    Workshops and Activities

    10am Music for the Kiddos – Pavilion

    Chad Elliott is a man of many talents. One of them we just learned about is entertaining the young ones with music. While adults are allowed, we ask that you save the good seats for the youngest among us. 

    10am Limber Bows – Meet at the Merch Tent

    If you like to walk, hike, ski, dance, do yoga, or just about any other activity, you will want to join this session with Johnny Hermanson to learn about Limber Bows.  When you first see them, you might think they’re just funky walking sticks. But the function, experience, and limitless uses make them remarkable and worth checking out. Hear their story from the inventor himself and demo a pair if you wish. 

    11am Guitar Round Table – Campfire (aka outdoor chapel)

    Some of us are singers who were forced to learn the guitar. Some of us are guitar players who learned to sing. Then there are those of us who can’t even tap our heads and rub our bellies at the same time. Regardless of your skills, we’ll save you a seat. Let’s share some stories about how we found our way with a guitar, or what amazes us. We want to hear your stories too. 

    11am Artsy and Crafty – Meet at the Merch Tent

    We will have some fun crafts geared towards the youngsters. It’ll be a little bit of a surprise, but we’ll tease you by saying you’ll get to take a mini Chris and Johnny home with you. 

    11am – 1pm Art Gallery – Dining Hall

    A few of our musicians are also talented artists in other mediums. Soak in the beauty, chat with the artists, or maybe even take home a new piece for your living room. No hard sales pitches, and no food or beverage near the art please. 

    12pm Lunch Break

    2pm   Songwriting Panel – Pavilion

    The songwriting process seems very mystical. You’ve got questions, and a panel of Fest musicians will make up answers. Where does your inspiration come from? How do you know when a song is finished? I’ve got this phrase in my head, is it a chorus or a verse? 

    4pm   More music on the big stage 

    Schedule, locations, and workshops schedule to change.

    Feeling like you want something different for your Saturday? Here are some other ideas for you: bring a mountain bike and helmet to explore the miles of trails, find a spot to hang your hammock and soak up the sun or a good book, relax on the swings overlooking the lake, book a round of golf at Ruttgers, visit one of the many local breweries, enjoy the beach and waterfront (at your own risk, no lifeguards, keep an eye on the kiddos), visit the Cuyuna Rec Area (mountain biking, kayak, paddleboard, scuba diving) only 11 miles away, or just park yourself at one of the picnic tables and share stories with your new friends. A great local resource is www.cuyuna.com.
