(Saturday, 10:30 – 11:30 A.m. and 2 – 3 p.m.; Sunday, 10 – 11 a.m. + performance time Sunday at 11:30 a.m.)
With parents’ or guardians’ permission, kids can participate in Bluegrass Kids’ Camp, hosted by Gerry Higbie and Joy Louise and the Parkfield Camp Band. Camp meets for one hour at a time and culminates Sunday at 11:30 a.m. with a kids’ stage performance.

Kids are asked to attend each of the Camp sessions. Kids can bring an acoustic instrument (guitar, ukulele, banjo, fiddle, bass, mandolin) and learn to play the tunes as outlined in the Song Sheets above.  Classes are geared to the beginner, and advancing players are welcome. Kids can also play a practiced, individual tune of choice on stage. Bring one old time, old time country/gospel, folk or bluegrass number.

(Saturday, noon)

Juanita McAdams and her loyal assistants from Lompoc present a kids’ craft project at noon on Saturday. The kids will make a lovely gift for Mom. It’s a good idea to wear old clothes in case of spills.
