Now in its 47th year, it is the longest continuously running music festival in the United States. It is celebrated by a community which considers itself a family. Everyone arriving, whether for the first or fortieth time is greeted with, “Welcome Home!” Over the course of the 18 days and nights, activities are provided for all ages with a focus on nurturing and developing artistic expression, especially the art of songwriting, in a loving family-friendly environment.
