atmosphere with superb craft and food vendors, jamming and kids crafts and games right on the grounds. Electric, full-service and dry camping are available on site with extra remote camping within 2 miles.   Lasting friendships are formed and families reunite annually at this fun event. See why so many travel far and wide to keep this at the top of their “gotta’ be there” activities!
