"The festival sold out in record time last year," said Pam Carter, president of the Mariposa Folk Foundation, "and with such a dynamic and diverse lineup, Mariposa 2023 is once again sure to be a hot ticket.

"There's something for every age and preference. I'm particularly moved to see the number of three-generation families that gather at the festival. Some of the magic of Mariposa is our constant evolution to remain relevant and true to our roots for generations to come."
