Original 1st printing 8&73/8 x 12&7/8" double-sided (map on the reverse) concert/event flyer for the 2nd Sky River Rock Festival, held in Tenino, WA from 8/30-9/1/1969.

Medium-thin flat stock flyer is in good/decent (B to B/B-) condition; there are a series of semi-pronounced horizontal/vertical/diagonal bends scattered throughout the piece, along with a moderate amount of handling wear/creasing, a few stray tiny edge nips and creases scattered around the outer margin area, a touch of toning and a bit of corner-tip wear (diagonal creasing and a few tiny pin-prick holes in the lower right corner), otherwise OK.
Very neat (and uncommon) late-1969 PNW festival artifact from the second edition of Sky River. Read more about the event (complete with first-hand recollections) HERE:
