The 2023 Tumbleweed Festival: September 1-3, 2023.
The chosen theme for 2023 is "GOOD TIMES."
Logo Contest entries were due back in February and the logo for 2023 has been selected. Many other deadlines have passed.

The 2022 Tumbleweed Festival: The live festival happened September 2-4, but the virtual festival still is available!
Our chosen theme of “Dear Friends” was considered by one and all to perfectly encapsulate this joy, and we give our great thanks to Anne Schur for suggesting it!
And still available: The 2021 Tumbleweed Festival (a virtual festival) !
Over 100 performances, dozens of workshops, concerts, and a contra dance, Here!
The 2021 Festival was the 25th annual Tumbleweed - and we chose the theme "Silver Linings." As always, the theme is the point of inspiration for the Jane Titland Memorial Songwriting Contest, and serves as the unifying element for the Sunday "Theme" Concert.
For 2021 we made the decision to be almost entirely virtual once again, although we did host a free LIVE concert in Richland’s Howard Amon Park on Saturday, August 21st. That concert featured the three Tumbleweed Festival headline acts, and was recorded live to be offered online as the traditional Saturday Night concert for the 2021 virtual festival.
