Accessibility at the Sisters Folk Festival


Accessibility Ambassadors are wearing blue vests. They are available to provide information relevant to our patrons with disabilities and assist with gaining access to our music venues.

 Patrons with Mobility Limitations

  • The Festival is held in 11 venues throughout Sisters, with some distance between stages. Much of it is outdoors, with some stages situated in parks or grassy areas; therefore, some travel is over natural terrain.
  • The Festival does not provide rental mobility devices. In addition, the Festival does not provide golf-cart rides of push services.
  • Wheelchairs, power-wheelchairs and three- or four-wheeled scooters are permitted for use by patrons with mobility limitations.
  • Accessible bathrooms or portable toilets are available at all venues.


Accessible parking is available on city streets as marked. There is additional accessible parking signed at some venues and in two parking lots at the east end of Cascade Avenue at Sisters City Hall and the Sisters School Administration building. The shuttle bus will stop periodically at those parking lots.

Accessible Venue Entries

If there is a designated entry for patrons with disabilities it will be signed. Otherwise the venue entrance is accessible. Please feel free to approach any volunteer at the venue entrance to ask for help with accessible seating and possible early access to the venue.

If you have questions in advance of the Festival, please call our office at 541-549-4979 or email [email protected].
