We're Under the Trees Again in 2022!

It’s 2022 and the Shawano Folk Music Festival is back! 

The 2022 artists include Pat Wiley; Josh White, Jr; Anne Hills; Wade Fernandez; Indigie Femme; The Bounding Main; Art Stevenson and High Water; and the Crystal River Trio.  Also appearing:  Jahmes Tony Finlayson, Fox and Branch, Cory Arndt, Zander Raymakers, and Carolyn Carter. Mark your calendars for August 12-14, aim your car towards Mielke Park in Shawano, and get ready for a great weekend. 

Note: Josh White, Jr. will not be able to appear at the 2022 Festival. He needed to cancel for personal reasons.  We share your disappointment, and are working to update our lineup to accomodate his needs. We'll keep you informed as  things change.

We don’t want anyone to get sick by enjoying live music. We’re crossing our fingers, hoping COVID-19 allows the Festival to happen again with live music in the park. We’ll follow CDC and Wisconsin Department of Health guidelines in place at the time. Join us in crossing fingers and toes.

Stay healthy and keep singing.

We’re coming back singing, and we hope you’ll all join us under the trees.

Help Wanted!
We're looking for a few special volunteers. Could it be you?  These volunteer positions come with no pay, great friends, a lot of satisfaction, a T-shirt and a full weekend pass so you can hear lots of great music. Who could ask for more?
  • Volunteer Coordinator
    This person will fill the Festival weekend work schedule, scheduling people to work at the Gates, Raffle table, Hospitality, Grounds, etc. You can do the work from home, making phone calls and working through emails, any time between now and August. We'll supply a blank schedule and a long list of names and numbers (many of the workers are repeats, doing the same job year after year). By the time the Festival comes along, your work is pretty much done. It's a good job for someone who enjoys talking to people
  • Gates Coordinator
This person supervises the people working at the gates during the Festival (Saturday and Sunday during the day). Work involves making sure the Gates workers have the simple training and supplies they need, and answering questions that may arise - from the workers or attendees. Lots of time to listen to music in between tasks!
Give us a call or email to find out more.

We've got a new phone number this year! 
Please change it in your contact lists.
