Walla Walla Music Fest – June 2-4, 2023

Todd Hoffman, whose gold-mining story was featured on the Discovery-channel show “Gold Rush,” will perform along with the Sandy Mule Band of Sandy, Ore., at the Walla Walla Music Fest June 2-4 at the Walla Walla Fairgrounds. Also added to the lineup is country rap group Moonshine Bandits. The event will honor and support military veterans, who will be admitted free with ID.

The three days of music will feature 15 bands including Vegas McGraw, Cash’d Out, Hot Rod Trio, Waylon Nihipali, Colorblind, Countrified, Cale Moon, the Coyote Kings, Froghollow, and the Eagles tribute band Fastlane.

But that’s not all. This festival will showcase hot rods, rat rods, trucks and motorcycles, with judging and awards on Saturday. There will also be awards for best-looking ink (tattoos). There’ll be food trucks, beer and wine available.

Early-bird online prices range from a one-day student pass for $15 to a three-day adult pass for $85. Kids 12 and under will be admitted free with an adult.

Proceeds of the festival will support veterans through a local nonprofit group called Volunteers Love Serving Veterans (VLSV). You’re invited to bring a copy of a veteran’s photo to post on the “Wall of Honor.”
