What Happens at Tumbleweed?

The festival begins Friday evening with a free concert featuring local young musicians. Saturday and Sunday will be filled with free acoustic music (Evening events will be by admission.) Relax in your lawn chair or on a blanket as you enjoy performances on several outdoor stages, or come inside to the air-conditioned Community Center to watch dance performances, participate in dance lessons, or take in a free music workshop. We also have an open mike stage. And each day, several hours will be devoted to music and storytelling for kids. And don't forget the annual Tumbleweed Songwriting Contest!
