"Our secret," said festival founder Zale Schoenborn. "is that we continue to double down on choices that only make sense when your primary focus is to make the best experience possible, even when it sometimes conflicts with maximizing profits.

Entering our 21st year, Pickathon remains inspired to innovate new ways to create the best festival experience."
