Free Admission and public welcome! Everyone is encouraged to bring their instruments.
Evening Stage Shows: Thursday–Gospel, Friday–Favorite Artist in Costume, Saturday–Dance Bands. Jamming all day, open mic in the afternoons.
Workshops offered include banjo, using a mic, advanced fiddling, vocal harmonies and instrument repair.

The OOTFA encourages members to use easy, familiar cover songs for dance bands playing older, familiar, simple songs. Complex songs that can’t be picked up on by the other players are known as band-busters.
