Festivl kids

We also encourage the kids to stop by the Down Home Guitar tent to try out a variety bluegrass instruments!

 

Our kids area is always in need for volunteers! Volunteers can help with crafts, filling water coolers, helping out in the teen and toddler areas, and general clean-up. This also accounts for community service hours, for more information please contact Brooke Groszek at 815-277-7111 or bgroszek4@gmail.com
