ODPC Funfest
Evart, Michigan

This is a huge festival, full of great jams (if there was ever a festival known for its legendary jams, this would be the one!), superb classes from top-tier instructors, vendors, camping, food, and more. Be sure to visit the Folkcraft display and check out our latest dulcimers (and a whole lot more). Richard will be bringing his repair tools, so if you need frets, strings, strap buttons, and other small jobs (that don't require the facilities of our complete wood shop) be sure to stop by and drop off your instrument!
