WINFIELD, Kansas – Thousands of people have packed the Winfield fairgrounds for one of the biggest music events of the year in Kansas.
The Walnut Valley Festival National Flatpicking Championships starts early Thursday morning.
Enthusiasts have been camping out for nearly a month to get ready for the pickers paradise.
The music starts with an autoharp competition Thursday. There’s nearly nonstop music until the last banjo string is picked Sunday afternoon.
Musicians will play on several stages plus you can expect to hear music coming from many of the campsites and the parking lot throughout the event.
