Children’s Tent & School Visits


Regretfully, ALL Children’s Youth Tent activities for Thursday & Friday ARE CANCELLED out of concern for the health and safety of the 1,200 third and forth graders we normally have visit. We do not have enough space in the tent to distance the children appropriately. We have also CANCELLED sending bands into the local schools this year. We look forward to having these activities again in 2022.
SATURDAY’S Youth Instrument Contests and Youth Band Contests WILL BE HELD! There is enough space in the tent to safely have contestants throughout the day on Saturday and we look forward to seeing the talent and progress these young musicians bring to our festival. Admission to the Youth Tent is included in your festival ticket. Masks covering nose and mouth are encouraged for all when not on stage competing.
