About the Event
Presented by SFF, Big Ponderoo is a brand-new festival celebrating the thriving music and arts community of Sisters, Oregon. The festival will bring Americana and bluegrass music to two stages: Sisters Art Works and Three Creeks Brewing.
To kick off the festivities, Camp Ponderoo, an immersive bluegrass jam camp will be held at Sisters Art Works June 18 - 21.
Throughout the week the Ponderoo Arts Experience will take place with workshops and artist sessions that explore self-expression through the visual arts. The celebration will culminate with two days of live music June 24 & 25.
All are welcome to join us for a free community event on Friday, June 23 from 5:30 - 8:30 pm at Sisters Art Works. Attendees can enjoy live music from festival bands Never Come Down and Twisted Pine, food vendors, beer, wine and cider for purchase, art displays and interactive arts events.
Ticket price includes a complimentary commemorative 16 oz. pint cup for ticket holders 21+ ($10 value). This cup must be used when purchasing a beverage at either of the two festival bars located at Sisters Art Works and Three Creeks Brewing Facility; Big Ponderoo is working to reduce the waste generated at our events!
