Florida Gulf Coast Dulcimer Retreat
Homosassa Riverside Resort
Homosassa, Florida
 
You'll have a ton of fun at this festival. Why? The guests, the instructors, and the venue. The guests are mostly repeat attendees - because they had fun the first time they came, and never stopped returning. The instructors? Bing Futch, Richard Ash, Sharrie George, and Guy George. Can you imagine a more friendly, collegial artist roster? The venue - located on the Homosassa River, with tons of wildlife - birds, manatees, and the occasional shark. (Just kidding about the sharks!)

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!
