Pickamania has evolved from its origins as a backyard party hosted in a garlic shed into an annual three-day festival celebrating the love of acoustic music of all genres. Now a project of the Sierra County Arts Council, Pickamania 2022 will feature a talented line-up of musicians performing at the outdoor pavilion at the Black Range Lodge in Kingston, New Mexico. This outdoor event offers a covid-safe environment for music and socializing.
Seating at the Black Range Lodge outdoor pavilion includes chairs on the grass, with scattered benches under shade trees. Feel free to bring your own picnic basket, camp chair and/or pop-up canopy. Kingston is generally 10 degrees cooler than Rio Grande valley communities, and parking is free. Black Range Vineyards will also be on hand to offer wine and beer for purchase.
Pickamania 2022 Performers will include Peter McLaughlin, Chris Brashear, Wil Maring, Robert Bowlin, the Hard Road Trio, The Big Ditch Crickets, Traditionales, and more.
Admissions are $15 for Friday, $30 for Saturday and $15 for Sunday, and will include a ticket for a fresh grilled cheeseburger (vegetarian options, too), ice tea or lemonade. A 3-day Festival Pass is just $50 per person. Tickets will be available at the gate.
Attendees will be encouraged to follow covid-safe practices, masking and distancing as appropriate. Chairs and tables will be situated at a 6-feet distance and the event will be limited to 150 people.
This event is sponsored by the Sierra County Arts Council, For more information call the Black Range Lodge at 575-895-5652, or visit www.blackrangelodge.com
