The California Bluegrass Association is very pleased to finally offer an instructional camp for kids during our 38th Annual Father's Day Festival in Grass Valley this year. We will still offer Kids on Bluegrass, our performance activity for young people and our expanded KidFest, our recreational activity.

Then, there's the jamming -- always a festival favorite! One of the things that makes the Father's Days Festival so special is the amount of jamming that takes place, day and night - and the setting you'll be jamming in: bucolic, pine-scented, sun-dappled natural beauty!

And that's not all - there's great food and drink, the Luthier's Pavilion, the amazing Old Time Gathering. And tons of stuff for the younger set - Kids on Bluegrass, the Youth Program.
