We're sorSorry to say, we've not been able to 'open for business' our little Oak Tree Opry.  Sheila and I had a full summer of gigs lined up, including performing at the International Peace Gardens and the Homestead National Monument.  ALL of them cancelled.  No business, no work, means we are without an income. There's no way we can pay the bills to do the Fremont Festival this year.  

We hope to be 'back in business' next year, but it sure isn't happening this year.  We appreciate and are very thankful to those of you who have helped us out with some donations and lots of support. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Bob Everhart, President, NTCMA


45th National Old

Time Music Festival


Has been priced out at LeMars, Iowa.  The unsurmountable attempt at raising the cost of doing the festival both for the year and the year ahead at the same time made it financially impossible for us to continue in LeMars.  We have moved the 44th National with different location and different dates.  It will be held at the Christiansen Field House in Fremont, Nebraska....

October 1-2-3-4, 2020

This festival is sponsored by Royal Flair Music Publishing Company affiliated with BMI, Broadcast Music Inc., and the Iowa Agricultural Expo, a presentation of Rural America's life-style, from agricultural living to agricultural artistic and musical aspirations, and the Rural Roots Music Commission.  

3 STAGES  of entertainment for four straight days!



It takes a ton of money to put a festival of this size and length.  Once you have your ticket, it covers everything on the grounds.  One-day adult admission, for all four stages, is $20 Thur-Sun.  There is no further senior discount.  Anyone under the age of 18 gets in 'free' of charge.  An adult 4-day season pass is only $70.  Hard to beat that. Please ask about our special bus-load admission prices.


There is a huge parking area right next to the staging complex, very easy to walk the short distance to any of the major stages.  The parking fee is $2 per day for each vehicle utilizing the property to park a vehicle.


We have 150 30-amp electrical hook-ups first come first serve, no reservations)  Camping is on a level field only steps from the entire 4-stage complex.  Sidewalks and easy walking make all of the building handicapped accessible.  Camping fees with electric and water are only $20 a day. There is a free dump station on the grounds.  If you choose to camp in a tent, it's only $10 a day.  A car accompanying a camper is free. 


We pride ourselves in having good food at this event. Everything from burgers - cheeseburgers - wood-fired pizza - cheese curds - turkey legs - pulled pork - chicken with rice - brisket - egg roll - ribbon fries - plantains - chili dogs - steak fingers -  to an authentic 'Philly" sandwich, and just about everything in between from  to kettle korn, ice cream to soda pop, and hamburgers to potato ribbons.  Not expensive either.
