3RFS is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, founded in 1988, serving the folk community near the confluence of the Yakima, Snake and Columbia rivers in SE Washington state (map)

We present concerts, coffeehouses, contra dances, song circles, and the annual Tumbleweed Music Festival (In its 23rd year in 2019.)

In light of Corona Virus news, the Three Rivers Folklife Society's Board of Directors has decided it is in the best interest of our members to cancel all our remaining events scheduled for April 2020. We hope to reschedule some of these for later.
