Fairgrounds Map


If you search for our festival with your GPS, you may get directed to our year-round office on Main Street in beautiful downtown Winfield. The festival itself is about 3/4ths of a mile west of downtown. Take 9th Avenue (US 160) west from downtown Winfield. The main entry gate is the western of the two entrances. The eastern entrance is for re-entry only (after you’ve gotten wristbands).
