Early Thursday Entry passes: the charms of an extra day at Pendarvia
Pickathon Square Dance With Caller Caroline Oakley
Monday June 13, 2016

Early Thursday Entry passes are a perfect way to add an extra day to your Pickathon Weekend

Each year, we open the festival for Thursday early entry at noon so folks can get set up and settled in before the full-blown festivities kick off on Friday. Thursday early entry can be a great way to enjoy all the same food & beverage vendors and facilities along with the convenience of setting up before the gates officially open Friday morning.

Arriving on Thursday is not just for convenience alone. We have many fantastic sets scheduled for Thursday evening, including the fun and popular Squaredance, that are sure to make the evening worthwhile.

It’s important to know,  there are only a limited number of early entry tickets sold each year to keep a lid on crowd sizes, and these tickets generally sell pretty fast. This year they’re going faster than usual, too! So reserve your Thursday early entry tickets ASAP at to have first dibs and an extra bonus night at Pickathon!

And check out the following Thursday night sets to add to your festival schedule. With little more than 50 days to the festival, it’s time to start getting stoked about these fantastic artists!
