Diverse lineups with six unique performance venues are the sole criteria at the heart of Pickathon. Pickathon collaborates with the community to maintain a low crowd density and enable families to thrive. Pickathon recruits the finest local food and drink purveyors in Oregon, yet it’s still the only large music festival to eliminate plastic and minimize single-use items. With no “normal” festival hassles like seeing sponsor signs or crowded venues, Pickathon works with the Pendarvis family to create an artistic festival ground.
