Festival Attendees should plan to be at the Winfield Fairgrounds prior to Sunday, September 9th at 1:00 pm. at which time it is anticipated the Walnut Valley Festival Campers will be allowed to move into the campgrounds. Walnut Valley officials have met with local authorities to discuss the current situation regarding the wet campgrounds as well as the Walnut River impact from the heavy rain that fell in Butler County last Wednesday evening. It has been determined that the Walnut River has already crested at 10 feet Thursday night in Winfield and has now begun to recede.
Any information stating that camping for the Walnut Valley Festival is going to be moved to the Winfield City Lake is not correct. Plans call for the campgrounds at the Winfield Fairgrounds to be opened on this coming Sunday, September 9 at 1:00 pm. WVA requests that attendees refer to official Festival websites for information or current plans and activities of WVA.
