hey, we all know our local free fest, and maybe we think it's lame, but someone else might be traveling through and need a day off the road, or think the idea is great.
So: what a great free fest you know of? Be sure to list location.

In California
Parkland bluegrass festival. the weekend after mother's day. Its full of rednecks, ranchers, and republicans, but everyone is real nice after theyve had a beer or five. Some great acts each year.

HEMPFEST! In Seattle, usually around the third weekend of August. There are many other hempfests in other cities, too. I know there are some in Eugene and Portland, Oregon, and even one in my little town of Moscow Idaho (it's usually around 4/20).

BARTER FAIRS are all over the northwest. See www.barterfair.org for current info & dates. One of my favorites is in Tonasket, WA in October, it's called the Okanogan Family Faire.
