Enjoy a variety of free workshops, participate in free jam sessions and have a delicious Bluegrass Brunch at one of our local eateries. Don't miss over 50 hours of foot-stomping bluegrass! Make a weekend out of it!
Don't miss the Upper Midwest Flatpick Guitar Championship and new this year the Singer/Songwriter Competition which promises to be an exciting competition among the best of the best. Prizes will be awarded for the top three artists including a hand crafted guitar to the overall winner.
