Pickathon runs August 5-7. Could be a good reason to go down and visit our neighbors to the South. Fact: I have never had a bad time in Portland. See more info here.

Experience the 13th Annual Pickathon Indie Roots Music Festival at the amazing 80 Acre festival grounds of Pendarvis Farm on Mt Scott near Portland, OR.
