August 3, 4, & 5, 2023

Each year, during the first full weekend of August, this sleepy mountain village is transformed into the largest festival of it’s kind in the western hemisphere!  The Yellow Pine Music and Harmonica festival is a family-friendly, harmonica focused music festival held outdoors in the Idaho backwoods.

The Music

While still honoring our harmonica beginnings, we have evolved to include all music genres. Musicians from all over the world come to Yellow Pine to perform at the festival.
