FESTIVALS

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SPRING-FEST will  be April 26-27-28, 2019, at the Oak Tree Performance Center in Anita, Iowa.




 

44th 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 make 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 3-4-5-6, 2019


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.  


4 STAGES  of entertainment for four straight days!
